Of course your feet don't get beat up, but a metal or plastic object under continual vibration is gonna show signs of wear mo' ricky tick, and the internal parts of that handgun are gonna be vibrating too! Just put something delicate inside your saddlebags sometime... but you're completely correct about dust, and moisture, as well...those footboards aren't weatherproof...
Now, it's possible that the foam will take care of the vibration issues, to be certain, but I'm not so sure that I'd want my own pistol to be the demo unit! I know I've lost a cigar or two in my saddlebags and sissybar bags from vibration along the way.
