Whenever you put the soft bags on are you running the straps over the rails or under or over the seat or under the seat. I have a set of bags not sure which brand but can not get them to fit. What about scratch preventive. I am wanting hard bags but can't fork out the money. I am looking at the give soft bag brackets not seen any on a bike with bags mounted and a rear shot. If anyone has any suggestion let me know with gas going up it is time for bags.

with this setup(see last pic) I run the sraps OVER the handrails, , the tailbag holds it all together. It all depends on what brand you have. It took me a few long rides to get mine setup for were I was happy

Hello Joe - here is my idea ---
The shield and bags comes off in 15 minutes.
Works really well.

This thread is great, I'd love to see more pictures. Especially with lower fairings installed. I have a Ninja 650R as a first bike that my girlfriend and I are learning on. When she gets comfortable riding on the freeway by herself, we're going to need a second bike and I want to get the sportiest bike that has hard bags available. I think the FZ1 is that bike.

I've already started converting my 650R into a sport tourer.

FUP : Such a beautiful presentation of a "naked" bike.

We are going to the WCG in August. Mike will be on the FJR, and should have ample baggage with the stock panniers and a Givi top case, along with his RKA tailbag and Nelson Rigg tank bag.

I have an Oxford humpback tailbag. I like it, but Mike doesn't like any tailbag with bungies. (after reading about them popping off and causing accidents). The Ninja 500, my first bike, had great hooks for bungies, but the 650 didn't and neither does the FZ.

What we found out on the Saddle Sore 1000 was packing emergency gear and essentials for 24 hours doesn't leave much room for...oh, mascara, so we need to better outfit my FZ for the trip, and I'm not going $$$ with hard bags. So a few questions:

1) Those of you with Oxford saddlebags and tankbags, how do they wear against the bike? Do they rub the paint, do they drag anywhere they shouldn't, does the tank bag fit well to the FZ tank?

2) Those of you with saddlebags, do you find you use them often enough to justify the expense, or having used them for 1 or 2 long trips, you never use them again?

3) Has anyone seen/tried the new line of FirstGear Silverstone bags? Thoughts, opinions? The tailbag also bungies so I already got a frown on that one.
http://www.highlandsyamaha.com/pages...a-fzr-750.aspx

I kind of joke about the mascara. I'll be packing pretty light but I'd sure love to be on the "No underwear left behind" policy.

I have had the Oxford saddlebags for more than 3 years and used them
a lot.What I like best about them is the expanding feature, since I am a lousy packer and at times am on the road for well over a week.
As to rubbing, I secure the bags well (snugly) plus add a couple of bungees to keep things from moving and chafing.
Not pretty, but it holds up, works for me.
Tankbag completes the "luggage"

Or you could get a run at it from behind and then leap onto it sorta like the cowboys in the old Western movies when they need to high tail it outta Dodge. When you get it right it looks real cool and impresses the ladies... YeeHaw!!!

Awesome thread, keep the pics coming.....I'm look'n for bags and such. I need minimal storage right now, but I love to see all the options!

So what's the theft rate on magnetic tank bags? I want a slim one for commute to work (and want to leave it on the bike). I don't know the etiquette associated with this kinda stuff yet......

Man, your 650R looks right at home with
your touring mods.
And, yes the FZ1 imo, is the sportiest bike
out there to tour with hard bags. You can
load one to the max with power to spare.

So, are you saying after adding a FZ1
that this 650R will stick around, and become
your girl's bike?
Excellent plan. Great choices.

Shots from our trip to Miller for WSBK a couple weeks ago. I rode up with el barto who had a similar Cortech setup on his Gen 2.
