Saddlebags and Fork bag.
« on: July 13, 2012, 04:04:32 AM »
Hello all I'm new to this forum. I just picked a 2012 Royal Enfield Bullet C5 Chrome. It has a dark brown single seat. I was wondering what model saddle bags would work/match with that seat. Or would I need to order a back rack and attach it to that. Also I was wanting to get a fork bag, do they come with everything I need or do I need to order sperate parts for that as well.
Thanks again!  :)

A year or so ago NField gear was selling fork bags on clearance.   They were decent with an Royal Enfield embossed on them.  I use mine for my spare cables and keep my tools in one of the locked toolboxs.  Wish I had bought 3 when they had offered them.  Sadly it seems that you can't get them any more but there are a few similar on ebay.    It depends on the fork bag and straps supplied as to how you fit it.   Usually they go on pretty easy.

OK,  so I my post is not all that helpfull.

Hi
You can contact Almos auto for saddle and fork bags. I saw them a few days ago on their website. I guess they also do customized bags, so you can contact them and ask if they could make a bag for you to match the colour of your seat.

Google "Almos auto".

After doing this, I ended up at their site which has everything priced in rupees indicating it is in India.

Dang, good find.  Sure cheaper on tool bags than I could find on Ebay.  I also found the drop down to change currency to US dollars.  I'm tempted to pull the trigger.

Thanks.

Unbeknownst to most people, Wally World (Walmart) sells some pretty decent saddlebags and a possible fork bag, that may be a bit too big, but is very nice. It does work on the rear grabhandle quite well. The prices aren't bad, the fork bag is $20 and the Bags are about $70.

I got a pretty nice set of bags off Amazon for dirt cheap.  Synthetic though, not real leather.  They have cooler inserts and a beer opener though, haha!

They've fit most every bike I've slung them over.  For a while I was super paranoid about something getting caught in the chain or wheel, but never had an issue.
