    Sorry to post privately, but new registrants can't post to threads for 48hrs. As my ability to remember stuff is about 10 secs I thought I should post before I forgot.

    What I do with the soft bags (Ogio) on my Ninja650R is to place them OVER the tailbag, not under. This raises the side of bag so the center of it (as opposed to the top of the bag) rests against the bike's body.

    Advantages of mounting this way -
    prevents bags from leaning toward tires
    no longer have multiple straps on the tail lights
    reduces the amount of deformation in the "stiffeners" in the side of the saddlebags
    more stable and secure when traveling at speed
    Disadvantages:
    tailbag must be full/firm
    tailbag contents are not easily accessable
    may require different/additional straps than what came with bag

    If I can remember, I will take some pictures and post them next time I put on my saddlebags.
