P.S. After looking at that photo again I realized that Suzuki is also trying to let the bags work with a passenger on the bike. And the high exhaust pipes are why they made it so short.
At the Cleveland show, there was an M109R displayed with color-matched hard bags. There is a pic around here somewhere.gradona said:I'm not sure but they might look better color keyed to the bike. I'd like to see them on the black bike.
To each his own, I guess, but I think knapsacks are kind of a squid thing. They aren't safe. And God help you if you should ever dump while wearing one.phaed said:i know how handy saddlebags are, but i just don't think they are gonna look good on this bike (don't think it looks good with the 2 up seat on it either).Â gonna stick with a backpack when i need to carry something.
They make sport tailbags that do exactly that... you affix a velcro base to the pillion or tail section, and the bag just sits on top. You can just rip it right off when you don't need it. Not too secure, but motorcycle luggage isn't really very secure by nature anyway.VZR1800 said:Since most of us aren't riding two-up, another idea would be to sacrafice the pillion seat to develop a pop-on pop-off
bag that's attatched to the pillion. I'm tempted to order an extra pillion, just so I could bolt a bag to it.
