We are extremely pleased to be the the first aftermarket company to release a high quality and affordable saddlebag setup for Harley-Davidson's hottest new bike, the Pan America!!! After doing a bit of research, the consensus was the rails needed to be placed on the outside of the bags to protect both the bags and the bike. Since the Pan America is used off-road this is a necessity and why other bag manufacturers don't have any cages around the bags is still a mystery to us. The bags are waterproof, lockable with a lifetime warranty, you can't go wrong with this setup, we received multiple orders from Harley-Davidson dealerships around the USA within 48 hours and have started production. Send us a message to get on the pre-order. WE ARE ONLY OFFERING THE 2 SIDE CASES/FRAMES FOR ONLY $599.
