    I managed to pick up a pair of used saddle bags made by: Leather Pros.

    They were very helpful even though they didn't have to be. When I bought them, the previous owner sold the attachment hardware with the bike. Garry at LP got the hardware out to me in a reasonable amount of time, and for a good price.

    Leather exterior with ABS reinforcement inside. Lockable and expandable.[​IMG]

    This pair is part of their #LP3200 series, it should do all I need it to do.

    Straps over top of bag might come in handy, it's part of the design.[​IMG]

    Interior detail shows lever locking mechanism. A flap of material covers this up when you're using bags. One lever on each side can be padlocked from the inside. A light touch is all that's required to install and remove bags[​IMG]

    This is what's left when bags are off. It took longer to collect the tools ( rachet, Torx drive, hex drive, and blue Loctite ) than it did to do the install.[​IMG]

    There are a couple more pictures with a few more details here: Leather Pros Saddle Bags

    Cheers!

    Thank You both! There are a couple of details I left out, like how the manufacturer shows someone standing on the mounted bags.

    I'm not ready to try that, however, I do recommend these bags in case you hadn't got that already.

    Cheers!

    I had to laugh at this, isn't that the way it usually goes when something is really good. Nice addition!

    Many times I'll wait for enough projects to stack up before I dig out the tools. Saddle bags couldn't wait!

    Your saddle bags must be HUGE! Got Pictures?

    I know, simple but smart! You are welcome!

    Uh, Um, Yeah, I knew that, right under your name... if I had only thought to look there (I didn't). Duh! Do you have any complaints about your bags, anything you would change? Other members here might want to know.

    Cheers!
