Adding saddle bag gaurds to 2018 RG

Not sure if this is the proper forum but, I just installed saddle bag gaurds on my 2018 Road glide. Has anyone done this as well and did they reuse the seat stops that are bolted to the frame were the top part of the saddle bag gaurd goes?

I installed guards. You do not reuse the seat stops.

Does the seat move at all?

No issues what so ever. I changed seat to LePera and still no issues. Also added saddle bag guard rails for a one off RG look.

Did this job a bit ago. Didn't reuse them and have had no issues.

Those seat stops are added to bikes that don't come with saddlebag guards to keep the seat from moving.

My RGU and my Road King did not come with those seat stops. When I added the guards to my '18 special I put the seat stops in a bin to put back on the bike one day. I needed the guards for my water bottle holder. Notice I put the bottle holder on the left side that rarely gets photographed since you always photograph a cruiser from the exhaust side.

Don't mean to hijack the thread; but; twowheeladdict, was the attached pic taken in "downtown" Lynchburg? Just curious.
