Hey everyone, I'm new to this website and hopefully I'm a soon-to-be owner of an M109R. I need to sell my Harley Deuce first. And then I'll be at a Suzuki dealer to put in an order for a Limited Edition M109R. I just wish dealerships allowed test rides without needing a commitment to buy the bike. But yes, I've come to realize Harleys aren't the best on the market and I want to try metric. What I would like to know about the M109R, are there any storage compartments on it somewhere? Does that plastic seat piece detach easily? If so, is there much room under to put maybe a pair of glasses, gloves, EZ-Pass, rag, etc.... I'm so used to my Harley having a fork bag, but that doesn't seem like an option for the M109R. Any comments would be welcome.

I keep some of the paperwork in a waterproof bag under the seat. Otherwise, I bought a magnetic tank bag for when I need storage.

You have to take the front seat off and unbolt the rear plastic cowl to get it off, so it's not a real convenient place to store things :dontknow: There's not much clearance under it, either. There's a little room under the seat for a rag, the manual and other paperwork. If I'm not gonna throw the saddle bags on, I just carry what will fit in my jacket pockets. I've seen a few pictures of fork bags mounted just below the tach and one mounted on the drive shaft cover.

I've put a light pair of gloves and a rag under mime before, that's about all you'll get under the seat. ::)

This is what I use for day and night glasses, rag and gloves. It's 10 x 4 x 2.5. Works out great for small things. I also moved my tach up 1 1/2" to clear the bag

I got a RapidTransit Recon-19 magnetic tank bag. Works really well, has built in straps and plenty of space. Currently has 2 sets of gloves (not including the mechanix gloves), all my registration paperwork and whatever else I needed to squeeze into it. Comes with built in ports for hydration bladder also. Paid retail for it, but since I bought it on short notice I expected that.

As stated above, there is not much room under the seat. I keep a Pocket tire plugger kit, 6 little air bottles jammed in the gaps and a little tire gauge near the battery. I stuffed the adapter for the air bottles in the tool kit and there is no room for anything else. I have not needed much more than that over the years on any bike. The more space you have the more crap you tend to carry with you that you don't need anyways.
