If you envision yourself on the back of your trusted Harley, cruising gently down Route 66, the sun shining, the wind cooling your face against the burning sun overhead, you probably will also be envisioning yourself riding a bagger motorcycle as opposed to a smaller vehicle, because that is what cruisers are all about. Saddlebags are a biker’s best friend and for many, they are almost literally worth their weight in gold. The great thing about saddlebags, is that there are so many different styles to choose from, although lately, it is hard bags, stretched hard bags for road king bikes, for example, that have really been grabbing the attention of keen motorcyclists from all over the globe. You see, as of late, hard saddlebags have undergone somewhat of a transformation, and are now more desirable, durable, and practical than ever before, which is why bikers are finding themselves gravitating more towards hard bags, instead of soft leather saddlebags. If you’re looking for a change and wish to equip your Harley with a set of saddlebags, here’s a look at a few reasons why you may want to consider choosing hard bags as opposed to soft bags.

Less maintenance – Whilst soft leather saddlebags do indeed look very desirable, and are still very popular, it is sadly, a bit of a pain in the butt having to constantly care for and maintain them. With leather saddlebags, not only are they tougher to attach, you also have to carefully clean the leather using special materials and cleaning solutions, as well as protect them from the elements. Leather does not do very well in extreme heat, or in wet conditions, so unless you plan on doing all of your riding on a cool, dry, and cloudy day, again, you need to treat the leather to ensure it is well prepared. With stretched hard bags for road king motorcycles however, you don’t have to worry about any of the above, as they basically just maintain themselves. You will need to wash them regularly with soapy water, but other than that, that’s pretty much it in terms of maintenance.

More secure – Another great benefit of hard saddlebags is that they are more secure than soft leather saddlebags. A thief could easily rip open soft saddlebags with a sharp object, and steal the contents in a matter of seconds, yet getting into hard saddlebags would take much longer, would be much louder, and would be much harder as well.

Easily detached – Another fantastic benefit associated with hard saddlebags, is the fact that they can easily be detached from the motorcycle and are light weight and easy to carry around with you wherever you go. This is great for when you have valuables inside them and you aren’t comfortable with leaving them unattended with your bike.

If you’re looking to install hard saddlebags onto your Harley, take a look at the vast selection of stretched hard bags for road king bikes, as well as the many other hard saddlebags offered by Bodyparts USA, who are fast-becoming the number one aftermarket specialist in all of the US.
