If your wallet doesn’t extend to the Tsuyaku fiberglass bags (which are, admittedly, awesome), look at LeatherLyke bags. Hard, locking, waterproof, wicked tough.

I had National Cycle CruiseLiners. Though they were narrow, they were deep and long enough to carry a lot of gear.

When I had a Vol, I rode with Saddlemen X-Jumbo sized bags. They fit the curve of the back fender really well, and held a ton. I reinforced them with a thin birchwood backer on the inside (and nylon nuts) to keep them from sagging. E-Z Brackets I think was the for secure system to hold them on to the bike, and let you take them off easily too. I could probably find a picture if you wanted.

Of course that was a while ago. Not sure if those Saddlemen bags or the E-Z Brackets still exist anymore.

EDIT: Easy Brackets still exist: https://www.greatbikegear.com/easybrackets.html#/
And Saddlemen still makes those bags I used: https://www.saddlemen.com/motorcycle...rsal?limit=100
