I am new to bikes with leather saddle bags. I ordered the stock leather bags with spools. From what I've seen it looks like the exhaust will be very close. Does anyone else see a possible problem of burning bags? Also, what is the best treatment for the leather?
Signed NOT PATIENT AT ALL the wait is killing me, the only relief is checking out this forum and getting ideas.

Unless your bags are in direct contact with the pipes there is no danger what so ever. Touching the pipes would just darken the leather it will never be enough to reach ignition point so you won't see a bike trailing smoke unless the engine is the culprit.
