Getting ready for a 3 week road trip into Canada. This is first time I will be using my 1300 Tour for a long trip and I am wondering how water tight the saddlebags are. All my previous bikes were full fledged touring bikes so leaking bags has never been and issue, but not too sure of the sealing on these. I would appreciate comments to see if I have to pack everything in plastic.

The bags on the 1300 DeLuxe haven't leaked yet...

You will get a small amount of leaking through where the push button latch release and lock are on the top. Other then that they are good.
The bottom of the bags actually have some small hidden holes in the bottom to let water out if I remember correctly.
