Put some Yamaha VStar 1100 saddlebags on my C50.
A riding buddy has these bags and got them from a guy on craigslist super cheap. With a custom bracket and some drilling, got them mounted.
Changes the entire look of the bike.

They fit the bike great, larger than Suzuki oems. Actually, they're from a v-star 1300, better than what came on the 1100s.

Very nice looking and they follow the contours of the bike very well. How difficult are they to take off and put back on? I have to park on the street and can't leave gear like that overnight.

Very nice. Suzuki needs to look at these pics and make some OEM bags like that. Great job

Do you think these Yamaha hard bags from their 950 Touring model are the same?

At this time, they are not going to be easy to take off. I bolted them directly on with extended fender bolts. The bags do have a push button locks though.

Going to look at figuring out how to make them quick release (if even possible).

do they interfere with the passenger pegs at all? they look like the clear it, but cant tell by how much
They do clear, I had my wife sit on the bike to figure out how far back I would need to go. Oddly had to end up pushing the left side bag back just a tad bit more to accommodate.

Those are the same, but they may be smaller if they are for the 950.
I have a friend that has a V-1100 and has the same bags on his bike / haven't had a chance to get them side-x-side yet.
