"As every Bagger owner will tell you without a trace of all-consuming regret, "It's a great bike for cruising". Which is another way of saying "It's a great bike for not going anywhere quickly or efficiently". So deep into grandpa chic it comes full circle and achieves gangland charm, this is the bike for you if you can't make up your mind and don't care how you look in the meantime."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Western Motorcycle Company Bagger is a motorcycle featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Bagger's design is very similar to the Freeway, only featuring minor changes to its bodywork. The standard appearance seems to be based on the 2013 Harley Davidson Touring Road Glide Custom, albeit with much smaller and basic batwing fairing and a gas tank that instead resembles those used by Victory Motorcycles. The Bagger uses PCJ-600 light textures.

The body of the Bagger is highly customizable, giving it a wide variety of possible appearances, albeit any found on the road will be completely stock. It also shares the tank with the Nightblade and the seats and rear fender with the Wolfsbane.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Bagger is, overall, fairly underwhelming. Its acceleration lags behind other motorcycles, even when fully upgraded, and is one of two motorcycles that, when fully upgraded, does not max out the acceleration stat (the other being the Faggio). Top speed is reasonable, but not able to keep up with virtually any other motorcycle. The cornering radius is reasonably wide, and usually requires braking of some amount. This motorcycle is, overall, a good touring motorcycle and good for cruising as it is smooth and easy to control, but feels underpowered compared to other motorcycles.

The Bagger's engine sound is the same as that used by choppers and cruisers, such as the Police Bike and is similar to that used on the Gargoyle and its Deathbike variants.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto V

Notable Owners


Grand Theft Auto V

  • Spawns at Franklin's safehouse after the mission Repossession and is prominently seen when switching to him (except if he was driving a different vehicle).
  • Occasionally spawns on the highway near Vespucci Beach.
  • Spawns parked next to an Hexer in the northwestern side of Stab City. (Both are inside the yard to the left of the abandoned van.)
  • Sometimes randomly spawns on the streets of Los Santos.
  • Rarely spawns in Vinewood Hills.
  • Very rarely spawns on Clinton Avenue, near Pitchers.
  • If starting a mission as Franklin at his safehouse in Strawberry while on his Bagger, another might spawn near his safehouse.

Grand Theft Auto Online



  • The motorcycle's name "Bagger" is a real life bike made by Harley Davidson and looks extremely similar to the Bagger in the game.
  • The default radio stations for Bagger are Radio Los Santos, West Coast Classics and The Lab.
  • The Bagger is implied to be one of the motorcycles used by The Lost MC, although it is not a chopper (the proof of it being a gang motorcycle is taken from Underbelly of Paradise TV show in-game, where it is seen being used by The Lost MC members). This is confirmed by its occasional spawn location in Stab City.
  • Fitting the correct modifications on the Bagger will make it resemble the GTA IV Freeway, albeit having two headlights not one.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • If the player modifies Franklin's Bagger it will still have the mods whenever the player encounters it again, along with his Buffalo S. This also happens with Michael's Tailgater and Premier, Trevor's Bodhi, Tracey's Issi, and Amanda's Sentinel.
  • If the player manages to access Beeker's Garage in Paleto Bay on foot, and walks into the small office area on the left of the garage, a manual[1] for the Bagger can be seen which erroneously sports a Principe logo rather than a Western one. This was most likely a designer oversight.
  • This is one of three backup personal vehicles in GTA V that spawn on the street. The other two are the Sentinel and the Issi.
  • In Los Santos Customs, the Bagger can have either the leather Saddle Bags or no Saddle Bags at all, and if either are fitted, it will have no license plate, which makes it deemed illegal for the road.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • For anyone who views Franklin or their Online Garage on the Social Club, it will show a Bagger as a display for motorcycles. Upgrades installed will remain, unless changed.
  • After the Bikers update, the crew emblem was moved from the top of the tank to the sides of the fairing, showing up (often distorted) on the upper forks when the fairing is removed.
  • In the job room of a clubhouse, the player can see a Bagger in a picture[2] near the notice board that has a sissy bar which cannot be modified on the Bagger in the game. It is most likely a beta version.
