Tuner beat me to it. I was thinking about that clear plastic that you can put over painted surfaces.

There used to be a guy on here selling the 3M clear sheeting. I am not sure what happened to him. I am considering having the bottom 3-5 inches of my hard bags coated, they are getting beat up from all the gravel and asphalt I ride through going to work. I saw a ad for one of the spray in liner that has a slick finish for boat bottoms,etc. Not sure what brand. I would look for the clear film before spraying(or having it done)bed liner on the lids.

the rhino liner i was thinking of using was a spray on stuff that you can add the sand into, however while spraying the liner in the sides of my 57 rahchero before installing the aluminum diamond plate, i did not put the sand in the mix. the stuff stays sorta shiny, but has a little bit of texture. i thought it would make the lids of the saddlebags much more forgiving when i do happen to drag a heel of toe across the top of the lid. i don't like the vinyl kind that harley and mustang sell to cover the lids. with my streetglide being vivid black, it shouldn't stand out much, and might work great to increase durability. i'm tall, and generally don't end up dragging a foot across the bag, but there have been times that i have and rubbing out the minor smudges could eventually rub through the clearcoat. the thought of the 3-M clear plastic would work fine, if there were a way to avoid bubbles while installing. there's a method of soapy water and a squeegie i guess. oh well. i think i've had to rub out the top about three times in the past two years, so it's not a big deal.

Maybe take a look on e-bay for some lids, i've seen them on there pretty cheap, and since you'll be coating them anyways, color shouldn't matter. That way if you don't like the results it won't cost you big money to change it back. Good luck and please post some pics if you decide to give it a whirl.

I would try it on a cheap set of lids first. Personally I would try the 3M type clear plastic sheets first. A buddy of mine restores old cars and puts them on the rockers and man, you cant even tell that stuff is there. Looks good!
