Mutazu Harley Bags 2 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
Well I picked up my Mutazu 2014 Harley Davidson saddle bags today. I also ordered the HD Softail bag mount from Ebay. Installed 1 side but found that with my Freedom Racing Duals I have to redrill another mount hole 1/2" lower to raise the bags. He is a pic of what they look like so far. It got to hot in the garage (104 degrees)., so I will finish tomorrow. I will get them painted as soon as I decide on whether I am going to get a fairing installed also!

Mike,

I like those much better than the others. Very nice. IMO I'd go with the fairing and paint. Keep it up, looks great !!

Re:Mutazu Harley Bags 2 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
The bags look great on there. A ton better than the stock bags.
I love having a fairing on my HD, but I also like my RS that does not have one. They are great for colder days, but when the temp gets up higher (85 and above) I would much rather ride without one to get the extra air.
If I was in California like you are, I don't think I would spend the money on a fairing, but that is just me. Lot's of people ride year around with one and don't seem to mind them.

Re:Mutazu Harley Bags 2 Months ago  
Well I followed Lances advice and checked the screw for the latch opener and it was loose. So I took them both out and added LocTite to them. I also found new brackets to make the bags a lot easier to take off and put on. In the picture below, the one on the left came with the softail conversion bracket and the one on the right is the a kit I found on Ebay.

Here is a picture of them installed with the bags.

This was a great investment. I can now lock my bags and not worry to much that someone will get into them. Thank you Lance(Doc_V) for your help. Now to sell my Leatherwork bags and EZ brackets.

I might be interested in buying the easy brackets if you want to separate them from the bags.

Thanks Jay, I'm anxious waiting to get my fairing! And it's only been a week since I ordered it.
