Re: Saddlebags & brackets & highway bars
What makes up the best bag/bracket combo depends a lot on what you are looking for. Is style or economy important? Do you need something that you can lock? Do the bags need to be easily removable? Do you want hard, soft, or leather bags? I have Fieldsheer bags (made of Cordura nylon) with the Kawasaki saddlebag support on my bike. I would really prefer hard, locking bags, but the only ones I was able to find were made by Leatherlyke and are pretty expensive.
Highway bars depend a bit on whether or not you add an engine guard, and if you do add a guard what make it is. The highway bars may attach to the guard or be an entirely separate piece.
