Here's a classic once. Ammo cans for saddlebags. Seriously. Why would I spend a couple (read: several) hundred dollars for a pair of waterproof, extremely durable hard bags when I could spend 70 dollars and get some 35mm ammo cans, paint 'em black, and bolt 'em on? Plus, I'm not totally bummed if I drop the bike or scratch the cans. Paint over the scratch, bang out the dent, and when all else fails, fork out another 35 bucks and replace the can. Doesn't look the prettiest, but it gets the job done and gets it done well.
