Finally one of my full rig (minus the pillion pad).  I love the Fire Quartz in the sun.

Looks good.  I have the brown solo spring saddle and brown bags on my blacked out bike.  Was thinking about getting your seat though to sit a little lower.  Spring seat adds about 2 - 3 inches of height.  Kills me that the saddles and bags are not the same color brown.  Every single picture from HD of them show the same color though.  Got mine last year and the dealer even called Harley and they said they were going to correct that in all the catalogs.  But haven't done it yet.

I met someone who works a lot with leather and advised me to go over the bags and apply a Darkening Conditioner.  I'm going to look more into my options are as far as different products.  Will let all you know what I get for an outcome.

I've got some results gents.  I went to visit the Oregon Leather Co. here in nearby downtown Portland.  They happen to carry mostly FIEBING'S products.  I took in one of the lighter saddlebags and told them I wanted to match it to my darker seat.  We initially agreed that the seat looked like the Oil Dye color "Chocolate".  After preping the bags with "Dye-Prep", I tested the dye on the bottom panel of one of bags - way too dark and seemed to be lacking the redish tint so I tried the Oil Dye color "Walnut" on the bottom panel of the other bag.  The shade seemed to be close but still too dark.  After reconsulting with Oregon Leather folks I learned that my technique needed to be modified in that I needed to dab most of the dye off my lamb skin; ie: apply very little at a time, and then really work around / work in what was left on the lamb skin.  I'm really happy with the final match.
     To seal the bags up, it was recommended to use Fiebing's Tan-Kote but after finding a YouTube video that compared the water resistant properties of several different products, I decided to try Fiebing's Acrylic Resolene on the bottom panel of the bags - problem is that the Acrylic Resolene gave the leather a shiny / luster appearance (was told Tan-Kote would also give similar result).  Although I did continue to use the Acrylic Resolene to seal up the all the bags' leather edges by using a Q-tip applicator, I finished the the bags' panels up with two coats of PENGUIN brand Water & Stain Repellent - It just sprays on, soaks right in and leaves a natural-looking appearance.  Pictures to follow:

That looks really good!  :2vrolijk_21: :2vrolijk_21:

I'm considering a set of those bags also, do you have yours set up as quick detach? Or are those just mounted on the end of the bolts with the backrest/rack quick detach only? From what I have found, the saddlebag supports 91017-10 are NOT compatible, is this correct?

i added quick release to my saddle bags. here are some pics. when the dealer installed these, I asked for them to be inside the bags. while doing it, he came to me and said if i wanted them inside, they would have to drill new hols in the bags. so i opted for them to be outside. overall i am pleased. they come off and on very easy. overall the look is fine and if i ever decide to put them inside, i can still do it.
