Pelicans on all the time, top box but only when the wife is on board or it's a long trip. Usually alternate between a small commuter tank bag and a big one for touring.

I have never liked saddlebags on any bike I've owned over the past 30 years. Top luggage only - seat packs, top cases, tank bags.

Everyday riding, 33 liter Trekker and maybe one of my small Marsee tank bags..



Going out of town, I'll use a 52 liter Trekker..



If I were to need even more room, a dry bag would sit on the passenger seat.

I use my top case for day to day riding and all day rides...kinda like a trunk (or boot for the Brits).

I have a Givi V46 top case (I wanted something large enough to hold my XXL modular helmet) and Nelson Rigg CL850 side bags. An advantage of having the side bags on at all times is that between them and the H&B engine guards, it spares the plastics, etc. from damage if the bike decides to take a nap.

I wholeheartedly agree. This is a big bike, it can easily handle the weight. I've had mine for about 9 months now, mounted to some Jesse racks a fellow inmate donated to me.

I've been saving for actual Jesse's in the meantime...which arrive TODAY!

Here's some pics of my setup(s)

Givi topcase (big one...holds 2 helmets... or one briefcase ) all the time.

Have 2 side cases I use when I need to haul more stuff (also Givi) but otherwise leave them off.

And a tank bag (Oxford) that has multiple layer options, all with a clear plastic map window on top that's great for day trips.

I keep my Jesse panniers and Givi topcase on all the time with one exception, when I'm camping at one site for the entire trip. Then Ill remove all of them once I get unloaded at the site and leave them off until its time to pack up and head home. I've done this to keep them from getting damaged if I drop it, but I have dropped the bike several times and the Jesse bags are damn stout and have not been damaged at all. But other than that they're always on.
