I'd like to see those also. I bought a set but won't be putting them on till the snow melts. Just to **** cold in the garage right now.

Jared, I just installed (11/19/08) LeatherLyke Cross Country Saddlebags on my 07 900 Classic (also silver) and have had some concern regarding the proximity of the backing plates and nuts being very close to the rear tire. I'd say there is about an inch + - clearance on each side of tire. I did use the washers to keep the plates vertical. Since you have had them on longer what is your experience and are they as colse as mine to the tire. Thanks Eric

I just added a bunch of pics to my photobucket account. Check them out. They might help. I'm not sure if I installed them correctly or not. I've had them on for almost a year and haven't had any problems.
