Although this class is usually defined by soft bags, we’ve elected to include the Montana even though it has hard, locking bags. Why? Well, since the bags are covered with leather and offer a similar level of weather protection to traditional soft leather bags, we feel the Montana’s luggage resides closer to the leather set than true hard baggers. The storage space offered by these bags is relatively small. Unloading the bike is as simple as opening the bags and throwing a latch. The bags even feature handles. The spiffy chromed saddlebag stays adorn the fender when it’s uncovered.
