Bags connection Speed pack

Does anyone have this on their Versys?
http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade...tview/919/340/

Thinking about buying them.
My Reasoning:
1.After buying the Versys and other farkels, I am starting to feel a little light in the wallet.
2. cheaper than buying v35 cases which hold little in the first place.
3. Easy don, easy doff. No special (expensive) mounting.
4. Transferable to other bike.(Versys mounting hardware for givi's not.)
5. Will provide needed back rest for long trips.
6. I already have 46l top case. This could rest against it.


Thoughts? Comments? Ideas?

Looks like a nice bag and it you don't want to have the bags installed most of the time or need to be about to lock them then a bag like that is perfect.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

There are lots of options and that one for $325+ seems very expensive.

Soft luggage abounds, look around some more. I know that I've used Tourmaster\Cortech and that works very well for less cash.

WOW! That's nice oxman! Thanks for sharing. Only issue is not waterproof. Does have weather cover though.

Yes it has the rain cover included but it has a slightly narrower width were it sits on the seat but not a big issue i wouldnt think.
