I have a set of Nelson Rigg expandable saddlebags that I use when needed. With the fuel filler located where it is on the 650, you need to have easy access. I unhook a bungee cord, lift the bag up, and fuel. Here's how I rolled to Hungry Mother last September, on my '06. yeah, I overpacked!

I have 2009 SilverWing. I use Ogio soft saddle bags. I like them because they go over my passenger seat.  They are easy to take on and off.  The bag is not to deep so they clear the exhaust quite well.  They also expand out if you need more room.  When I am on a trip. I take them off when I reach the motel since they cannot be locked.  They are easy enough to carry in.

The rain covers aren't the best.  I usually put my gear in waterproof stuff sacks.  So when it rains I know my gear stays dry.  Hard cases are expensive and hard to find for the SW.  My WP duffle bag Fits nicely on top of the straps and seat.  I secure them both to straps attached to the passages handle bars.

Does anyone know if the same adapter plate for the Bestem top box will work on both the 2011 Burgman 400 and the 2011 Burgman 650.

Uhhhh yeah.  This is how I packed for a week in Cumberland Falls.  Notice the lack of a top box etc ;)


All kidding aside that looks like a nice way to roll.

I was going to save up and buy Maggie a top box for Christmas but somehow I don't think she'd see much use for it.  I had a saddle bag arrangement on my B-650 and. Rome was the fuel filler door, so be careful.  Truely between underwear and tie down bags I could get by without saddle bags.  Gigi makes racks and side cases for the Burgmans, but they are real expensive.

saddle bags on a scooter ... ugh, I feel about saddle bags on a scooter about like Maggie does a top case on a scooter ...

Packed for a 6 day trip .....


of course, she is wrong about the top case thing ... 
so I could be wrong about the saddle bag thang

Of course everybody's storage needs are different I reckon .... I don't need a lot of hair care products.

My profile pic is a picture of mine. Side bags and a trunk. Just my opinion but as long as the side bags aren't too big I am in on it. Small side bags and a larger trunk works out well and looks good doing it. That and it is the faster white version.

Used saddle bags briefly, now have 50 liter duffel. Wish there were hard cases to fit the Reflex.
