    I baught the CORTEX saddlebags, easy on easy off for those times when I want to HAUL
    the GOOD STUFF.  They look the best on the Raider and they expand out for the times you need to throw in extras.

    If you have a sissy bar with a rack you could find a decent bag. If you dont have a passenger you can find a second piece of luggage. Between the two you can carry a twelve pack. When you don't need them tear apart the velcro and leave 'm in the garage.

    I don't need no stinking bags.

      I know what you mean.  I miss the storage that I had with my silverado bags.  But those kind of bags just do not look right on the Raider.  I do have the Yamaha bags however.  They are smaller but the do handle my immediate needs.  Trade offs happen and I will settle for what I have just to ride this beast.

      Mr BikerBrackets
      Can you take a few more photo's of these bags please.  I would really like to see what they look like and how they look on the Raider.
      Thanks

      Here's the only pic I have of the bags I have on my bike. They are large Willie Max bags with a rigid back on Pacific Coast quick detach brackets. They are big enough I can fit one of those 12pk refridgerator cases in each with a little room left over. The biggest complaint I have is the brackets make the bags stick way out from the sides of the bike. But the payoff is I can take the bags off at the end of the day and take them into the motel room with me.

      Next to Ghost and his corbin hard bags, I like those the best of any other bags I've seen on the raider. I think it does well with a raven model to just blend in enough to really work!

      Thank you. I'm quite pleased with them. So much so I usually just leave them on despite thinking a Raider should be a "clean" bike with a minimum of geegaws.
