Or should I go with the integrated Dirt-Bagz? I would prefer some general purpose simple soft saddebags that I could use on a couple different bikes.

I made up some 1/2" dia steel tube rails that bolt onto one of the pax footpeg mounting holes, follow the line of the rear side plastic, and bolt on over the rear handles/carrier front mounts. I have attached clips to them so I can just throw over my trusty 'ol saddle bags & snap them on.
Seems to work pretty well, keeps the width & weight down, don't look too ugly & they have survived a couple of low speed offs. Since it's only 4 bolts I usually leave the rails off unless I need them. I have that clear plastic film on the plastic under the bags too. Sorry I dont have a pic, I'll scan some if you're really interested.
