I know a lot of people really believe this but it's not always true, sometimes you just pay too much for what you get.

For instance, I'm getting my gas for $2.87/gallon and I'm pretty sure it's the same stuff that everyone else is overpaying for.

Nightshift Thanks for the pics, Personally I think they look fine. From what everyone says it sounds like only the Givi racks will fit. Am I getting that right?

I haven't ridden with my wife on the back with bags mounted but she's sat on the bike and she can reach the pegs okay. I don't know what it would be like for an extended time but she didn't seem to think it would be a problem. She stands about 5' even so a taller woman may have a bit more or less room.
+1 on this. Little dremel work was all it took for a nice tight fit. Sorry about the pic quality. It was a quickie with the cell phone.

Diver9543 I have the JCW cases and like them. They do fit tight but I haven't trimmed them. Actually got lucky and two of the cases use the same key. They are the ones that I use on the side and the other i use as a top case. My wife likes them as she can hold on to the handles as we ride. She has plenty of room for her feet. Trickier to dismount than our Goldwing. She is learning, well, truth be told the Vee is for me and the SE is for we. I will try some day to get pictures.
