SW-Motech Side bags

It took me a year to decide which saddlebags/side bags I wanted to go with and here is the result! SW-Motech side bags, expensive but I'm extremely happy with the look and quality. I decided to go with this style of bag as "traditional" saddlebags seem to look out of place on this bike in my opinion. I was going to go with the all black bags but decided to go with black/brown to break up the black a bit. It looks like I'll be able to strap down a drybag across the top of the sidebags and my Corbin seat as well!

The bags look nice...I just can't get over the humpback whale looking Corbin seat though.

yeah me too, I think the single seat suits best this bike, the bags however look awesome and the forks bag is awesome looking too.

Yes, the left is bigger than the right because of the exhaust on the right hand side. I believe they are 13.5 and 9.8L (left and right respectively). I bought them as well but am about to send them back as they are not lockable which I didn't realize when I purchased.

After installing I wish I got the larger bag for the right side, there would be still plenty of clearance. I agree, lockable would be nice

I am just thinking to get these bags and sell the thai leather bags I have now mounted directly on my fenders.
Even its not lockable I like the design..

they look great, thanks for the review

If it doesn't put a smile on your face, you're on the wrong bike!
