That or try the saddle bags...They work great if you use the water proof clear storage bags. These fit right in and are 100% water proof

Love them, and NO...They are cloth and do not hit...Yea, your leg will touch it but won't even know. I took a stainless 1/4 20 bolt and a lock nut and with washers, secured it to the side of the plastic where it curls under on the side of the gas tank ( I know, that sounded confusing...I will post pics for you tomorrow ) so it doesn't flop around. It stays put.. Best bags without taking space on your racks..

I know...They scratched because they moved around and beat on the sides while you are trailering them because the only thing that holds them down is where you unscrew the gas cap and put it over the threads. If you secure the sides down, mine has not scratched in 3 years that it has been mounted. I even replaced the saddle bag 3 months ago and there were no scratches under the bag.. Just worked for me..

Yeah, I realized they were moving around too much but couldn't think of a way to hold them tight to the gas tank.I still have the saddle bags,but I'm hesitant to put them on my Foreman because of the scratching.I'd like to see you're set-up with bolting it down.

Here ya go.. Sorry bout the pics, it is hard to get the camera in the bag.. You should get the jist. Find the center of the bag at the bottom. I used a small punch to get the hole in the bag. I then marked where the hole was on the plastic. Drilled a hole and used stainless bolt and lock nut on the back. Bag stays still when traveling and while riding. NO SCRATches. You can see behind the bag and see no scratches. That is 3 years of riding...

What is nice is if you drill the hole where the plastic curves under, when you remove the bag..you can not see the hole...Tadaa....

When my husband got his saddle bag it had velcro tape with it. Just use it.

Velcro works great until the stickey stuff gets wet, and then it always came off of mine. Then I just bolted the @#&% thing... HeHeHe

Just an added thought he and I both have the saddle bags and when we do need to put our camera, cigs. money, wallet ect we put them in a ziplock baggie just for added protection!!! Usually he or I dont have water come that high so were pretty safe
