Saddlebag bottoms

I recently had two issues with my saddlebags on the same trip. I took the bike out for dinner and had some leftovers to bring home. The wife also asked me to pick up some milk on the way home. When I got home both jugs of milk had creases in them and one had a slow leak. The styrofoam take out box had two holes poked in the bottom. My guess is both issues were caused by the back side of the rubber pads on the underside of the bags (the "cones" in the bottom of the bags).

Anyone else ever had similar experience or have a solution?

This.... I bought saddlebag rugs and they come with a bottom cover that makes the bags flat. U can store stuff under them as well. I was tired of my plastic shields and glasses getting scratched up.

What year bike did you put them on? Flat or extended bags? Iíve been looking at these but havenít found anyone thatís tried them.

19 rgs with extended. But they make them for both. I'm impressed with the fit and quality. I got the charcoal black. Remove the bags. Take off the lid and lock clamps. They recommend locktite 200 spray adhesive. They say 2 cans to be safe. But I barely used a half can. Goes in in 2 pieces. Slightly pricey. But worth it imo

Do they go all the way to the bottom of the extended part under the false bottom?

Thank you. I was hoping the bottom would be done too. I doubt i can use the false bottom since i have speakers installed facing my wheels.
