I picked up some nylon throwover bags for those day trips to the beach. I am pretty happy with them. I think they are about as good as it gets as far as throwover bags go for the nine. What do you guys think?

I got them from leatherup.com, they were around $125.00, i think they're called the "tourmaster cruiser lll x-large"

I know this may sound crazy but I have to ask:p I was thinking about buying some saddle bags for mines as well, but was wondering if you use them will it rub on your bike and mess your paint up?

Do you have the side supports on. Just wondering because the right side bag looks awefully close to getting bounced in to the sidewall when you get on some bumpy roads.

does anyone know about any good saddle bags that dont touch your paint?
You would need to get a set of quick release bags much like the suzuki soft or hard bags. Any bags that are connected to eachother via a yoke will most likely touch the paint in some way or another. Mine have resulted in slight wear through the clear coat after 2 years.

Those are the best looking soft bags I've seen on a 109. I looked at a lot of them and ended up going with hard bags, but I seldom have them on the bike.

Check out LeatherLyke bags. Kind of expensive, but you can take them on and off in a mater of seconds. And they are lockable.

These are the ones that I have on my bike the Kurykin Grand Throwover bags. I really like them but recently on a longer trip, due to the weight of the bags they sagged low and started making contact with my tire rubber and now there is a huge hole burnt from the corner of my bag

No side supports...you're right though about the bags hanging by the tire...I'll try to adjust them better before a trip.

RicoChet's bags are maybe the best throwovers for the nine but for as little as I will use them I liked the price of the ones that I bought...about half the cost of the kuryakyns.
