inexpensive saddlebags

Recommended Posts

Has anyone on here picked up any saddlebags for this bike? I'm not sure what fits...leaning towards just a rear seat bag becuase the side-mount ones are so expensive, plus requre additional hardware.
Yamaha has some--$150 for the mounting hardware and $280 for the bags, and they're not even hard-case. Is that for real?
 
I was looking at these, they may fit really well.

My buddy and I picked up a pair of these Givi ones for a trip we're taking down to NorCal later in the spring. They'll hold basically anything, really easy to attach. That Cortech bag looks like a pretty sweet option too, especially for the price!

Depends on how much storage you really need...

Wow. those look sweet. Wish I had that thing when I was touring the Midwest. You could fit stuff for a month in that thing...
 
I don't need to fit a lot. A small laptop, books, notebooks, a change of clothes and shoes sometimes, that's it.
 
I found these, too, I wonder if anyone's heard anything?

Looks great, about $160 here in Canada. I'm probably going to pick one up.

Not the cheapest but surely one of the best is the Kriega set, I just got the 20L one and I love it so far

Tino, do you have a pic of it installed on your 07? I'm just worried it will interfere with the rear turn signals with a fender eliminator kit installed

I really like those Cortech ones, will think about buying them before the summer.

I tried the Motopak saddle bags today. They would work but it would be a hokey setup. Nothing, really, to attach to in order to keep the bags from flopping into the tire.
I guess something could be jury rigged but I'm not into it.
 
Tailbag seems to be the easy option although I love saddlebags for swinging my old leg over and the low center of gravity.
