I had a set of hard versys bags but then I wrecked them so now I have the brackets but no bags and I have found these that I think look really nice and will work well for about $170 I am ording a set next pay check. I found this picture on another blog on the versys and he said he really liked them.
$1000 Canadian seems high, not knowing the exchange rate. The Kawi bags are just Givi, so if you can do without the badging, order up Givis for cheaper. Heck, seems like you could get Caribous for cheaper.
I just got my first Wolfman bag today. Seems pretty solid. Should be a good choice.
I also have the Trax luggage and SW Motech mounting brackets. The advantage to SW Motech's brackets is that you can have side cases and a top case. The standard Givi brackets supposedly won't allow for that. You can use the SW Motech brackets with Givi luggage as well. Twisted Throttle sells all of these brands. When I purchased mine about this time last year, they were almost identical in price to the Givi luggage, and less than just about any other aluminum luggage out there.
Well, if you just want something OK that's affordable, I got the Dowco 4-piece soft luggage set for about $100US from MotorcycleSuperstore.com for my Ninja, then moved them to my newer Ninja, and just put them on the V tonight sans tail bag so I could take the girl for a spin. They're fabric, but surprisingly durable and small enough to leave the saddle bags on when riding 2-up.
The prices on those seahorse bags seem to good to be true! The website doesn't have great pics. Would you be able to get us pics of them on your brother's bike? How did he mount them on the motech racks? How durable do they seem?
Norman, I ordered the Givi rack from my dealer in Montreal (Mistake!!) and then wanted the E41 on them. Givi Canada (Importation Thibault) wanted $900 for the set. I got them from twisted throttle for $650 Canadian shipped to my door. Look around the different supplier in the US and get them there. Just use somebody that ships USPS and not UPS or you will get hit with brokerage fees that add up quickly.
This my Versys with Nelson Riggs sadle bags and the expandable tail bag. This is also a Joe Rocket Manta Tank Bag (not the XL model). Unfortunately, this rig turns my bike into a single seater.
