    I would've thought the local Harley dealer in Perth would be an obvious place.

    Far as I know, Harley do not make saddlebags for each model. They do for the tourers but not for the real bikes.
    Lots of aftermarket stuff out there on ebay etc.
    Or you could get a set of "easy brackets" or "ghost brackets" that can be attached to whatever sort of luggage you fancy. These come with keys and a quick release system so you can use anything from a lunch box to a violin case or a wheelie bin as your saddlebag.

    Binnsy had some nice ones on his old Fatboy. He’s sold the bike though and got a tourer. 

    Seriously. Look at Finnmoto for brackets and bags or fire511 a member who makes fantastic swing arm bags. 
    A google search will give you an idea what’s out there.

    Steelo, that is a pretty gay bit of a luggage arrangement.
    Reminds me of this picture.
    I think the Finnmoto brackets are the same things as easy brackets.

    Not bad, I might get a set, so the bike doesn't get stolen.

    When you say "They do for the tourers but not for the real bikes." ......you really meant to say...."Harley don't do bags for the poser bikes as most owners don't go beyond the local coffee shop and see their bikes as a status symbol and mostly drive a car to do any distance so Harley with their vast research decided to not waste their money"

    'The real bikes are ridden to enjoy the essence of motorcycling not enclosed passenger vehicles.'
    Agree with this 100%
    Riding a bike is about travelling light, one of the first things you learn.
    I have saddlebags for both my bikes, one set HD, the other after-market, but rarely fitted for trips less than a week, maybe a rally. Overnighters and long weekends, everything fits on the quick release sissybar/luggage rack, including sleeping bag or swag if required.
    Don't know anyone who goes for a ride in metro traffic 2klms from home for fun; maybe in qld.

    Just a bit of friendly heckling from me Pauly as I know how much you just love your Street glide.
    I don't really care what bike anyone rides or where they ride it.

    It's what you get up to in those 2 kilometres, it does here in Qld any way.
