    Thanks for the help. The bike has an assembled title anyway so there is no reason to keep it stock and I'm tired of dealing with the issues that come with leather bags. I'm going to the J & P catalog right now.

    Leather does have lots of issues, especially if you live in wet cold or hot humid climates where they do not dry properly and lose their finish over time. "Pleather" is a viable alternative, and some re-create the rough and ready look quite nicely, have many of the finishes, and features of the expensive ones, even use "clean" mounting/dismounting schemes that do not detract from the looks of the bike. Here is a the list of saddlebag manufacturers, a lot of stuff here...!
