I wrote a previous review on the ST bags here and forgot to address the paint issue. The description mentions a paint issue. Just wanted others to know, if there is a paint issue I could not see it on the bags I received. I have painted many cars so I kinda know a paint issue when I see it; I didn't see it. Certainly not a deal breaker.
I was looking for bags for my 2001 Honda Valkyrie. I found ABS but I really did not want thermoplastic bags. I saw several bags on the net that ran 300 and up. The material was not stated. When I emailed them the reply came back ABS. I thought I can get ABS for 60 bucks I thought, why pay 300 for the same material. I had done automotive work in a past life and really wanted fiberglass. I ran across the ST bags at A1. They were priced reasonably so I took a chance and pulled the trigger. I am very happy I did. They are excellent bags for the price. I also ordered the universal mounts which worked out great. I liked them because they use rubber grommets to mount the bags. I had read several reviews of other bags, particularly ABS cracking. I think the rubber grommets will prevent that. The bags took a day to mount but I think most people could mount them in an afternoon. A step bit really helps to drill the holes in the bag. I had marked all the holes in the mounts but wanted a hole 2.5 inches higher. I drilled them on the mounts then went to lunch. I came back and absentmindedly drilled the holes in the bag as marked, not 2.5 inches higher. I ended up with two extra holes. I really did not want to fill them as the grommets required a 1/2 inch hole. that was a big hole to fill. I called A1 told them what happened and they sent me two more grommets and bolts. I filled the holes by just adding the extra grommet and bolt. That was very cool of A1 and jeez I think I got the bolts the next day, Great customer service. So hey. I got some excellent fiberglass bags which is far superior to ABS and can be painted and repaired if needed down the road. The customer service was great. Overall very happy. I added an expanded review and process I used to mount them on the ValkyrieForum. If you are on the fence with these bags, goforit.
