Bags for the DL650 even have cutouts where the exhausts aren't! I have a tool tube there now, attached to the inside of the frame.

I really like being able to move them forward if you are riding solo.

I had a mostly positive experience buying the bags directly in 07 or 08 or whenever I bought them. The V-Strom instructions were really rudimentary and they sent the wrong keys. I mailed back the keys and a CD with a bunch of pictures of installation on a DL650. I got back one set of keys, and several emails went unanswered. I got the impression that the V-Strom wasn't a big focus for them and had keys duplicated by a locksmith. I live in the city so the relatively secure closures were a plus for me.

They are durable.....
