"Drooping" soft saddlebags...
Over the years I've read a few posts asking if anyone has a solution to the dreaded saddlebag "droop". My Vs have the saddlebag hard-support that a lister from central AZ made and sold a few years back, but my 'bags (FIELDSHEER) STILL droop, seemingly from the hard supports in them 'folding', but I have found a solution - and here it is, with pics!
Get a belt, or webbing with plastic ends that 'snap' together (mine are about 42" overall length), and attach it through the handles of the bags and tighten it OVER your seat as necessary to stop the droop. (The belt in these pics cost all of $2!)
Like how Ed solved the problem with the drooping bags. So i gave it a shot but didn't want any straps over the seat. So i got a strap off of one of the sets of bike luggage and set it up like Ed but put the strap under the seat. Well the strap has a plastic buckle so it was a pain getting the seat on and once on the mid to rear of the seat was a little higher because of the buckle.So i had a little foward slide on this last ride i was on. Thought about it some but still didn't want anything over the seat, So went to Harbour Freight and got some heavy duty zip ties. Put the seat how i wanted then zip tied it up used 2 ties just for the heck of it. Seat went on easy just need to adjust a little the right is a smidge high just need to level them up.
