Re: Left Saddle bag leaking????

Was it on the side stand? Mine sits on the side stand when I am at work and gets rained on regularly. When I open the left case there is water puddled in the middle of the folded down lidbut the case contents are dry. I finally deduced that while the seals work fine while the case is closed water puddles on top of the case because it is leaned to the left. When you open the case it runs down the inside of the lid. When you close it it runs out the bottom of the lid without getting anything wet.
