I am going to install my saddleman rigid mount bags today on my 93 1100. Any advice besides the obvious (take my time, measure etc etc)?

It helps to have a helper hold the first bag in position while you mark the bolt locations. Use bag #1 as the template for holes in bag #2 so they'll be even.

hehe, yeah. Good idea on the template. I would be the guy that would mount the bags at different heights :)

get a piece of card board, trace the shape of the bag on it then cut it out. You can make as many holes in the card board as you want and get the location of the bags perfect.

Bags are installed. Went well. No big surprises... Blinker bracket didn't fit my blinkers without some mods. I'll post pics tomorrow.
