You might have to put some rubber/foam washers/material to colapse/squeeze down to get a tight fit. If this would work then there would be no need for something to cover up the threads for appearnce when the bags are removed. Just food for thought, i haven't had my sporty long enough to be at the point where I'm ready to try this myself yet, but if i get to that point i will try it and let everyone know how it goes.
Interesting thought. My concern is that it would not be a secure fit and the bags would move even with the foam you mentioned.

It is definately something that could make installing and removing the saddle bags quick and easy if anyone could work out the details. I'll be giving it a try eventually, but first things first.

But great idea overall.... I may have to do this too. I hate my underseat bag strap.

Even though this thread is ancient, guys like me have come into the flock recently and are asking the same old "how to" questions.
Is it possible someone has the ambition and the technology to repost all the lost PBucket photos......... ?
