I prefer the look/style of these "patrol bags" over the ones Yamaha offers for our bikes. I'm sure it's just me though, I tend to go for the more traditional look in a cruiser bike like ours since that's the way I remember my dads bike being.
Just know that the combined volume of the Tsukayu bags is slightly smaller than the stock ones(50 liters(ea.) vs. 52.4 for the Road Star bags), but when you save like $500 that's more than acceptable to me!

What would scare me about the bags opoening for the front is they may somehow blow open going down the road if the latch breaks or doesn't fully catch. A side or front hinged bag wouldn't have that problem. JMHO
