    Stretched bags

    I'm thinking of adding stretched saddlebags to my bike. Any inconvenience to them like dragging in sharp corners and the likes.
    Thank you

    They will drag if you like to ride curves at anywhere near the limit of the bikes ground clearance. If you ever drop the bike at a standstill, the saddlebag guards will not protect them.

    If you drag them in a corner you would have laid it over beyond what you should have for a cruiser bike. I haven't drug mine yet

    There is a roundabout not far from where I live that I heard a small tic one time, something had touched. I'm thinking they would not be suitable for me. They do look nice.
    Thanks for the responses.

    I’ve got Top Shop Vipers. I assume that because they curve inward, I’ve never dragged. But, as hulkss above stated, rear crash bars are worthless.
