Saddlebag Supports; Perm. Install?

This might be a complete noob question, but here goes:

This is a pic of the supports on my 1300. Can these be used for a permanent saddlebag mount (no yoke)?

Those specific rails probably can't, but there are affordable hard bags available that come with brackets and can use the mounting holes in your fender.

You can find half way decent Mutazu bags on Ebay for under $200, and pretty nice hard bags from Vikingbags for around $300.

The word permanent means that they are not going to be taken off. For most rear wheel maintenance the bags have to be removed. The degree of difficulty depends on the mounting type. Your picture looks like brackets for "Throw-over Bags". Here are the bags I just installed on my 950. The center part goes under the passenger seat and stays on the bike. The bags have zippers at the top to provide easy removal for maintenance or to take them into your motel room at night. There is a clip on the back of the bag that attaches to the bracket similar to yours. The bracket prevents the bags from getting into moving part or acting as wings when you fly.

I'm always working very diligently to discover the obvious.

Thanks for the input folks. I ended up getting rid of the brackets (it looked like one of them had been in a collision of some sort = useless now) and buying a set of viking bags:



Thanks again!
