Looking to add some saddlebags for touring / camping, however, I do not want to leave them on all the time.
Anyone have any thoughts on saddlebag supports that clear the shocks but don’t look out of place without the bags.

I have a set of Tour Master saddle bags which I got years ago from Dennis Kirk, I think. They are heavy canvas with zippers, go over the back part of the seat, adjustable with Velcro and  straps holds them on the seat rail. have an extra short bungie cord wrapped around the back handle grab on the seat. Come on and off in a minute, the bottoms are aluminized canvas to protect from heat and they clear the pipes. didn't want to add framework for any bags. They don't leak, weren't cheap 20 years ago, but they are just the ticket for the Interceptor.

I like the SW Motech bags but they seem small.
I am getting the motoring exhausts so I will see how much deeper I can go with the bags.
I do not like saddle bags that just rest against the shocks. I prefer to have a frame for them to rest on.
As a last resort I might see if I can work with a friend to make my own stays. I will see. Thanks for the help everyone and ride safe.
