My feedback...

Don't do it. Wear a backpack.

If you're set on luggage, would a fork bag on the rear left do enough? It may be the only luggage that looks ok

Just my 2 cents

Well the biker friend bag has been pretty popular. I didn't want to spend that kind of money. So I used a black back pack I had left from my military days and had a triangle shaped canvas patch sewn on the back. Now I can pack for about 4 or 5 days and it slides right over my sissy bar. Secured with a few bungees Or ratchet strap. I keep all my tools and extra goggles in my fork bag. If u are going to do alot of traveling I would suggest either saddleman luggage, bikers friend bag or large back pack. All in preference really.

This worked amazing for an 8 day 4,000 mile trip. Required my Ginz sissy bar and luggage rack though. If you want to go two up, get the old school bar instead of the hell bent. Then you can put the T-Bag on the luggage rack with the round bag on top. I don't think you could carry as much weight on the luggage rack though.

The T-Bag luggage is also awesome.

More pictures in my profile albums.

If you look in the galleries or search luggage or saddle bags you will find many creative solutions by the forum members.

Good luck!

The two easiest options are to get a set of the Sabre saddle bag brackets and bags or get a set like Lofty but as the Honda and lebag (what lofty used) are about the same price I'd take a long look at the Honda bags first.

Take a look at Lofty's thread.
Studded saddle bags

If you're up for a bit of fab work then take a look at Gar's Givi bags.

I'd really like to try the sabre bag idea but I hate to be the Guinea pig, as far as I can find no one has actually done it?

Swing Arm

Try a swing arm bag attached pic of my bag, keeps the bike lean and clean.
