OK, so it was a nice day here, almost 70 deegrees, sun shining, etc.
Did a bit of yard work then set up Wifey's CB200 with saddlebags.
Her major complaint about bikes is that there's no room for all her girlie crap.
I fabbed up a luggage rack for her (from a 175), but she did not like it.
So she selelcted these saddlebags from LeatherUp.
They're actually PVC and neoprene, not leather, about $69 as I recall.
One photo shows the velcro/zipper "quick" disconect of each side.
She loved that, she can just pack all her crap in them and then carrry one like a purse, I guess.

So she's very happy, and frankly I'm not even too embarrassed about it.
They ride well, no flopping, no interference to your legs or butt, weight kept low.
Loads of room to put unnecessary crap.
Very sturdy, well worth the money........

Cool -

Those look good and would look very nice on a larger bike like the 450 as well. When the time comes to do some old school touring, I'll have to look them up. Is there a strap to that goes around the shock to keep them flopping around? Is ther anything that keeps them (other than the shock)out of the rear wheel.

Nice job.

No strap, just the shock/frame/fender.
There's no chance of it getting into the wheel - I'd never do that on wifey's bike.
They don't flop, they're pretty sturdy.....

Yeah thats about the size of my 'special lady friends' handbag. What it contains is the stuff of science-fiction or something, I dont know, buts its VERY important! She hates me talking about her saddlebags...
