With a pair of ACTUAL saddlebags the weight is carried by the straps over the seat. The racks just serve to keep the bags away from the exhaust and swing arm ect. The bags may be fastened to the racks which serves only to stop them from flapping like wings while going over rough ground and stops them from dragging when leaned over in the corners.
