I'm using the SW Motech crash bars. They fit well, are effective, and seem to complement the lines of the bike. I also use Cortech Series bags. I've just always preferred soft bags. Seems you can usually stuff just one more thing in them. They go on and off easily and have held up well. I was worried at first that the rubber pad might melt on the exhaust heat shield (stock), but it hasn't.
I went with the rare JCW hardbags....I got all large and they fit on the Vicious cycle GIVI frames. Lots of storage but the bike is now pretty wide. No complaints, though. (If you do get the JC Whitney bags, search for coupons before you buy, you can save substantial $$)
Got my crash bars second hand from another V Strommer here.
