same here....except I bought the cover. Never washed it, but I take off my saddlebags once a month when I want to clean it up throughly.W9VD said:Mine came with rain covers. I rarely wash my bike, I use Honda spray cleaner on everything.
Not a real problem to remove the hondaline bags. Each bag has 4 allen head bolts with a special washer. Yea, there's no quick release. But it only takes a minute to empty out each bag and unscrew the 8 screws. I've done it hundreds of times.moooboy said:How hard is it to remove hondaline leather bags?I am waiting for my mounting brackets to arrive.I live 1.5 miles down a gravel/dirt road so it needs to be washed often
Yep, even though mine have a zipper for easy removal in 5 seconds.VTX Candy Red said:I wash the bags with the bike! It will not hurt them a bit! 8)
