Anyone found some cool luggage for the Anniversario? I see what Guzzitech has in it's store but if I put on the C-Bow hardware I would want chrome for sure. Also looking for brown options potentially... But aluminum hard case is not out of the question. Just looking to see what everyone else is finding?

I'm looking to go with a vintage look and am about to order Craven "Comet" cases in black. I will figure out how to custom mount them on a black hepco becker loop luggage rack. Google up Craven Industries. They are in England (GB). Their cases were popular with old Triumphs and Nortons.

I'm not sure chrome would be the best choice for brackets. To me the chrome makes them more obvious, the black brackets will virtually disappear in the eyes of most. Hey, but whatever works best for you.

That's actually a good point... hadn't thought of that.

Dude I pulled up these saddlebags and really like their styles... so many are sold out though :(

I bought a pair of bags from Pack Animal out of Seattle last summer for my Anniversario. They fit perfect, look vintage and I put them to the test with a 3 week road trip. They're great bags. Pack Animal is a great little company that hand makes all their goods. check them out.

I understand form and "look."

That said, unless you really just care about that and don't use bags for function, I think you might regret in short order anything but hard cases.

Those good-looking "vintage" bags don't hold much, don't like rain, and have fasteners that get dodgy fast.

Ride only in nice weather and only carry the lightest and smallest of items; well, OK. But I started off with handsome OEM leather bags for my EV some years ago. Loved the look. And I know how to take care of leather. "Real life" and "real riding" soon led to H-B hard cases. My Griso uses soft bags, but they are textile and handle weather fine.

As with all moto-things, YMMV, but consider https://www.guzzitech.com/store/category/body-n-bags/hepco-becker-body-n-bags/ or the like.

my dealer gave me 20% off the HB full set up when I bought the V7-3. all 3 hard bags and racks and center stand. I'm very pleased with them just like the bags that were on my 98 EV and still are performing well 19 years and 190000 miles later.
Now on my 2015 V7 in Az where they never see rain I have some old fake leather Willie and Max bags that go back to 1989. I had to make a mount to keep them from hitting the rear wheel and they look OK. BUT! I wish I had just ponied up for the hard ones on it too every time I need to open them.

I’ve been looking at these myself (for v7iii Milano), but have a couple concerns (apart from the price tag, ouch) — would love to get your thoughts.

One is the over-the-seat connection straps. They don’t look particularly comfortable to sit on. Have you used them with passengers? How’d it go? Did you run the back strap over the seat or over the rear fender (or on anniversario, the passenger grab handle) to make room? I would think for single rider the ideal would be further forward over the seat, and for passenger, over the rear fender or grab handle? But the strap itself seems built to width, and not really adjustable — maybe get 2 lengths? Idk. Any chance you can post some photos? Would love to see your setup. :)

One more question (sorry): any noticable damage caused by rubbing against the rear shocks either to the bags or the shocks? Thanks

I'll throw my V7-III Stone into the mix with Givi E21 hard bags fitted to the C-Bows.

The lids have since been repainted to match the rest of the pannier.
