Luggage. What do you have/like?

I've always been partial to Nelson-Rigg.

Had em on my 500r and now have em on my 600r.

I snagged a great deal on the tail bag to match the saddle bags. It has clips that attach directly with the saddle bags if you have em.

These are circa 2007. I've also got a set of "Fastrax" saddle bags that I got off craigslist. Got them in new condition, but they aren't as nice as my Nelson-Rigg's...

For a tank bag, you can't beat the BILT expandable from Cycle Gear. You can get them on sale for CHEAP. I crashed with this one and it held up ok. It has several scratches on the clear plastic window and a snag here and there, but it held up great, and I don't need to change it out anytime soon.

I will say that the Rigg's have great protection against scratching the paint, but I do go off road at times and its gets real dusty back there. It rubbed some of the paint on the 500r.

Cortech is good stuff. A buddy of mine had some Cortech luggage that he liked too.

Cortech SportCombo

I had these, really liked them and should have bought them in black.

They are not expensive, include rain covers, and also clip together. The tail bag is flat and you can lean bag on it.

I've been using Kriega bags on my sport bike. Water tight with roll top closures. Kinda pricey, and a pain if you need to get in to the bags often. But everything stays dry. A must for the things I carry around for work. http://www.kriega.us/us40-combo-moto...-bags-luggage/

I don't have any experience with soft saddle bags, but I've got a rather large tail bag and tank bag that I really like. I believe both are Fieldshear, but I'll check when I get home and try to get pics. Only complaint about having bikes with no metal tank up front is that it makes using the tank bag difficult.
