1800F with hard bags??

Has anyone done this and are there any pics? I'm toying with the idea and a bigger windscreen...can't see myself doing the whole fairings thing...maybe do a fender swap as well but that I'm not 100% on at all yet. TIA.

NO! Don't do it! You have been an inspiration with your
-rear fender clean up
-solo seat driver back rest
-gnarly looking Cooper Zeon tire

And now you want to be a bagger? Can't you just wear a back pack or use a tank bag?

I have seen pictures on here. It was like an accident- I didn't want to look but I had too!

Wow....that is butt ugly. Thanks for talking me out of it. I'll just use the ugly bags I have now if I need em and otherwise keep it clean.

Also, I had no idea I was such an inspiration with the F'ers out there. I did recently (as in today) add a third brake light though. I like the two lights back there, but I've heard a lot of stories about guys getting hit around here lately and figured a slim LED under the fender as some have done before me might not be a bad idea. I just hope it lasts. I got the light for $5.00 shipped on eBay.





Not much but every little bit helps.
