I bought a nice 30l Ogio tail bag, which is fantastic but obviously no good for two-up. Ogio makes companion saddlebags that collectively make a serious 3-piece kit that would hold weeks' worth of stuff. I'll probably end up with either that or the Givi hard panniers that Hitchcock has on the site. Those look solid. Each of the hard panniers is 20l and since they rest on a frame, they don't conflict with the pipes apparently. But they're not soft panniers, which is what the OP was asking about, I understand.


If (when) I get an Interceptor, I will probably go the same route that your taking. Hitting the NYC bike show today and will give it a more serious look.

You can cut the tabs that go to the top shock bolts off with no problem, they are still rock solid.  Those shock bolts are so tight that is virtually impossible to get them out and back in without screwing up the shallow indents in them for the hex wrench and having to resort to a pipe wrench and ugly buggered-up bolt heads.  Also, on my Interceptor I had to replace my rear turn signals with shorter ones to eliminate interference with these mounts.

I want to see those mounts without the bags on them ;D

My bags are only removable by removing 12 bolts that hold the bags to the mounts. See, it's like this here:  I don't consider any bike without decent saddle bags and a windshield worth squat, so I never intend to remove them.

Fair enough. I have great bags and windshield on my Triumph but I like the ability to get naked with the Interceptor. I was really just curious about how those mounts are mounted.

If I had those bags I'd want to be able to remove them (& probably  put them back on ebay :).)
