    If want quick access to items under the seat, these type of bag mounts are a pain.

    I use something very similar from T-bags (on my 2018 Eldorado) and I found it necessary to fabricate a couple of
    plates to keep them from rubbing (fenders , wheels etc.) . Easy to remove for shorter rides . Peter

    Thanks. I'm considering them as I don't need that much storage more than 80 or 90% of the time :)

    Thanks...I have seen it before but was not sure if it fits a 2017 Touring. Some of the accessories don't include 2017 T and later models and hence the hesitation.

    The Touring already comes with panniers, I thought? Have you lost yours?

    Yes they do and I got them taken off. I'm looking for something which can be put on and off easily.

    I ended up buying and using them on a 950mi trip... I'm happy with them. It's definitely smaller than the original panniers.

    That looks great!!! I think you made a good choice. Soft luggage is lighter easer to deal with, drop it, toss it anywhere and not a big deal. The trick is just setting up the right mounting system. I run with a similar set-up, except there Vetter soft side bags which I purchased new 50 years ago and still in good shape and use them all the time, and also have the large Vetter tank bag.

    They look great and practical. I have a Eldorado and use a Kriega 30 litre bag strapped to the passenger seat whenever on a tour and add two 10 litre ones to the side of the 30 litre if needed, it does become cumbersome. I would love to have a go these saddle bags but nothing permanent like C bows etc. I like the Eldo lines as they are.
    How do these attach or hang so that they don't slip to one side? How do you keep them from chaffing the mudguard. Whilst these are for the Custom your comments would be of much help to see how would they go on a Eldo.

    Cheers

    I took them off recently and I don't have a picture. It should fit much better on the Eldo as the passenger seat is much narrower. I used all the 6 straps and the Velcro overlap. The Velcro in my case did not have a lot of overlap as the seat is very wide. The rear shock did touch the bags and I did not do anything for the mudguards. Maybe I should but I did not see much friction between them to worry about.

    Does having the MC full of luggage, can cause issues in bike handling, wobble issues in heavy winds and bad weather?

    Sorry, can't comment as I did not have that much load or ride in bad weather.

    I've looked around the web and I think I've found something lighter in weight, weather resistance, so that It'll much easier for me to carry luggage in hard wind and weather. Just wanted to know which of following would best suits the guzzi:

    1. https://gtmotocycles.com/collections/body-n-bags/products/h-b-legacy-courier-bags ($249.50) couldn't be able to find that how'll I set them up. Do I have to buy any mountings separately?
    Also, they've very expensive products on there, does anyone know a good place with lower pricings?

    2. https://www.vikingbags.com/viking-bonafide-large-brown-motorcycle-cafe-racer-saddlebags/ ($119.99) found a videos on how they'll be mounted it's pretty easy to set them up. also, the guy have talked about the quality too and it seems of good quality. Just wanna know has anyone tried them on Guzzi?

    Which is gonna be the best for my guzzi v7 iii? would appreciate any help or recommendations.

    Hi, Moto. Thanks any way, however, I haven't found anything that's saying you have to post specific about any model of guzzi, here on this forum. Cheers!

    I think you misinterpreted my intention , it had nothing to do with where you had to post, more to do with
    helping you get more responses , there are a lot more v7 owners than 1400 owners and hence a better chance
    getting answers . Hope that's a bit clearer :) .
