I'm looking to do a long trip and want to put on some decent storage so was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for saddle bags. I've found a number of options for tank bags but haven't seemed to be able to see any nice options for saddle bags. Thanks.

I had a chance to check out the Cortech sportbike saddlebags and the Ogio saddlebags. Both also have a tail bag that works with the saddlebags. If I had to buy them right now I would probably go with the Ogio. They seemed to be very well made,have a nice profile and a rain cover attached.

I have the Cortech Tribag system (saddlebags w/tailbag) and I love it. I did a 6k and a 4k mile trip with them. The only thing I didn't like were the rain covers, if you don't get them just perfect the wind will rip them. :mad:

I've also been looking for bags. The Ogio ones do seem like a good choice. I've owned other Ogio products and have been very satisfied with their quality.

Does anyone know of some hard luggage options? I've got a 2010 in white/orange. I doesn't have to match, black or grey would be fine.
