New to the forum

Hey Folks, Just took delivery of a "new" demo today from a dealer in PA. Nice people and competitive price.
Very happy with the bike's performance, but there's a hitch. When the bike was rolled out, the saddlebags were purple! The salesman said this is very common; it has happened with all the bikes he's sold.
Has this been your experience as well - purple saddlebags?

Thanks for your input, insight and comments.

Jim Ford

To much sun messes up the bags is my guess. I leave mine in the house until I need them. I wonder if there is something we could spray on them to protect them. Maybe sunscreen... I bet it's the UV that changes them. Welcome aboard!!!

They should replace the bags under warranty, lots of us have talked about uv sprays for patio furniture and so on but so far anything that works gives the bags a hazy white look and that's not attractive either..
