Question Soft tailbags for '07 650 in Vancouver

Where in Vancouver is the best selection for a snug fitting tailbag, possibly a small tail bag and larger one for trips. Modern has Kappa (hard) and mounting plate for $299. Is this the best place to look? I have only an hour or so on June 9th when I am in Vancouver to move a daughter back to the Okanagan. Only need a large bag a couple of times a year and like the look of soft luggage, but must fit well and be well made. Any advice is appreciated

And they're based in the Okanagan.

Question Motopak luggage

I'm leaving in 15 minutes (Saturday) to see some Motopak tail bags, the e- business is based just out of Kelowna and the owner said I could drop by and try fitment on my bike. I will stop at Yamaha and Valley Motosport and try some others for comparison and will post what turns out to be the best.

I bought Motopak bags for my last bike, a Yamaha FZ-6. They worked very well and the price was good too.

Couldn't find Ryan to see the tail bag, but did purchase a Kappa 46 litre box and mounting plate from Valley Motosport. Too big for daily use so will still be needing the smaller soft bag..Thanks Heavy
