I guess the first question I would ask in response to your query is what kind of saddlebags did you mount? Are they leather or hard bags such as those made by Leatherlyke or Corbin or even Tsukayu?mpd918 said:I work for Marysville P.D. and we just purchased a 2005 VTX1800N. It has been fully dressed for patrol use. I installed some hardbags and now need to find some saddlebag crash bars. Any thoughts as to what might work or who would make something for this?
