Saddlebag damper

I've now seen them on a few different pics/videos. My '12 Ness doesn't have them so I researched a little. Victory stopped with the 2010's.

Anyone with insight as so why? I think they'd be great to have since when I push the release button the door flops open up to the cable stops and bounces a few times.

They did away with them to save space and weight.

Curious. What space? They're rear of the storage compartment. And what? 5 oz ea? . I'm sure it was an economic decision too.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Got to love a good sense of humor! I consider myself dampered. Oh what a good dampering it is too!
