Re: lt Best Bags

Andromeda had the BMW liners-that-must-have-been-made-of-gold, they looked good and fitted the saddlebags pretty well. As they were also totaled, Trinity has the CeeBaileys set that cost 1/4 of the price and do the job perfectly.

Pack safe

Re: lt Best Bags

Kathy's bag liners are great; extremely well made, very durable, reasonably priced and a great fit to the LT top case and saddlebags. You can get them through Bob's BMW.

Re: lt Best Bags

I found two nylon bags I had hidden away and they work great. Not pretty but they were cheap and are so flexible they fit into all the nooks and crannies of the saddlebags and fold into their own pocket when not needed.

And the great thing about them is you can stuff them as much as you want and you'll know they will still fit in your cases. I have 4 Kathy's bags. We keep the extra rain gear in the luggage rack bag. They work great for us.

Just Go

I looked at several options, but went with Kathy's Journey liners as I wanted something simple and inexpensive. They were about the least costly liners I found and so far they have held up well and fit nicely.

Re: lt Best Bags

Coleman nylon bags at Wally World fold into their own pocket when not in use , good strap system , are tough and cheap and can be crammed into just about any space.
