I put a leather bag on my front forks just below the headlight - looks AWESOME...one problem. I didn't realize the distance the front shocks traveled and was disappointed when I saw that the bottom of the bag work teh top coat and first paint layer off of the top of my fender. Any suggestions - I would like to keep the bag - I can't believe that I am the only person to try this. I considered putting a small playing card size chrome plate on top of the fender to protect it and dress it up alittle at the same time.

Hey Sammy, Dunno that you would want to stop the fork travel. One location I have seen for the bag is on the front down tubes (frame tubes) below the oil filter. I have mine hanging off the throttle side rear fender stay. It should be visable in one of the PICS I have posted.

Later,

I had originally thought about putting it there - but then looked immediately at the "kickup" from the front as being a bad thing on a leather bag. The chrome plate would actually be epoxied to the fender itself but would not limit the fork travel at all. It would travel with the forks. I thought the bag looked good on the front - I just can't imagine I am the first to try it and then say "oh ****".

yea it does get dirty but I just wash it off with the rest of the bike.Putting the bag below the headlight may not give the forks enough room to bottom out.
