Hey, I'm a new guy to this group. Bought an '02 919 last summer. Love it. It was too long between my last bike and now. Bought a '74 Z1 in 1975 and sold it two years later. Moved back to civilization and bought a '77 KZ in 1978. Had to sell it in '86. Work and kids prevented owning a bike till last year. I told my (ex-)wife once that she didn't have to worry about me and another woman, just me and a motorcycle. Well honey. my love affair has resumed.
I've got some questions about saddle bags. Found a 2002 or 03 link describing a pair of Chase Harper bags, but don't know if they're still available. It might have been posted on this forum. The write-up showed two styles; one smaller and firm looking, the other, larger and somewhat sagging. No, I'm not confusing these with what you're now thinking of...just interested in something that will hold up to the heat of the stock cans.
