Had to do the same thing with my old airhead, course the bags came off quite a bit easier :) but it is a pain. Those old 1200 are nice bikes, mine still handles traveling like it did back in it's day. Sporty enough to be fun in the twisties, comfortable to ride all day, and enough power to haul more stuff that you should on a motorcycle :)
