Saddlebags without brackets

Hey,

I used to have some triumph leather saddlebags, but I hate the brackets and I was too lazy to take them off

I'd like some soft bags I can throw over the seat which don't need brackets and ideally don't cost too much.

I've heard mixed reviews about which ones can be used and which ones get caught up in the wheel. Can anyone confirm?

I have these:

They don't rub on the rear wheel, attach and detach easily and look good on my T100 Black.

I use Cortech Saddlebags, easy on, just as easy off. With the tail bag they will hold enough stuff for a week.

These?

Do you remove the seat and span them across, or do you use it on top of the seat?

I have the previous model of those. I just lay them across the top of the seat. If you also use the tailbag that will hold them down.

Ride safe,

Quentin

I've had Cortech 2.0 saddlebags on for a couple years. I just got the tailbag. They are great.

+1 on the Cortechs. I have had my set for many years. No problems without a rack even mounting them under the seat. One negative is if mounted far enough forward to lay on the shock then your passenger will not have access to the pegs. This is the only reason I went with classic bags/supports. If you mount over the seat it may not be an issue.

I use the Tourmaster Select Saddlebags and tailbag. They work great. I put the straps under the seat for the saddlebags. The shape of them compliment the bike perfectly I think and the quality is fantastic.

Not sure if these will suit you, but they are waterproof, and no frame required,.... and just throw them over your seat.

I use these, plus a another 30ltr dry bag on my seat for extended trips away. Cannot fault the Speed Bags.
