    Are Viking luggage any good?

    I have been looking for some low price saddlebags on internet and Viking really caught my attention.
    I want to know if they are any good in terms of reliability and price to value ratio?

    Wait...you need saddle bags for a GoldWing???

    After using your link I was reminded of the Valkyrie!

    IMHO, with Viking you get what you pay for or, GOOD "Price to Value ratio". I had a set of "Pleather" bags on a Honda VTX 1300 R that held up well even with constants use. You may need to do a little modification here and there to make them fit. After drilling the mounting holes in the bags I added some metal plates for more support where the inside wall of the bags sit next to the mounting rail.

    That has been my experience too with aftermarket bags. Normally you have to follow up with a bit more engineering to make them work well.
