Probably not much use to you in the US, but I got a pair of Frank Thomas leather saddlebags:I’m having the hardest time finding saddlebags to fit my SCR. I have a set of Adventure Spec Magadan bags and they are way too big. I got some Chase Harper Phoenix bags and they will be fine around town but probably not great for traveling. For the folks with the Fehling supports, what are you using? Leather bags? Any bags that fit under the seat?
Frank Thomas Leather Pannier - Cargo Luggage - Collection
Frank Thomas have been around for ages in the U.K., and have gone in and out of business about 10 times (a bit like Indian!! :laugh.
They’re a lovely fit though, look great on the bike - really suit it - and the ‘choke’ (center-bit) just about lies comfortably under the seat. You have to do a bit of aligning, but the bags zip off, so it can stay on the bike once fitted. I did have to remove the two rear rubber bungs from underneath the seat before fitting it once. Easily done though.
If you ever got caught in a downpour though, your stuff is going to get wet!! :grin2:
