single saddle bag for meanStreak

Hello,

I have normal saddle bags. But for every day use I am looking for some thing less thick, only on one side. Any ideas ?

what would be the problem if I bought single sided saddle bag for Indian or Harley and try to put on meanStreak ?
I only have some one to make holes according to my existing brackets , right ?

Thank yoiu.

What do you think about tank bags? I'm looking at this magnetic tank bag and it has tons of great reviews.




Otherwise, I don't see any issues with a single side as long as it will mount, like you said, maybe with some modification to the bracket. Is there a place you can check it out, to see if it fits?

This is so not what I was looking for. But nonetheless its an awesome idea. I will seriously consider this tank bag.
I also found some very decent looking single saddle about only 3-4 inch thick(deep), which goes on with straps.
That too I am thinking about.
