    Blackbird saddlebags

    I've been looking but haven't found anything that jumps out at me for saddlebags. I only want them for a weekend type trip. Not sure if there are custom/stock, soft or anything available. Any ideas?

    I run Givi Willie. Very happy with them.

    Re: Blackbird saddlebags

    Love my Hondaline hard bags, but you're looking for something less permanent, I suspect, so perhaps something from here: Street Bike Saddlebags Luggage Accessories - Motorcycle Superstore
    Where are we going...and what am I doing in this hand basket??

    Re: Blackbird saddlebags

    I have used a couple differnt setups:
    Soft Bags:

    1. Cortech Sport Saddlebags - I had these for a while, and used them in combo with the tailbag (which connects to the saddlebags for easy setup) for my trip to Montana. They worked great and I have nothing bad to say about the bags. Perfect combination of bags for day trips or week long trips. You can see pictures of the bags here: CBRXX.com - billypf's Album: Sturgis Trip

    2. Chase Harper Stealth Saddlebags - great quality semi-soft bag. They were a little small, but perfect for a day trip. I used them a lot.

    Hard Bags
    1. Corbin Beetle bags - don't waste your time and money. The bags are pretty fragile (I had two different bags crack in shipping) and they do not hold that much. the other issue is that they have a very small opening to get stuff in them. The only positive to them is the look of them, which many don't like anyways.

    2. The Hondaline Bags - Great setup. Its hard to compare the hard and soft setups, but they are great. Easy on and off (come off in seconds), look great, and hold a lot. They fit the bike very well and its nice that there is just a frame left when you want to ride without the bags. The frame itself is relatively quick to install and take off (20-30 min max) and isn't obtrusive if you leave it on. Here is a thread with pictures of these:http://www.cbrxx.com/for-sale-wanted...-pictures.html


    The only reason that I wouldn't recommend the Hondaline setup is if you aren't going to do use bags frequently. This is ONLY because they cost more than the soft bags. For the occasional use and versatility get the Cortech Sport Saddlebags and Sport Tail bag.

    Re: Blackbird saddlebags

    I've been pondering this one myself.

    For my purposes I've narrowed it down to two choices:

    Cheap solution: Cortech Tribags. Looks like a good setup with matching tail bag available. I also have a Cortech tank bag, so that's a bonus. Pros: $145, lots of room. Cons: Can easily or securely lock them to the bike or lock them shut and not waterproof (rain covers suck).

    Expensive solution: Givi E41/whatever w/ SW motech quick release mounts.
    Obvious con: $700. Pros: Everything else.

    I should just ante up and get the Givis, but thats a tough nut to swallow.

    That is the exact reason that I opted to get the OEM bags. Plus I liked how they looked over the GIVI bags and have no desire for a topcase.

    Re: Blackbird saddlebags

    I have these (2)
    Monokey

    I absolutely love them. They have a smaller opening door operated by a combination lock which is very nice because I can put my large backpack in the case, close it, then reopen that small door to stuff every square inch of the inside. Also, I got the wingrack with a top-case mount, so when I go downtown (Chicago) and I need to find parking, I'll pop one of the sides off and put it up top for some extra clearance (the sides and top case mounts are all the same, also makes a good luggage rack).

    Re: Blackbird saddlebags

    Thanks for all the input. I will check David Silver Spares. Givi also seems like a great option but I am looking for OEM.

    Not sure where the introductions section is located.

    I bought mine from DSS and they were less than the GIVI equivalent, even including shipping from England. They are manufactured by GIVI for Honda, so the quality is excellent. Do yourself a favour and spend the extra on liners - they are extremely handy.

    Re: Blackbird saddlebags

    If you install the brake lite on the top bag then side bags won't go on the top rack.
