Daryl Dixon’s Chopper Had a Sick Set of Saddlebags.

We know it was really his brother Merle who picked out these Willie & Max Saddlebags. But it’s still a thrill.

It’s been a hot minute since Daryl Dixon’s badass ride from the early seasons of The Walking Dead sent chopper fans a-flutter. The famous bike inspired millions of internet searches from folks who wanted all the details about the vintage Triumph chopper, which had once belonged to Daryl’s brother Merle. Now we are just days away from the premiere of The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon | Daryl’s Journey and it’s bringing back our nostalgia for all things TWD.

What are the Saddlebags on Daryl Dixon’s Triumph Chopper in The Walking Dead?

But one question remains unanswered for many – who made the killer vintage-look saddlebags that were mounted to Daryl’s bike on The Walking Dead? The pictures don’t lie… these bags are none other than our very own Willie & Max Braided Series Straight Saddlebags. If you look really closely at the photo above, you can even see the little yellow Willie & Max tag on the side that makes it a dead giveaway (pun intended).

We agree that these Willie & Max bags were an inspired choice for the post-apocalyptic vibe of the show.

  1. Classic styling: The big ol’ buckles and braided trim have a truly timeless look that matches not only Merle’s chopper but the overall look and feel of the show.
  2. Heritage: We’re not sure when that chopper was created within the show’s timeline, but Willie & Max saddlebags have been made in the USA since the 20th century.
  3. Ample storage: A post-apocalyptic lifestyle means you’d better have a way to tote your food and supplies when you’re on the move. These straight saddlebags have lots of room for whatever you need for day trips or avoiding hordes of the undead.

So whether you’re killing zombies with a crossbow, or just taking a ride before settling in to enjoy the latest installment of The Walking Dead dynasty, remember to check out all our vintage-style saddlebags from Willie & Max at dowcopowersports.com.
