I'm starting to look at getting a set of soft saddlebags for my bike (likely something similar to the Nelson-Rigg CL-950). To date I've only ever ridden with a backpack, tank bag, or combination of the two.
Is there a noticeable difference in bike behaviour and handling when riding with saddlebags? For the sake of discussion let's assume the bags are fairly evenly loaded and correctly mounted.
Thanks for your comments.
