Domclout Thanks i will try that.

Doug Just Doug You can get Givi stuff much cheaper from Italy, even with shipping. Try motostorm.it. I've had great luck with them.

Domclout I have a pair of ogio soft cases but they sag a bit plus they hit the flashers. It would probably be better if there was a metal frame behind the saddle bags.

tommyvous59 price check and try to get the best deal on a reputable brand. BUT, consider saddle bags with zipper locks. they don't break when you tip over, they protect your bike, and are durable. i still have mine after 9 years though the rain covers gave up the ghost after 5 years. i since made homemade covers that work even better. the zipper locks discourage opportunistic thieves. (determined thieves will break into anything.) i do have a givi 48 liter top case. i use the top case around town and add the saddle bags with matching pillion bag touring.

Domclout Thanks, I will look into the shad system and the kappa. I was also thinking about making a custom frame. Has anybody tried that before.

Uraled Take a look at Kappa. Made by Givi but more affordable.

I have them on my Versys 300X

Make sure those fit the 650's because the Shad I really liked wouldn't due to the shortening of the mounting system for the 300.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
