Gonna be shopping for luggage in the next couple weeks and wanted to put this out there. I have had the factory setup and liked it a lot, but am open to other possibilities. Also, if anyone has a set collecting dust, give me a shout.

Ideas?

Oh yeah, if your suggestion is for something you have other than the factory bags, pics are appreciated!

I believe you can still get OEM brackets from the manufacturer. Won't be cheap though. And you can get the stock bags, without the Buell logo though. Again, not cheap.

Happy-Trail is still offering Ulysses bags/racks, now with a price reduction - though still pricey. They are well made, I have a set on mine - this is the 4th bike for the same bags, I re-constructed the racks from a KLR that I had before.

Slash-

I thought about the HT luggage. From the pic, it looks like there is zero room for a passenger to use their pegs. Is that accurate?

It would depend on the size of the bags and where you position them. I don't carry a passenger so I put them as far forward as possible for weight distribution.

I've sent and received a few PMs; just waiting on some pictures from a few of you gents. Enjoy the weight gain and family time this weekend and I will likely figure out what I am going to do early next week. Will let you all know at that time.

Cheers.

If I had to start from zero, I would get the racks from Hepco and get something other than the stock journeys.
I have had zero problems with my stock journeys but that's only because people on this forum warned about the fragile latches.
It all costs huge money though.

I went with the Juniors from Hepco Becker... they're slightly smaller (42 vs 40 liters) but much more useable with better latches. Plus if you run in the city much you can get 30 liter bags that are much narrower. If that doesn't do it for you HB aluminum panniers will mount on the same racks. Pricey yes, but really nice and bulletproof. You do need to relocate the turn signals aft for clearance or try to source the AU turn signal mounts..

Barring nuclear holocaust, I seem to have a deal with Kmbuell for a set. Thanks to all who offered.
