I just installed a sissy bar today and I will be getting my US Saddlebags next week. The sissy bar uses the front two bolts to mount to the fender strut, and the saddlebags use the front and back holes. I realize I will have to drill through the sissy bar mount to use the rear hole, thats not a hug deal. It does although seem to me like I will have a spacer issue.

My question: What have you guys done to mount the saddlebags and sissy bar?

Do I mount the sissy bar closest to the bike using the supplied Honda spacers and just mount the saddlebags on the outside of that?

I used some flat aluminium plate to assist in the backing and mounting of my bags. You can locate some bushings at your local hardware store, I do beleive they are reffered to as bronze bushings, I have seen them in the specialty bins at Home Depot, Lowes, and Ace Hardware. They come in a variety of diameters and lengths. Check my photobucket.
