    Howdy folks I did a search and it seems lots of VFR owners are using the Cortech 2.0 saddlebags and the Cortech super 2.0 tailbag setup on earlier versions. Has anyone had luck on a 2015 8th gen? I have changed the exhaust for a Delkevic carbon shorty which is several inches lower - 4 or 5 I'm betting - than the stock exhaust so I am thinking the clearance and heat issues will work. I'd love the Honda hardbags but at over $1k per set and the three bag cortech setup at only $270, it seems a no brainer. Thanks in advance for anyone with information. By the way if anyone is thinking of going with the Delkevic carbon shorty, do it. It sounds great and no power commander was needed.

    Never heard them mentioned before I’m afraid.

    No help here on the 2.0. I use soft luggage and mine are Viking soft bags. They mainly make Harley cruiser luggage but they have a set of soft sport bags and they were pretty cheap to buy and for the money not bad. I have had them for 2 yrs now. I did use Cortech years ago but again for the money I like these Vikings better. Seem to be a little more rugged.
