I got up yesterday morning to the sound of my wife dropping something heavy in the kitchen. I ran in there and found her trying to pickup a big fat box off the floor. The label had "LeatherUp" all over it. She gave up trying to hide it and just handed it to me saying "Merry Christmas".
I opened the box and found a nice big pair of saddle bags! Unable to contain myself I had to put them on right then. I went out and retreived my standoff bolts I had made for my other bags and 1/2 hour later I had hard mounted weather proof bags!
I think they look a lot better than the old ones I had on there. Wider and longer.
They mounted right up tight to the fender (as tight as I want them).
I've had things showing up on the front porch and in the mailbox. Make a note next year, to save on surprise factor, have the things I've ordered delivered to my work. That way the wife doesn't go out and find the 'Rototiller parts' I ordered and I don't go out and find the 'Vacuum sweeper' parts SHE ordered.
She gave me a list, I bought from it and several other things while I was in the right neighborhood.
Thanks everyone, I think she "done good!"
I've got her a gift for Christmas (a new Cell phone because hers was dying) so I gave it to her when her old phone croaked a week ago. I told her Merry Christmas then. I guess she was returning the favor.
The bags have a flap all around plus a flap on the inside. Pretty well water proof. (My old bags used to gather water by the inch). Ever wring out your Registration?
