You mean this? If this is the one, it is just part of a much longer video that one of the guys did documenting a trip. This was just one of the highlights. But like last time I ask: Why does he just keep riding away?    ???

Because he needs to find a safe place to turn around?

Because it was staged? I dunno. Has anyone here seen someone else's C14 bag pop off? I haven't.

Haven't "seen" it but in Rhode Island this past May we had a 14 have it's bag "Spontaneously eject"   
You only need two tools in life – WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn’t move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn’t move and does, use the duct tape.

+1   The couple riding were very surprised when they returned after the short ride. But it made it easier to go back looking for it.

I haven't personally seen it happen.  In  July, I hit a pretty significant bump, that should have knocked off something, but did not.  However, I did pin mine, just in case.

Can you please explain what you did to pin your saddle bags? Has there ever been any sort of recall for this happening?

The front 'fork' of the saddlebag straddles the mount that the rear footpegs mount to, as I'm sure you know.  I found some 2 1/2 inch long, 3/8 inch hitch pins, that have the little ball bearing in the side of the tip, and a pull ring attached to the other end.  Found them in a fastener shop here in Eugene, Oregon.  Home Depot did not have em, but they do have pins using cotter pins, that could be used.  I then drilled a 3/8 inch hole while the bags were attached.  The first time I put the pins in, it was pretty tight, but you don't want them rattling around, or falling out.  Took about 10 minutes to do, and it is extra insurance against losing those puppies.

I had a bag pop off, but it wasn't secured properly after I hit it with a concrete gas pump protector. So I guess I crashed mine off the bike, I've since replaced it, and knock on wood, I've been good.
