Jesse side bags all the time. Lunch and water go in one side on the way to work. Everything that I stop to pick up on the way home goes in the other side. I strap a Sealine duffel bag to the back when I'm camping. Depending on the trip there are tank bags of various sizes involved too.

Top case only . . . I don't like extra width of the panniers. I can usually cram what I need in the top case and strap on the rest on the passenger seat.

If I gotta take something else for a trip, it gets strapped down and I get a back rest.

Those ammo cans are cool, but they weigh a ton!!

I always have my Wolfman Rainier tank bag on. If I'm riding to work, I have my Caribou topcase. If I'm on a trip longer than a couple of nights, I take it all.

I have Happy trails side bags but usually only run the top box (stock suzuki) when I commute as I can fit my lid and other gear in it.

I was quite comfortable with where they had been for my first 30 or so years, but after the second 10 + lb child, my wife decided a jar on the mantle was a better place for them.
That is what you meant, right?
