I don't want to try and talk you out of,, or into,, one or the other. I actually have three different types.
Aluminum hard cases, Soft (Heavy Cordura) and Plastic. All three have different benefits and liabilities.
The hard cases have better security. By that I mean, you can lock your stuff up to protect it from theft to a certain degree.
But I do like the soft luggage on my 990R. Just an FYI,, the soft luggage I chose was just about as expensive as my hard cases by the time I bought the KTM racks and bags. Save some cash and install the racks yourself. It's really pretty easy to do if you have a little mechanical ability and a few tools (some will be in the KTM tool Kit most likely).
Maybe other inmates will give you the pros and cons of each from their experience.
Lots of options from a lot of different manufacturers.
+1 on the Kriega Overland 60, add a Wolfman Beta Plus tail bag,,, and you got some serious room for lots of gear.
