Luggage

What kind of bags or other types of luggage have you installed on your bike? I am trying to decide what to do but I am looking for a solution that will not make the bike look like a standard cruiser. I love the look of the bike and want to get something unobtrusive or removable. Post pictures if you have them! Thanks!

I just use the Kawi tail bag. It holds quite a bit, and doesn't change the lines.

I went with one of the Biker's Friend bags. Its a bit pricey but worth it IMO. I talked about it a bit in a previous post I'll try and link to.
Only pictures I have of it without the saddlebags on also are here : Luggage
I think that should permalink right the the post, if not its # 45 of 56 in the Luggage thread from 2015.
Since then I got saddlebags just to have constant storage options and use the Biker's Friend bag more as an extra for when I'm going on a trip or just want to use the backrest.

If you want to see what it looks like saddlebags and all let me know and I'll dig some up.

My review of Viking Bags. Wife loves them. Went through the hurricane last October and everything stayed dry inside.
