On my first V-Strom (07) I put on a set of Givi Keyless, great bags and nice looking to. Well I must have bumped and ran into everything around me, at 45" wide it's a problem, or was for me. Plus the offset look of the bike just turned me off, I sold the racks and bags at a loss and never looked back. Now I just purchased a 2011 V-Strom and my biggest decision on buying the bike, or not, was side bags and if I could carry all the stuff I needed to carry with just a top box and a bag behind me on the seat. Well it's working so far and don't have to deal with the offset look or the wide stance of the bike. Why didn't they just put duel exhaust on the 650.
