They work as expected, especially when the Mrs. tends to kick the saddlebags while climbing on board. Stay on while traveling at interstate speeds(70+) Only problem with them, is trying to keep the scratches off of them. You also need to be careful of getting any kind of dirt/sand under them that would act like sandpaper on your painted saddlebag. Had them on my bike when new for 6 mos. but took them off.
