Motorcycle accessories come in all shapes and sizes, but one that could be especially useful is a saddlebag. Back in the old days, those who rode horses would put these saddlebags over their horse’s backs so they could carry their gear with them, as well as their ammunition. Now, bikers use saddlebags in the same way, minus the ammunition. Saddlebags are great for adding extra storage to your motorcycle.
Before you can start using your saddlebags for storage, however, you need to be sure they are properly installed on your bike. Check if you have passenger foot pegs that you can attach a mounting strap to. If you do, then your saddlebags can be easily attached. Quick-release straps are the best kind to use. You want your bags secure so that they do not move up and down or side-to-side. Once you have the saddlebags sitting on your motorcycle, you need to adjust all your straps so they fit snuggly to the shape of your bike. Be sure they are a few inches away from your exhaust, so they do not get burned. You can watch a tutorial video on Youtube to see exactly how the bags are installed.
These saddlebags are great motorcycle accessories to have, giving you plenty of storage – especially for those long motorcycle rides. Everything you need will fit in them easily, such as extra clothes, gear, accessories, food, and whatever other items you may require on a long journey. If you do not already have a saddlebag attached to your bike, it is time to get one now. It is always nice to have additional space to put things if need be.
