Looks like the lads at bagster have already sorted out a tank cover for us to attatch the bagster bags

I WILL be getting one of these covers then i can use my tankbag on both my 999 & SF

Excellent product & well done Bagster for getting it made quickly

I see they dont have any pix of it. How is the one for your 999? Do they look good? I am using a hardshell that I rig'd up to work, but it doesnt fit as nice as I would like it and I can't put more in it then some small items. I would like something that I could pack clothes in for a trip.

Yes its a good product. There is a picture of the 999 one. They fit by using straps around the head tube & a couple of other straps & then is just a case of picking the bag you want.
These fix easily so they can be removed simply for fill up & carrying around, there is a hole in the tank cover for refilling.
I dont have many pics for it fitted but here is one i will try & dig some out

I have found the 1098 one which is essentially the SF fitting, you can get a fair assumption from that, and a man who fitted 2 bags together on an Aprilia Capo.
The joy of the product is when you sell your bike you can sell the cover for a good price & get a new one for your new bike & use your exsisting bags. I have a multi cover for sale , in black unused. I will stick it in the classifieds

Yes its a good fit & padded on the inside so no scratchy tanky.

I think they do red & black. I will be ordering one this week ready for the spring

I don't want to use a Bagster tank cover.

That looks better imo:

For the rear, I'm debating between Kriega US-30 system: http://www.kriega.com/pages_uk/us20/US20-topframeset.html

or Cortech saddlebags:

or Bagster saddlebags:

But wonder if these rear systems really fit the Streetfighter's tail properly... Anybody knows?

I've got the tourmaster tailbag and friend has the saddlebags. My feeling is the tail is too small for the tourmaster stuff, the saddlebags might work, but I've tried mounted the tailbag and it just feels too precarious as the tail is so small, I did try it with the seat as opposed to the cover but still not sure I'd want to take a long trip with it.

I bought an eclipse tank bag for the duc and not at all happy with it. Guess I'll just keep my tuono to tour on.

I just don't like the bagster system as it basically covers up one of the nicest design features of the bike, the tank.

I have the Kriega US20+10 and in my opinion it fits and looks great. I ve mocked up how the US20+10+10 would look and i ll buy another 10, i am pretty sure it fits well too. Sorry no pics

HOw does that mount? It'd be nice for around town but won't be able to carry my sz 13 tennis shoes in it I don't think ;)

14"x10"x6" at the widest points. My size 10 fit with plenty of room left.
The bag comes with velcro straps but I opted to cut them off and do a hand mount by sacrificing a rear seat, made a plate to sitin between and bolt it to it. When I don't need it, just turn the key and the whole assembly comes off and the tail goes back on in less than a minute.

Ventura in New Zealand have a system now, good systems :) http://www.ventura-bike.com/fitments.aspx?modelid=1048
I had a Ventura rack fitted when I boughtthe bike new. (I've used Ventura racks on my Tuonos and my Brutale). Not for everyone, because they do significantly raisethe centre of gravity, but I do a lot of touring (or more correctly, multi-day rides), and the rack is very convenient.

On my previous bike (Bimota DB6),the underseat exhaust made fitting a rack impossible, so I used Oxford panniers (Warning when using panniers: make sure EVERYTHING that may come in contact with the panniers is covered by protective film -contact film is perfect; and won't harm the paintwork); otherwise the rubbing of the bags will chip the paintwork. I also glued leather to the outside of the bags; but suede would have been better (obtainable from leathercraft shops)

The only prob with Ventura is that the rack is fugly; even the underseat brackets are unsightly; but can be removed without too much trouble. I leave the brackets on, because I use the rack so often.
