The side bags were ok, but not great.

The difference between the two is about $600.

What to do? Basic model and pony up for better luggage? Or go for the "Adventure" model?

I was in the same boat a month ago and I went with the adv model. One I didn't like the red color of the standard version. Two I didn't have the cash for the luggage that I wanted and three I figured it'd do till I got the cash for the luggage I wanted.
