Harley-Davidson is recalling over 185,000 bikes in the U.S. due to a saddlebag issue.

The saddlebag can fall off, upping the chance of a crash.

The recall includes models from the 2014 and 2015 years, including the Road King, Street Glide, Electra Glide Ultra Classic, Ultra Limited, Police Road King, Police Electra Glide, and CVO Ultra Limited bikes. Also affected are the 2014 CVO Road King, and the 2015 Electra Glide Ultra Classic Low, Ultra Limited Low, Road Glide, CVO Street Glide, and CVO Road Glide Ultra motorcycles.

The motorcycle company uncovered the issue after sifting through warranty claims, according to the Associated Press. The part will be replaced for free beginning July 27.

In April, Harley-Davidson (HOG) issued a recall of 46,000 bikes due to a gear issue.

Meanwhile, the company is trying to woo younger consumers in order to boost sales.
