Soft saddlebags and aftermarket exhaust

My leo vince pipes get a lot hotter than the stock pipes did. How much heat can soft bags take? Is there any way to protect them. I am trying to come up with a way to mount saddlebags without the permanent frame type things to support them so I can remove them and have the bike looking like it does now.

Also, what are some good and cheap saddlebags that look good on the strom? Do the rear signal lights get in the way at all? Thanks.

soft saddle bags

I have a pair of soft saddles made by cortech that fit perfectly. They don't bend the rear blinkers at all. I picked them up from a local Cyclegear store in Greenville, SC. Hope that helps.
