Never even knew their company existed until now, but their bags look great and reviews are positive.
The size looks similar to the OEM panniers Triumph offers, so I'd assume they fit fine without touching the exhaust pipe. Maybe a local store sells them and you can get one for testing? Return it if the bag doesn't fit.

I have some of their clothes and dig them, plus they just announced today that the bag now comes in black. Doesn't look like we have any local retailers, might just order one and return it if it doesn't work.

Just saw that announcement of their bag in black. Looks really good and would also be interested in anyone’s reviews of it.

They've got 3 brick and mortar stores, along with some retail partners. Anybody close?
there's 2 that i know of in southern california: ventura, and venice. i'm not far from both of them. was going to check out the ventura location last saturday but got caught up on other stuff. hopefully will get a chance to visit one of their locations in next few weeks (can't this weekend - will be in vegas baby!) from their website, those panniers are listed as available at their stores. will keep everyone posted once i get to visit their store.

Great. Will appreciate the first hand look and opinion. Looking forward to seeing it mounted on someone’s Bobber.

This looks awesome! Apologies for being out of the loop, but what're h/b brackets? I was planning to pick up the Triumph pannier mount

Hepco Becker. Not pretty to look at on the eye , but not seen behind the bags. I slotted the bottom part of the bracket for easy removal last night. It will still require diligence to remove them when servicing , cleaning or if you plain don't want to run them , but it will cut install/removal time from PITA levels to just a little inconvenient. I'll post up pics when complete.

Big Bear, since the I&R bags have those four ring hooks and various strap combos, is it possible to hook
and tie them on for day rides without having to have either the Hepco or Triumph pannier bars? The bag lols really great but, I don’t want to have any permanent bars. Thanks.

Maybe , but it seems like you would have to get real creative.

hey man did you ever get the chance to stop by the store and try them on your pannier brackets?

unfortunately i haven't had a chance to go visit one of their stores, as it's on my list of to do things - looks like they have cool items/clothing etc. i don't have any brackets on my bike, so i wanted to take a look at the bags in person to see the quality and how the straps were and if i could devise a way to somehow attach them without any brackets - doesn't look like it may be possible though. too bad, as i like how the bags have the retro old school look that compliments the bobber so well. since i don't want to mount any brackets on the bike, may have to go with something like one of the sw-motech legend gear tail bags that can easily strap to the rear fender. also seems like they would go well with the bobber.

I concur that the SW-Motech bags certainly look like they'd complement the Bobber. Note that the Bike Brothers luggage rack stipulates a 5kg/11lb load limit. Other luggage racks may be similar.

Although both SW-Motech bags will likely fit, I suspect that once loaded the 2nd tail bag would be well over the weight limit. I don't know how accurate the prescribed weight limit is, but it's something that you should consider when selecting your bag.
