vespadaddy Posted January 22, 2015 Share Posted January 22, 2015 I'm getting ready to start negotiating earnestly to buy one of these bikes. I'm having a tough time deciding on a luggage strategy. I like the stock Yamaha bags, but I hate that they won't fir a full face helmet. Then I consider the FJR bags, but I'm not sure any year FJR had bags that have paint that will match the charcoal grey FJ-09? Do any FJR bags match the grey FJ-09? I think these bags fit, after installing the factory lower bag mount. Another option is a set of Shad cases. Cheaper than Yamaha's bags, and will hold a full face helmet. I don't think the mounting is quite as clean as the OEM bags, but the bags themselves are more useful, as they hold a helmet. I would like to figure this out before I buy, so I know if I need to ask for an accessory discount at the time of purchase. A final option is a set of factory FJ-09 cases, AND the use of a trunk or topcase (though the lawyers advise against it). In any event, I don't want to own a motorbike with hard luggage that won't hold a helmet in one of the cases, Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
