Does anybody know of some small saddlebags I can put on the beast? I had the stock Buell ones and liked them. The zippers gave out and they became unusable. Currently have a tailbag on it, prefer saddlebags though. Want small ones.

I really like the small MotoCentric expandable bags I hang off the STT. They're soft but lots of zippered pockets and even came with rain covers: )

What bike is that?

Doesn't look like a 1125 to me.

"What bike is that?

Haha, Soft bags are rarely motorcycle specific. They did fit well on my CR, I ran the rear strap under the pillion pad for security.

On all the Buells you'll want to keep the passenger peg mounts on to support them from hitting the rear tire.

Have new zippers put in your old bags.That's what I did.

If it doesn't have to be saddle bags, I'd take a look at the Ventura bag system. The rails for it is easy to install and they have rails that fit virtually any bike. The bag rests on your rear seat, and has backpack straps so when I get to work I just take the bag off the bike (two clips) and walk off with it.

Thanks guys. Shaggin, I did get some bags about the size you have. Would like smaller ones, more esthetic lines. Am getting to thinking new zippers are worth looking into. After all, style is what we're all about. lol
I do like to be able to carry some crap and don't like backpacks.

The Cortech and Nelson Riggs sport line stuff looks good on the Buell.
