I love my leather saddle bags BUT they also do my head in.
I have four straps on each one and undoing them and then doing them up again just seems a bit to much like a major operation, so I popped in to my local biker leather workshop.
What the nice lady did was to leave the buckles in place but to detach them at the top and put on poppers instead & now I can undo and re-do them up in the same time as I could have undone one before and nobody would ever know the difference.
She guaranteed that they would not come undone even at 100mph so I thought I would put them to the test and she was right, solid as a rock!

Glad you like it *Saddle Bags Strap Mod ............................ 2010 Suzuki C800 * 184121345
The idea for the mod came out of desperation. I bought the saddle bags then never ever used them because it did my head in with all those straps.
Now I use them all the time and find them really useful

Like the bags. What size ate they please Dave? Found some 15.5x10x6 in. Would they be big enough?
