First of all..it's not fiberglass..but ABS. To remove the saddle bag there are multiple steps...go to the DIY section or follow this link http://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=11395...go as far as you need to remove the saddlebag..stop at #17. Both saddlebags come off in a similar fashion

BTW..we are about 30min apart driving time!

Once you've got the bag off, I would use ABS cement and bond a new piece of ABS over the broken part, then drill a hole for the bolt. It will be as good as new, just as strong as it was new.

May seem like quite a task, but it's quite doable. Patience. Good luck and keep us posted.
