This was the only damage to the bag from having my motorcycle squeezed between a semi and a truck. It was caught on the semi’s tire while traveling about 50 mph. It saved me from serious injuries. The corner protection did what it was designed for. My safety. I believe that if I had hard cases I would have lost control.
This how well these bags work I caught my right bag on a semi wheel and the corner piece peeled back. Because the bag was semi soft the damage was minor compared to hard cases. Lone Rider sent out the corner protection and in a few minutes I was up and riding. The bags never lost there function and nothing in the bag was damaged.
First, the great, Anna with customer service. Second, would be better to come with the internal rubber "bracket". If the corner brackets are missing, the screws likely ripped through the rubber brackets, requiring replacement also. I bought a used bike that had been dropped and had the corner bumpers torn off. Also missing from inside the bags was the rubber brackets the screws go through. Lastly, there are holes in the bag holding the corner bumpers likely for packing and shipping. Well, a screw fell out of the hole prior to shipping. Anna came through sending out replacement screws and brackets.
Probably the best paniers you can get from today’s market. No regrets to made this choice.
