But, had the OP wanted to go to a Harley....well that would somehow be different???
I've got the H&B racks on my other bikes as well, so the bags just swap over. They really are good stuff. I think they took over from Krauser as the old Krausers I had on my Beemers fitted onto the H&B frames.

I own an '07 883 standard Sportster as well and it is a great bike, like all the modern Harleys. Uncannily smooth at 100-120km/h cruise, comfortable as an old chair, very well built, reliable as a rock, virtual nil maintenance and excellent fuel consumption. The only downside is the 3.3 gal tank and the difficulty fitting a larger tank to a fuel injected bike. I put Road King shocks, tacho and a few other goodies on mine and it is a very good touring bike. I like the Road Kings but don't have the garage space to fit one - big bikes.
