I think it goes well with the overall look of your bike.

I do like the rear guards and am lucky enough to have a skilled pal who rides a Harley and owns a torque wrench. Working with Ray, we got the guards on in about an hour, as I recall. I also like the black plastic guards which protect the actual guard if the bike tips. You can barely see them on our blacked-out bikes.

They're available here:

Smile My Viking has landed

My Viking Tour Pak arrived today and I am very pleased with the quality. So tomorrow, I'll get smaller bolts to fit the H-D solo tour pad rack, followup with Viking on the extra key, and get everything installed. Thanks for the good advice on this thread

[QUOTE=vabikersteve;17916791 I guess my one "complaint" about the bag is that it's always in the locked position (from what I can tell, at least).
Steve[/QUOTE]

I agree. I am got to check around and see if it is possible to replace the lock and mechanism without totally screwing up the lid. I remember push button lock on an old H-D leather tour pak from a Road King Classic that could be closed in either the locked or unlocked position.

I've just fitted them on my '19 Heritage. I read some posts where people seem to have had trouble undoing the rear footrest mount screws, so I was prepared for a battle with them, but they were no trouble to release. You will need a 4 inch T45 torx bit (an 18" breaker bar is also handy). Any shorter than 4" will not be able to reach the screw head which is buried down in the footrest support. While I loathe torx fixings, these screws are at least socket headed, so there is plenty of 'meat' for the bit to engage with.

Oh, and the fixings kit supplied with the guards was missing two of the screws, so it's probably worth checking them before you leave the dealership.

I also remember that push-button lock on the leather H-D Tour-Pak for my 2013 Deluxe. I was a little surprised to see that Viking is using the lock-only mechanism.
I agree with you about this thread – some great advice!
Ride safely in 2019,

Steve

A 4" T45? Where would I get something like that?

I like the idea of these, the link is for a generic part it seems. How's the fitment? Was there any adjustment needed to get them to fit properly?

Been following this thread regarding the rear bag guards. Have wanted to put them on my Cherry for a while now.

When looking ON-line to see if there was a less exspensive product but could not find an aftermarket product so I was stuck with going H-D.

However I found them on this H-D site for a fairly good discount and free shipping as it was still over $150. https://shopbigskyharley.com/collect...uards-90201315

Decided to order them from them as you very rarely see dealers discounting anything. Kinda wants to make me move to Montana, like that will never happen!
