Low Rider S
Harley Davidson Dyna Low Rider S 2016 to 2017 - Fitting saddlebags to your low rider S will require you to adjust the indicators off your rear fender. The bike comes stock with a plastic license plate holder, most owners decide to install a tail tidy / turn signal relocation kit. Once the indicators are out of the way you will have enough space for medium size saddlebags. (17inch / 43cm end to end or 20inch / 51cm very back to very front).
The motorcycle saddlebags that look the best on the Low Rider S have a 45 degree cut out at the front so the bags can tuck just behind the shock absorber, with a curved lid that follows the line of the rear guard. Depending on the style your after a saddlebag with straps gives a classic vibe (model 110 / 110XL), where as a saddlebag with no straps provides a clean modern streamlined look (510L / 510L-Slim). Both saddlebags fit nicely inbetween the shock absorber and relocated turn signals, and the curve in the lids flow nicely with the rear guard.
If you going to use the saddlebags for every day use, you should take note of the width of the saddlebags, for example the 110 is approx 6inch wide and provides a sleek minimalist look, where as the 110XL is wider 8inch giving you a whole lot more storage capacity which is great for traveling. The wider bags are still acceptable looking on the low rider s; but if your going to be using the bags every day the minimlist slim bags would look and function better.
