Looking for Corbin (or anyone else) to do something like this for a nice set of hard saddlebags to match the bike and integrate the turn signals:

Tried to match the chrome of the front light to pull it together and leave enough room for someone to still sit on the back.
Corbin makes some hardbags for the VRod and the Yahamas, but they are too 'swoopy' for what I would like to see them create for the R.
Any thoughts?

I like the storage of the hard bags but just can't see covering up that awesome back tire. I'm going with a nice bag behind the seat held by bungee. It will sit on fender guards and is easily removable.

I think it looks great. Corbin bags are usually very integrated into the original styling of the bike. I like that you have integrated the turn signals in the bags.

I like that you've integrated the turn signals as well, but I feat that could interfere with removability. Any bags I would buy for this bike would have to come off easily and preferably without tools.

They look great. Why cant we get a quick disco with lights?
There must be a thousand different appplications were you have quick connect items that include electrical connections.
Certainly one of the big companies could do this. Either you have auxillery signals like the LED's that wrap under the fender...
or they could give you some that clip onto the electrical mount thats left behind. I have plenty of ideas but tools or skills....

those are nice. as much as i'm against puttin bags, windshield, 2-up seat on this bike, i'd consider buying something like that if they were easilly removable.

I have looked at a $et of the BMW hard bag$ (black leather covered) to fit on the 109..they would need to sit a tad higher at the top than you show on your design (because of the exhaust height) but would not get in the way of a pillion. Integrated indicators are a great idea but may compromise removeability.
This bike is so cool looking but where can you go without some luggage..bags are a necessity..but nice to be able to get them off quick (like the FJR)
Great idea..congrats!

did you design those ?
Yes. I took a snap of the headlight 'cone' and started with that as the jump off point.
because Ive seen that pic before and there were hardbags already built by suzuki on at least one prtotype that look just like it, Iv'e seen the pic online of it sitting in the showroom.
Sweet, maybe they are finally reading my mind. I'd like to see a photo of what they came up with.
Also saddle bag has no interferance with rider,Â
I drew in the outline of where I thought a driver/passenger positions would be during the design phase to try and keep the bags out of the way. If I get some time, I will save it off to a .jpg file and post it.
I've modified some soft ones with a quarter inch rodstock welded a cage inside for stiffness and they are nowhere near my wifes but or feet
Good job!
If I could find and decent shop/manufacture that can do fab from clay designs, I would get the bags put together and fabiricated [for at least the 109 that I am drooling over]. I do hope Suzuki or Corbin will beat me to it so I could focus on riding. ;)
