Well finally done it, mounted nomad hard bags on the V2K. Picked them up a couple of months ago for $100.00, included chrome tube type top bag guards. The bags are a little scratched but not bad. Also lowered the trunk 2", looks better and also lowers the center of gravity a bit. Installation was fairly simple using the Kawasaki saddlebag mounts, just had to make new spacers to accommodate the trunk mounts. Was worried that they would look to high with the stock mufflers but to me they look great. Going to the body shop for paint tomorrow, will send pics when remounted with fresh paint.
