Folks may want to check that their Saddlebag Latch Screws are snug and tight.

Found a screw laying in the right saddlebag. There are front and rear bag latches along the top edge of each saddlebag. These appear to be attached by 2 screws installed vertically inside and along the top of the bag. During every day use you will never see these screws tucked along the top inside of the saddlebag. If they come loose they will work their way out due to gravity. I was lucky to find the screw before it got lost.

The other 3 screws in the right saddlebag were not tight either. Checked the left side bag, these were not as loose but still snugged up a bit more. These screws pull down directly on the plastic so don't over-tighten or you risk cracking the plastic, just good and snug.
