Saddle bags

Hi I was thinking of getting a saddlebags just to use for riding since backpack kinda stress my back and make riding u pleasant... any recommendations??

I saw kriega US-20 n US-30... but the problem with that is theres nothing to hold the strap onto the bike when removing the rear passenger seat...

Any recommendation would be nice.

I had the SW-Motech Blaze on my Monster which also fit the Panigale with the right brackets which I was thinking of buying at that time. You'll be hard pressed to find better quality than these.

I don't know the Kriega bags but one significant feature of the SW-Motech design not found on any panniers that I've looked are the brackets. These are next to invisible when the bags are off the bike.

Try to spot the brackets on this Monster?

I dont see it in ur picture.. but the link u sent here shows it like a stick under its tail.. which I didnt like that look or nervous about it due to the heat coming from the underbody exhaust...

That's exactly why the engineering of SW is awesome. Those sticks you mentioned (which prevent the bags from flopping around) are removed when the bags are off. You just snap them back in when you mount the bags. The only part of the bracket visible on the Monster photo is the female portion where those rods snaps into combined with another clip to hold the bags forward.

Depending on length of trip, I have an assortment of bags I run. A bungee net is great for keeping stuff on top and outside of the bags (if I put my tennis shoes up there, I put them in a small grocery bag first in case it rains). I use Kreiga's mount kit for the Panigale tail, and rok straps in case I need to really make sure things will stay (but I mainly used those before getting the mount kit!)

Kreiga 5L (day trips--take small tools and/or bottle of water, etc), 20L (can pack for a few days if you're careful), 30L (can pack more).

SW Motech saddle bags (mainly used for odd shaped items and/or tools, I put a tire plug kit/compressor in the bottom of one).

Ducati Performance Tailbag (perfect shape for spare visors, snacks, etc). <<---- this is used if I do not have a Kreiga bag mounted to the tail. Mainly I use this during the week if I commute, but I also took it to the tail of the dragon for whatever I needed during riding that day.


Both the saddle bags and the DP tail bag are expandable. SW Motech bags go from 14L to 21L. DP says 8L, but I'm not sure if that's condensed or zipped out expanded.

I have a very small tool kit I take with me, that I bought at a grocery store years ago. It has a ratchet, all metric sockets, the normal phillips head and flathead screwdriver bits, etc. It has saved me a few times, if only because I wouldn't have been able to take fairings off otherwise!! (if you just want that ability, a ratchet + 3mm and 4mm allen sockets are what you want).


edit: by the way, the pic of the back of the bike on the Dragon--if you look close, you can see the mount for the bags under the tail by the passenger pegs. Same with the pic with the small 5L bag on the back of the bike.

Interesting info in this thread. Does having the passenger seat cowl assembly effect the way these bags work? Specifically the dp performance one and the sw motech ? Also does having the nrc tail tidy with the license plate moved down where passenger pegs were present any issues?

The seat cowl is definitely not a problem although you may want to cover it with a microfiber to prevent rubbing the paint. I don't think the NRC tail tidy is an issue either as it doesn't have turn signals sticking out. Not sure about the license plate placement however.
