I'd be interested in pics and ideas too - looking for something to lash onto the pillion seat for a planned run through France next Spring.

I'm thinking a drybag and straps rather than panniers/topbox though - only be carrying a change of clothes and a credit card.

Viaterra Velox are specifically designed for the duke and mount on your pillion grab rails and footpegs. You also have the option of running them as a single side bag. Very good product as long as shipping costs don't sting you too much.

Search the forum guys, there's plenty of talk recently on both saddle and seat bags.

That looks a pretty smart set-up Dala - what's the capacity like and are they waterproof or would they need to be dry-bagged?

They come with waterproof covers, but i prefer to run my stuff in dry bags instead, and yeah, shipping hurts..

I've got the Hepco Royster bags.

22 Litres each. They come with an internal drybag, very clever. Seems wide on the picture but in reality I do't think it looks bad.

I selected these because I wanted something that was compatible with a top case rack at the attachment points. The combo of SW-Motech alu-rack and Hepco C-Frame for the side bags works perfectly.

I just had to modify the rear mounting flat bar, in order to clear the bigger US/CAN spec turn signals.

(Can't upload the pictures at the moment... The upload aborts every time??. Here is a link for them)

Even with shipping to the US I can't find bags even close to as cheap as the Viaterra Velox. Are these bags large enough to hold a helmet?
