If ya notice that doesn't even include the mounting brackets. Ouch.

However, I need something to carry stuff in. I had saddlebags on my last bike and miss them. When we head out just for an evening ride it can be 85 leaving and 65 coming back. The Suzuki jacket also has those plates in it making even more difficult to carry and hate to not use it. But I'm uncertain as to how bags would look on this bike, given its sport styling and how wide it already is. Not many choices either. I am going to get the new Cobra mini backrest for the wifey and may try to find something to slip over the back of it, like some kind of backpack.

Any new pics of sugestions out there? :eek:

I don think they will sell a single pair. Too expensive and poorly designed. Look at that bracket underneath!! and if you see it from the back/front there is a huge gap between the bags and the bike.
I think the bags that troubleis has look better. They are much cheaper and come in several sizes. The extra large are only $120.00 WOW!! the $1,100.00 left over could buy alot of other stuff!!

I have Cortech bags . They work great and come off in seconds. http://www.imotorcyclestore.com/cgi...gj8125+_DCatNum_02S12TOUCOS_01PageType_02L_01

Do they fit well for the passenger,does the passenger have to sit on top of the strap,or can you mount them under the rear part of the seat so they get to sit on the seat by them selfs,i think my wife would complain if her butt had a strap under it,i know i would not like it either,other than that i like them,and the price is good.

Oh, not too sure about those but understand ya gotta have somethin'. It looks like you had to shift them to the left to miss your pipes.
I ordered a sissybar and may try one of the tourmasters that fit over it: http://www.tourmaster.com/xcart/product.php?productid=126&cat=16

and may also order one of thier saddlebags for longer trips (when need to carry mo sheet): http://www.tourmaster.com/xcart/product.php?productid=133&cat=16

I've got the CorTechs as well... they're excellent, come off in a second, and you can use just the side bags, the seat bag, or all three. There's a helluva lot of storage with them.

Only one small bitch... if you have the seat bag on, the built in bungi cords on the back can scuff the rear fender. Next time I'll just hook up the front bungis.

For the price (about $1300 less than Suzuki's option) it's a no brainer. :bigthumbsup:

how to the Cortech bags mount?  i also noticed that they have Neoprene pads help to protect the motorcycle's finish.  Do they actually rub up against the finish? :hot:
