I've also got a green 2009, even though my signature shows a 08, and the monokey mounts with the V35's. I leave the mounts on all the time and the bags about half the time. It's great having all the extra room for a trip, but i usually only need the tank bag around town. However, I love having the Admore lights that fit under the reflective prism on the rear of the bags. You need to get those since they really make you much more visible day and night.
