Looks good!, I considered the 23’s for my 14 V2 but decided on the SH35s, I like mine so far.

The white lids are actually covers over the stock black lids. A $45 premium

I just purchased the same bags less than a month ago.

They may be even more than $45, most retailers carry the black ones for $225 with free shipping Shad is the only one that had white (for $270) and the mounting system but shipping was pricey...

I had a hard time paying that much extra for a $3 accessory.

I'm a little jelly, not gonna lie.

Looks great. Does it impact your ride negatively vs the wind at highway speeds?

Not at all, the biggest difference is how I get on the bike.
I stumbled on this thread while searching out tank bags. Yes I know it's not a current discussion, but having just bought a set, wanted to opine on what Super trooper said. The SH23 are great, but I too had to relearn how to mount/dismount the bike. Using the the lazy leg approach (swinging just high enough to clear the seat) like I normally do gets my foot caught on the top of the panniers. I have to change the angle a little on mount/dismount, but once I was used to it, wasn't a big deal. Wife likes them. She says the fact that the bags are there makes her feel more secure.

Can't help you with the Glee width but here they are on the CB500x

I will add my voice to approval on the Shad 23. They are very light, top load and when not mounted the P3 mounting just disappears. The key works smoothly. I scrape my boot as well.
I think them very good value for money.
