Royal Enfield Saddlebags on Triumph Bonneville
« on: October 22, 2007, 03:10:14 PM »
Hello all,
     I am new to this forum.  I was wondering if anyone knows if the leather Royal Enfield saddlebags would fit on my 2007 Triumph Bonneville.  This may be a stupid question, but I am not only new to this forum, but this is my first motorcycle and learning as I go along.  Thanks for the help.

I dont have the bags yet, I just really like the look of them.  I was just hoping they would fit before I made the purchase.  Ive been looking around at other bags, and I just dont like the look of many them.

Dean - I have the tan leather RE bags on my 500 Classic - they have three mounting straps, two on the top, one in the lower middle, to attach the bags to the upper and lower mudguard supports.  Don't think you'll have a place to strap them on your Bonney...

You may want to consider waiting until tomorrow or the next day before you buy those bags just in case they should happen to be on our Halloween sale! hint hint

Thanks for the tip on those bags.  Maybe ill just purchase them and see if I cant get someone to rig something up so they fit the Bonneville.

Rhett says that he may have the sale up tonight yet. Tomorrow Am and the latest. If you see something you like, don't wait as the quantities are limited and it is first come first serve. We have many items at prices you will never see again anywhere. On Halloween it disappears like Cinderella at Midnight.

Oops, Rhett worked all night to get the sale up and forgot the bags. I will get them up by the end of the day for sure.

Those tan bags would look superb on my 350 Classic, but postage costs to the UK would probably bankrupt me.  Ah, well.
