Ok Folks, I've read some of the threads about adapting bags like the Tour Master Cortech sport bags to work on the 109 but from all I can gather you have to have the rear passenger seat on the bike in order for them to work without touching the pipes and such. I just don't like the looks of my 109 with the rear passenger seat on it...so I always have the rear seat cowling on it (my wife rides her own bike anyway so I really don't need a passenger seat). I went to a local shop last week that had the Tour Master bags in stock and tried to see if they would fit under the rear cowling but they won't due to the rubber stops under the cowling having to be locked into slots in the rear fender. I like the looks of the bolt on Suzuki leather saddle bags but the dealer says he has no idea when they will be released plus I think $400 plus another $90 for the supports is a little much for saddle bags IMHO. I had inquired with the Leather Lyke folks and they said they didn't think they'd offer bags from them for the 109 due to the high pipe on it and the bags having to be small in order for them to work. SO......any of you have any suggestions for bags that will work with the rear seat cowling on and that won't cost me a fortune?? I'd prefer some quick release type bags so I can take them off once I get to my destination on long trips.
