Loaded my soft bags from my old bike

Finally got a chance to tangle with my soft bags I used for my old Ninja 250 and put them on the Versys. Nice thing about the PLR450 side racks is they make a nice support structure for soft bags till I can get my hard bags.

Anyway Tourmaster Cruiser III slant bags installed and secured. Tested this morning and all went well. Expands my carrying capacity a bit. Uses two straps one front and one back to secure to the bike along with the adjustable center area. While they don't lock they still help.

More than enough space to pack a few extra tools some change of clothes for two days and personal hygiene items. Looks like I will be heading to Charlotte with these as I have to hold off on my hard bags a bit longer. These bags along with my tank bag that is now a tail bag should give me more than enough capacity for a 4 day trip.

Looks like some nice bags. Just be careful lane splitting.

Not a worry here in Maryland. Lane splitting is a big no-no.

These worked really well on the Ninja. Without the extra frame support I wouldn't use them on the V as I have to expand them out a bit to far on the center. The Givi racks make a nice soft bag support/secure method though.
