    Looks like you bolted to the mounts a bit forward and lower then center from the middle of the side panels? Have ordered the brack and am thinking of the same bags...just in a flat black. Thanks in advance for any input. Dave

    Can you elaborate on your seat? Is it day long? What's the backrest?

    Yes, it's a Russel Day Long seat. The backrest is their standard one.

    Here are some examples of surplus bags both on my bike and a guy traveling all over the country on an nc700x similar

    I thought they don't do backrests. I have Low Corbin with aftermarket backrest and it puts me to close to a tank and it's very hard too. But still better than OEM seat for sure. Too bad Russel is so expensive... Will think about it, maybe will sell Corbin and get Russel later...

    They sell two different backrests. The other one is a bit lower. I have mine adjusted all the way back and it feels about right. I can ride straight up without touching it. Remember that with this backrest you have to step over the bike rather than swing your leg over.

    Since I've never had a Corbin I can only go by what I've read. Basically the Corbin is usually better than stock and the RDL is better than the Corbin. How much better I can't say.
