5 Simple Tips to Pick the Best Motorcycle Saddle Bags

February 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 89

While bikes make a smart and quick ride, they face a big disadvantage: the lack of storage space.However, thanks to motorcycle saddle bags, this is no longer an issue. If you are thinking of buying a saddlebag, the following quick tips will help your shopping spree be easier than you think.

1. While you are on the lookout for a quality motorcycle saddle bag, you will come across two basic types: Bolt-on and Throw-over. It is best to go for bolt-on types because they come with a complete set of accessories, such as mounting equipment, to secure the bag and protect you on the road. However, if your bike has enough space and you are looking for an easy-to-install bag, you can go for the throw-over type which requires fastening with strings.

2. As you contemplate buying motorcycle saddle bags, you should never compromise on their material's quality. While there is a large variety of these bags, it is best that you go for nylon or leather because these materials are secure, durable and of very quality. If one is to be chosen out of these two, pick leather as it is long-lasting and weather-resistant.

3. Next up is the space of your future motorcycle bags. In order to carry motorcycle tools, your water bottle, refreshment items, helmet, tool kit and other paraphernalia, you need ample space and maybe a few organizing compartments. So, make sure you choose a spacious saddle bag that won't cramp your style or look clumsy on your bike.

4. While purchasing motorcycle saddle bags, never overlook the convenience factor. Since these bags come in a variety of styles, colors and types, make sure you choose the one that goes best with your vehicle. Some of the bags come with a lot of tricky straps and strings that might turn out to be a hassle for you. Always browse through the variety before you make the final purchase. It is sometimes better to spend more time inspecting the product instead of regretting buying it later on.

5. Last but hardly the least, the price of motorcycle saddle bags. It is recommended that you search about the item and its potential price online before finalizing the deal. Do not be lured by the low price of the item because you might have to compromise on its quality. Similarly, do not spend too much on a bag you aren't completely sure about.

Remember these five tips and you will easily have the perfect motorcycle saddle bags for your bike.
