Default Saddlebag Guards

Greetings again gang.

So, I 'acquired' a nick to the lower side of one of my bags and decided that it's time I put guards in place to prevent further 'acquisitions'. I've done a fair amount of searching here for them, but to no avail.

If you have guards on your bags, or do not, but do know where I can obtain them, I'd really appreciate a link to a place that does sell them.

On a related topic; I picked up a touch-up kit from WitchDoctors to try a DIY paint repair. I have zero experience when it comes to doing work of this type on a bike, (or an auto for that matter). So if anyone has experience with paint touch-up kits, I would also really appreciate those tips as well.

Thanks in advance.

Fleabay and you may even try amazon, I scored a winshield for my XR from a dealer on there for 80% off the msrp back in the summer. As far as touch up goes I would let a professional do it because of the 2 or 3 layers of paint used on these bikes. I had a rig swerve off the shoulder in front of me down in GA and peppered me with gravel, taking 3 small chunks of paint off my left saddlebag. I tried touching it up but my sunset red has black underneath it the result was my touchup was more noticeable than just the missing paint.

Thanks, Ricz. I avoid FB like the plague, so I'll have to get my wife to check it out.

Thanks,TNXR. I'll check them out. As for the paint; that was my main concern, as well. Looks like I may have hit my son-in-law up, as he works in the paint and body business.
