I have been helping Cray to find saddlebags that will take A3 size sheets, without rolling or folding. Considered going to the local saddlery for a custom made set. Yours look like they would do the job . . would you mind checking that that plz Dazza? Ta.

I believe matt and kylie have opened stores now in Melbourne and Sydney, a great family business to support. matts a quadraplegic due to a bike accident while training , as he was a world supercross rider and had his accident at 19, you will normally find him wheeling around the goldcoast store,he greets you with a massive smile, and will help you get the proper gear a lot of aaccessorie shops will sell you what you like the look of, and don't offer other options that are better fitted to youre needs. his family all are involved, he does a lot of fundraising for charity, they do package deals as well for newbies.they are also have a store in caloundra, the service is exceptional.
I have the same system. However mine is mounted the other way around. I too found they sag so have actually bolted the base thru to a board on the luggage rack. I found it always sagged over to the left and was constantly pulling it upright to sit centre. I also thought the barrel sitting atop didn't look right and it sits behind the big bag or on top of my swag. I have had mine for about 5 yrs now and still looks great. I don't let the top flap hang open by its own weight while loading/unloading as on others I have seen the vinyl type fabric crack at that crease, so I always support it when opening. Highly recommended really. I paid $199 in 2010. I have even seen them cheaper over the years.
george: Hi Gordon. You should post you question on the Honda Shadow Mods board in the Bike Talk area. Easier for people to reply there.
