What are those saddle bags, how do you like them?
I love them. I got them online from Nelson-Rigg along with the tank bag. They're called CL-950s. The newer version actually has MORE space and side pockets.
I ride this thing 5 or 6 days a week, (the wife drives the Element, I ride to my job downtown, rain or shine) and the saddle bags give me the flexibility to actually carry stuff and the tank bag is the best purchase ever. This bike is the gs500f which has been around forever so the engine is tested time and again and is known for workhorse reliability.
If only I could find some more agressive tires with deeper treads.
