    I picked up a cool addition for anyone with hard bags at the Lone Star Rally last weekend.
    They are called Bagger Buds, basically it's 4 tethers that attach your bail pin to the inside of your saddlebags when releasing bags. keeps em' from dropping in the bag, or possibly losing them. I think they were $20. Put em' on last night, quick & pretty clever. I know some
    Harley shops carry them, or find them online. cheers.

    Thanks for the link. I thought about getting these handy little items. They cost $19.95 and you get a 25% discount if you enter GIFT as the coupon code. Well that code doesn't work and when I went to checkout, these are the shipping costs for a $20 item:

    UPS Next Day Air® Early A.M.® - 1 day(s) ($88.80)
    UPS 2nd Day Air® - 2 day(s) ($23.22)
    UPS 3 Day SelectSM - 3 day(s) ($18.30)
    UPS Ground ($13.20)
    UPS Next Day Air® - 1 day(s) ($55.65)
    UPS Next Day Air Saver® - 1 day(s) ($51.40)

    I didn't think losing the bail pins was an issue. I just let my fall into the bags and retrieve them when I need to. I do like the adhesive legs for the bottom.
