The panniers look very good and matches the TB very well.
How is the quality of the box? Also how strong are the metal clamps that fasten the panniers onto the bike?
Do they vibrate along with the bike?

Well, that's a tricky question because strength / durability of auto parts / accessories depend a great deal on the riding / driving behavior of the user . The boxes look to be fairly well built. The mounts are very well designed IMHO. The boxes are mounted in a semi-suspended fashion and the mounts provide fair amount of shock absorption. I believe that is going to save the boxes from cracking at the bolting points because of vibrations / jolts. I have been using them only for a month and half. Only time will tell the real story.

Nevertheless they look very good and hopefully if they last a good number of 4 to 5 years then they are worth it. Your bike does look very good soft tourer with all these upgrades. The LEDs as well.
How do they work in foggy/rainy conditions? Am assuming that in plain dark times they should be more than handy.

Thanks for your compliments. The auxiliary lights are not LEDs though, they are halogens. They work pretty well in low visibility conditions. But they are quite a drag on the battery and I have to switch them off at idling.

Sir thanks a lot for the detailed info. I did check bluegarage website and the prices quoted therein are exorbitant. Those pannier boxes you have are astronomically priced at 8k.

Fantastic...these days people use only LEDs and you put up the Halogens..Whats the rating though? With halogens you should not be too much worried about other conditions...
Whats the total wattage?

1. This is my 2005 Electra. I bought it in 2014 and used it for about a year.

2. Then a 2000 Bullet for the fun of point engine and gear vs. brake patterns. Used it for a short period in 2015.

3. I now ride a 2014 STD 350 UCE.

Time to pose!

My 2002 Electra crossed 1,10,000 kms recently , going strong

K&N conical filter in a intake pipe has made a world of a difference in ride ability due to revs building faster.

This one has very good quality and finish unlike the earlier plastic one (this one seems to be fiber glass). This one costed me Rs 1600 including fitting.
psurelia - can you please share the contact details of the maker of your custom windshield?

Long time lurker, first time poster here.
Here are my two REs. First is my 2008 Mach 350 which has been with me since new. There was a time early on during which I had managed to nearly ruin it with my teenage stupidity. All that has long since been rectified, and she's good as new!

Next is my new-to-me 2004 Electra 4S, which unknown to me had been lying at my friend's place for the last 5 years. His tenant ended up selling the bike to my mechanic, who in turn sold it to me. It has moved a total of 1.3 km from its usual parking spot.
I like to keep everything stock, at least cosmetically, so the only changes I plan to make here are adding new factory speedometers and amp meters, since the old ones are a bit worn and have water ingress, an Aashu Engineering Goldstar which I just ordered today and some Ladakh carriers.
