Am I supposed to buy some kind of bracket to mount leather saddle bags?

I want to keep them streight and not hit the wheels.

New GL1100 owner, so I need advise.

What are the best inexpensive bags to get for my bike?



Best Regards,
Frank

Should lace together than you'll have to take the seat off and they go under it.

Quite easy.

Thanks,

I don't have to worry about a bracket?

My friend put a bolt on his GL1100 to push the bags out.

To keep them from going into the rear wheel install a pair of saddlebag guards. Ebay has a bunch that can be modified to fit your bike.
