I have also same bike and bag!
Be careful turn signals are not strong enough to be used as anchor points for the bag.
I put mine accross the seat so I use passenger grab as rear anchor points.

First Adventure Bike

I have had this bike for 3 weeks and it has just had the 1000Km service. This is the first non sport bike and is a change I should have made a while ago. Previous bikes: 2016 GSXS1000F, Gen 2 Hayabusa (7 years), Triumph Speed Triple 1050, Suzuki SV1000, and 50 years ago Yamaha 250, Francis Barnett 200.

The DL650 is a 2018 model with extras provided by the Suzuki dealer. The extras are shown in the photos and include: Crash bars (SW Motech), Bash Plate (SW Motech), Centre Stand (SW Motech), Radiator screen, Pirilli Scorpio 50/50 tyres, Givi Screen, Tank Pads, Side Stand Foot Extension, Oxford Heated Grips. I fitted: Battery charger connector, Heated Vest connector, Radar Detector with LED alert and Screamer, and Givi 15L Tank Lock Bag. Tie points are visible on the rack for Kreiga Bags.

I am really liking this bike and will ride it a lot more than the sports bike.
