Last Friday I hit a big pothole out east of Green River Ut. at 45 mph and I found out why in the owners manual that there is a 22 lb weight limit in those saddlebags. I was well over 22 lbs. The mounting bracket broke and the saddlebag took flight. Luckily I did not bend the wheels or do any other [ that I have found so far anyway] damage. Now I'm looking for a new Rt. saddle bag mounting bracket!
