I just ordered a vivid black '11 Muscle while I'm here in Iraq, due to return home and pick it up in November. Meanwhile I'm about to start ordering goodies for it :) I'd love to see pics of luggage folks have attached to their V for roadtrips. I'm not building a bagger, I just want to be able to throw the old lady and some luggage on the back and haul off a few hundred miles for the weekend when the mood strikes. I see TONS of different bags out there, just looking for pics of what looks good and fits well on a v rod.

Thanks!

hard H/D bags, H/D rack bag, medium/large bikers friend bag

Riding a passenger if you really want any amount of storage at all you are going to have to consider saddlebags.....a lot of this depends on how long you will be gone and how heavy you pack. I go for up to 7 days at a time and am a very heavy packer

Thanks for the pics everyone. I love the look of the Muscle hard bags, but at this point I don't want to go with a hard mount bag. The bagger look isn't my deal, but you've pulled it off nicely whlmn4evr.

You'll be packed in seconds waiting for wife to put makeup on her face .

I guess thats most likely what I'll do. I've got a design in mind for some quick removal bag/backrest/sissy bar mounts that should look pretty good, but I don't exactly have a way to act on the design until I get back to the states. I could draw it up in cad, but without a bike here to make measurements from that'd be pretty tough as well....

Thanks. I can handle a few minutes for changeover, I just don't want to mount somehting that will leave open holes or ugly hardware still on the bike when I go to take it off. I guess most likely what I'll do is get a sissy bar bag that I can just stap to the backrest when I want to haul off on a trip with the old lady.
