    Indian Dark Horse
    Hey together, I bought a Chief Dark Horse 2019 and I really love the blacked out style. Now I'm searching for the right saddlebags, but on the Indian shop I can find only leather saddlebags with lots of chrome pieces and white stitches. I wish Indian would offer also blacked out leather...

  4. Saddlebag Premium Audio Worth it on 2018 Chieftain?

    Indian Chieftain
    I am toying with the idea of adding the premium saddlebag audio speakers to my 2018 Chieftain Classic.

    Indian Chief Vintage
    After losing (and then finding) a saddlebag yesterday, and seeing someone else posting on here last night about finding one on the highway, I'm curious if any of you have changed the way the saddlebags mount to your bike. I was a little nervous with mine prior to having it fall off yesterday...

  7. Scout Bag Options with 2:1 exhaust?

    Indian Scout
    Anyone install longer bags on their scout when changing exhaust to 2:1? Also, what are the options for mounting that won't leave the bags so far from the fender. I just am not a fan of the open gap between fender and bag when using easy brackets.
  8. Scout Bobber Saddlebag Measurements

    Indian Scout
    Looking at possibly making my own saddlebags for my scout bobber. Like the look of the OEM bobber saddlebag, but 279.00 for a single bag seems steep to me and it bothers me they don't have the bag for the other side. Can anyone with the saddlebag able send me the measurements of their bag? Thanks.

  13. Falling Saddlebag Club

    Indian Chief Vintage
    I joined the falling saddlebag club today. It jumped off my bike at 75MPH and to my surprize it stayed together and suffered only some minor road rash. And more amazingly my wife's phone and purse survived as well. I am pretty compulsive about that sort of thing and I will never be convinced...
