Side Bags for 650

Can anyone tell me where I might be able to find some decent soft/hard bags for my wee? I presently live in Nrthern Alberta and other than the dealership, I can only find bags online and from the US...any help would be appreciated

Where in Northern Alberta are you?
I have a set of unused Nelson-Rigg bags that I got just before I found the ones I now have on.

check out the older, more square style givi bags (en35?). i got mine from www.sporttour.com and they're reasonably priced. the racks are not things of beauty when the bags are off but, the whole thing worked well (roomy and dry) on a recent trip from North Carolina to Montana.

I have the 42 litre Shad hard cases on my Wee, very happy with them. Was around 500 CDN for the bags and mounts.

Cheers!

tour pack

I just completed a 16000km trip from Toronto to Inuvik. I used a Tour Pak from Rev Pack in California. It sits like a saddle on the passengers seat. I put a small duffle bag behind it on the rack to carry my tent. The tour pack is the size of a small hockey bag and holds a lot. It also rides well - like a mini passenger. You don't even know you have it on. If you want to look at it just google Rev Pack.
Cheers
Bill
PS - costs about $100 and another$20 for a rain cover.:-D
