I’m having the hardest time finding saddlebags to fit my SCR. I have a set of Adventure Spec Magadan bags and they are way too big. I got some Chase Harper Phoenix bags and they will be fine around town but probably not great for traveling. For the folks with the Fehling supports, what are you using? Leather bags? Any bags that fit under the seat?

Probably not much use to you in the US, but I got a pair of Frank Thomas leather saddlebags:

Frank Thomas Leather Pannier - Cargo Luggage - Collection

Frank Thomas have been around for ages in the U.K., and have gone in and out of business about 10 times (a bit like Indian!! :laugh:).

They’re a lovely fit though, look great on the bike - really suit it - and the ‘choke’ (center-bit) just about lies comfortably under the seat. You have to do a bit of aligning, but the bags zip off, so it can stay on the bike once fitted. I did have to remove the two rear rubber bungs from underneath the seat before fitting it once. Easily done though.

If you ever got caught in a downpour though, your stuff is going to get wet!! :grin2:

Thanks for the recommendation. Even if I can’t get it, it helps steer me in a good direction!

I use Nelson Riggs saddle bags. They are large, but perfect for my needs. I can fit my full-sized helmet in either side.
Nice, and thanks for the pics! I was wondering how those bags looked on the bike.

You need bags like that for your cojones if you ride in that kind of weather.

My son once pulled two huge watermelons from the stock leather bags on his Heritage Softail. Lol.

I second Nelson Rigg bags. I don't use them on my SCR, but I have a pair I've been using on my V65 Magna for at least a decade. Used them on a 750 Nighthawk as well. They're just good all-around bags, and huge. Prob could fit two watermelons per bag.

My thought, exactly. A month after buying my SCR in 12/17, REI had a great sale and I bought a pair of zip-off waterproof rain pants. Left them in the bag a month or so, then returned them when I figured out I'm not going to be riding in conditions where I'd need them. Only got caught out once, and it was a frog-choker, but I parked under a gas station roof until it subsided and made my merry way home afterward. I saw all the water I needed in my Navy days.
