These bags are not so Continental. They're more cowboy, but I wanted to get some storage on the GT. I don't think the military style bags work on the GT. If the rain lets up, I'll run this rig down to the hardware store tomorrow for some Simple Green.

What's stopping the bags rubbing against the springs? Usually there's a frame of some sort holding saddlebags out and away from the bike a little bit.

I'll let them wear in. Then, if it's needed I'll add a backing layer on the inside of the bags.
