Got my cycle case saddle bags last week..$69...used them for 1st time today..did a little shopping...carried 15, 1 liter flavored water bottles and a few other little things home...took some pics with my cellphone here at work since i didnt have time to take them off before I had to go in

they hang the way the bike slopes at the rear..i suppose if i had the velcro fasteners over the seat they would sit up straighter but higher....if i paid a hundred dollars more but they fastened the exact same way..would they hang differently just because they cost more SAC? I guess if there was some sort of bracket underneath that kept em pushed out at the bottom they would hang straighter too.

and a passenger can still ride..they sit back far enough not to be in the way of their legs..just might be a little awkward getting on and off

Careful; he's a sensitive soul, easily upset by Thailand boys.
I can take criticism mikey..even sarcasm..what i cant take is a know it all that has nothing better to do than troll my every post and laden it with a bunch of meaningless dribble because they are obviously drunk or something and thinks its actually witty banter instead..

so yes..i was aware they "HUNG FUNNY" and being my 1st saddle bags ever..its possible i dont have them on the right way since they didnt come with instruction nor does the website...maybe someone who has more knowledge about it than me can add some constructive criticism or tip or two


edit..there..i adjusted the bags..hope this is more satisfactory

It doesn't really matter as long as they are functional. But someone left a post about a rig they made as stays for their saddle bags to keep them from sagging under the fender.

It was a piece of plastic pipe stuck on to the pointy part of the footrest bracket and went up to the tail light. He used a wire spring piece at the end to tie on to an identical pipe on the other side. Seemed like it would work pretty well, I don't know where it is, you would just have to search for it.

did some searching and found the same principle suggested on a couple other sportbike websites..the pipe doesnt really need to be so long that it goes to the tail light..would only need a few inches of pipe to actually go behind the bottom of the bag to keep it from sagging inward..so about a foot or so in length will work i think..and it could slip onto the upright foot peg rather than the pointy part of the footrest..either one..

a pipe that small would even fit inside the bags when im not using them so they will always be there when im ready to put them on....I will get some pvc pipe and and give it a try when i have some time..thanks for reminding of that thread :)

EDIT: heres that old thread if anyones intersted..Carbonado was nice enough to add pics as well
