my set up is similar to yours, all the camping stuff go's in 40lt bag on seat, personal stuff in panniers, i made a frame for panniers to rest on

That looks better than an OEM supplied product  :031:

and a lot better than a WD welded lashup  :034:

I may convert back to soft luggage too, it's always a dilemma. I would prefer a single horseshoe shape bag that you just throw on and rip off at stops but the quality ones cost insanely, like 700 Euros insanely.

If I have to do it at some point, I would consider the mounting point SHAD uses. They slip a tab in between the fairing and the subframe and use the bolt of the passenger grab rail.

Have been using a 40lt Jofama bag for a few years now on many different bikes, easy to fit and always stays put.

So I went to Gro▀glockner, got back alive and spent the next days on beaches and took a cable car ride. Also, meet my $3.50 SnapJack(r)(tm) alternative, lifts both front and back end for chain lubing and tire inspection.

Mouth watering for all of us stuck here in old blighty  :019:

Must admit, I do like the look of that full SHAD luggage, almost better than the OE stuff  :37:

That SHAD setup is Okay...ish for one-up, it is the budgetest option available and not very spacious. The SH40 Cargo has an integrated top rack but in retrospect I would choose a rackless case and mount their sold-separately metal rack (tie-down points on the plastic one are limited). The SH23 panniers are small and have no carry handles, but then again, they are real cheap compared to SH36. A crazy cargo setup would be SH36 + SH52 with a rack :)
