But at the end of the day it works out like this for me
Pair Teton 9x15x18 $382 (inc ship)
Zega Mounting system $130 (inc ship)
$512
I'll have to measure and drill 36 holes (in the right places ) for the mounting system. I help a mate fit his new Zegas on his GSA. I was very impressed (and intimidated) by how accurately the mounting system fitted in the mounting bracket. I was tight enough that you had to push to pop it in and very firm once in. That seams like a really good thing on the back of a D/S Bike. A mm (.04" for the internationally challenged) eitherway and it would not be as good.
OR
I get the Zega's at an additional $86 ($598) and the mounting is all done and has a guarantee.

That's how it works in my deranged world
you already have a rack?
HT sells racks for the bags and they will mount them in a nuetral position fer ya. so it would be aboot 700 for a setup like the Zegas
but....if the Zegas are under 8 that seems like a pretty decent deal if you prefer TT over HT
