I'm looking at buying one of these brands. I like the Leatherlyke bags because I can get a matching trunk. I'd like your opinion of 1) what looks best on the Retro, 2) which one is your favorite and why?

Thanks!

It really depends on if you're going for the bagger look, or going to do some touring, personally, I like the Natl Cycle ones. You can always use a T-bag for long trips for storage.

I tried a few combinations, but National Cycle hard bags worked well for me. Main thing was that the NCycle mounting brackets, the NC Sissy Bar and pad, and a good luggage rack fit together. Also, when you get ready to ride bare, or do a good rear cleaning, or service job, you can unlock the mounting brackets and it all just comes right off the bike.
1000 miles and think I made the right choice.

I've got the leatherlyke and really like them. I don't have any pics to post, but I can say that they hold quite a bit. I've put two twelve packs of soda in each without a problem and can easily fit a couple of gallon jugs in there as well (obviously not at the same time). I've seen other bags that fit the contours of the bike better but I do the amount of storage they provide. Good luck with your choice.

Are they plenty wide so that they can hold alot?

I vote LL. I don't like the way hard bags look, LL looks like softbags.

I love the Leather Lyke bags. They hold a ton of stuff,and they are easily removeable.

The Leatherlyke hold my leather jacket plus room for spare gear and have the secured helmet hook on the back under the cover. I haven't measured them for dimensions but haven't had a problem when stopping somewhere or picking things up. My large 17" laptop in its portfolio case wont quite fit in the opening. What are you looking to carry?
