I have the S3 fairing and saddle bags on my M2. Love it. I have a Corbin gunfighter with lady seat and we tour all over Wisconsin.

Rex did a hell of a job on that M-2. I want too but I won't ask what that front end cost

Sorry, I'm chiming in late...
My touring setup:
The tank bag now has a GPS mount on the front, and power outlets inside:
I also have a ventura rack not picture above, which will hold a small tool box and a small cooler.
Wolfman Expedition Tank Bag http://www.badweatherbikers.com/buell/messages/384 2/339295.html?1205442665
This tank bag is huge! It fits the contours of the Manta tank very well, and still allows for gas fillups without adjusting anything.
Rev Pack Tour Pack Seat Bag http://www.badweatherbikers.com/buell/messages/384 2/319850.html?1199924141
This bag is absolutely gigantic! It is shaped so that it hangs down on either side of the seat. This adds the storage of small saddle bags, while making the install super easy. It hugs the sides of the bike so it is VERY stable, even without any straps. Add the two straps benieth the seat and this thing isn't going anywhere.
Ventura Rack rear rack system from American Sport Bike. I love it. So conveinent for ANYTHING! Add the grab handle and it's not even noticeable. The girlfriend loves it too! Just the thought that she can't slide off the seat (anymore) is very reasuring.

Thanks for sharing the Rev Pack info.
I just looked at their web site www.revpack.com and saw the Tour Pack.
Looks like the hot set up for carrying lots of stuff in a compact package.
That design will centralize the mass quite nicely if the heavy dense stuff is put in the lower part of the "saddlebags".

And the Rev Pack stuff is VERY resonably priced!
All the materials are waterproof, heavy duty, and hand made by a small US company.
I went ahead and bought the rain cover too just incase of heavy rain.
It's large enough to hold my tent and sleeping bag, a pair of clothes or two, along some basic tools and tire pump.
