I'm planning a trip from Albany, NY to Chicago in August and want to get bags to put on so I can carry my necessities. I was wondering what saddlebags are good and what ones not to touch. I don't want to spend a ton of money but am willing to in order to get a nice looking, quality set of bags. I drive a Retro and would appreciate any recommendations and pics if available on your ride. I would like to see how certain bags look from the back of the bike as I don't want them to stick out very far. Also, I don't want hard bags, or throw-overs. Suggestions?

Thanks.

To keep everything dry, be sure to put your things in a ziplock
bag then place them in your saddlebags.
