    Hi there, the bike looks great! Just wondered what luggage you are using on the back of the seat? Looks really good!

    Thanks.

    Iím using sw-mototech pro series tank ring and micro bag, and their pro tail bag.  I thought they matched the colors and lines well. I looked at running side bags but just didnít like the look of them. 
    These are nice and sturdy, but pricy.  They make a weather proof version to I think.

    Thanks for coming back to me. Had a look on SW Mototech's website and the installation video shows that the bag wraps around the rear of the bike, can you confirm that it doesn't obscure the brake light as in the video (although it's a different bike being used) looks like it would cover over where the Trident's brake light is!

    One other quick question... I can see you've removed the rear pegs, where did you buy the 'Scout' trim piece to cover up the holes?!

    Thanks again,

    Dave

    The bottom of the bag that has the sleeve fits pretty snug on the seat section. Doesnít obscure the brake light any. I also have an Ermax seat cowl and have used the bag with it. It works but the bag shifts a tad on its painted smooth surface vs against the seat fabric.
