Hey man, just wanted to know if these bags have like a secure lock or something where you can lock the things you have inside so nobody can steal them and also same thing but for the bag itself, you know like something that keeps them in place and no one can take them off just with the hands.

If you put the connecting straps under the seat the way the full instructions say to then you couldn't really take them off without removing the seat or cutting the straps.
As far as a way to lock them shut. No. not from what I can tell.

oh well so we probably shouldn't leave anything in the bags if we are leaving the bike parked.
Appreciate your answer tho! :icon_salut:

Well. The other option is that both bags have a shoulder strap that clips on and off so you can just pop it off and carry it like a messenger bag if you are inclined.

I am curious if there is a downloadable instruction sheet for these since mine came with none and the dealer I ordered them from said the same thing.

huh... that's odd. . mine came with pretty good factory instructions. .
If I get some time next week I will see if I can't bring them to my office and scan them for everyone.

I've toyed with the Classic variant of these but can't find a definitive answer as to whether they are waterproof, and also they're quite small. I think 17 litres? That's not a tonne of luggage room for a trip but I guess ample for commuting.

Do you have a picture of the straps you are talking about? In my kit each bag came with a shoulder strap for walking around with as well as a second strap. The second strap is for running between the seat and frame to attach them together.

Here's a photo of those 2 slim straps connected to the D-rings of the 2 saddle bags. Just wondering why there are 2 of them. Both with snaps on each end. This is apart from the 2 shoulder straps that came with the kit.

Yep. . I think its,either for having one over and one under or just for having a spare.

How does it look if you leave the mount on and take the bags off??
Can you put just one bag on one side on it, or does it have to be both bags?
BTW, those bags look awesome!

you can absolutely do one bag or the other.
it is no necessary to have both on at the same time if you don't want to.
I'll snap a picture of how they look with just the hangers on later tonight.
