    Thanks very much for this post and picks. I am waiting on delivery of my 2014 VFR800 and was wondering what the panniers looked like on the bike. It's nice to see the mounting system in action. I really love the idea that the bike looks stock once the bags are removed.

    Yes the bike looks real good with factory bags. They are the first factory removable bags I've seen that look like they can hold some stuff in them. Most are to small for my liking. Nice buy.

    They look very well integrated and will certainly do the trick. I think you can honestly ask: "Honey, do these bags make my ass look fat?" You can do some serious touring with those puppies.

    Hard saddle bags are great but wow, when you put them on....

    'Its all out that bass no treble'...... What a wide behind. I've seen riders clip their own bikes because they didn't realize how wide their bike is with hard luggage.

    That's true, but you learn after a while. Plus there is nothing like having hard bags. Easy on/off/get into, hold a lot and water proof. PLUS they hold your bike off the ground when you fall over with it.
