Suzuki OEM Accessory Side Bags

I've done the obligatory search through the archives and haven't found anything on point...

Does anyone here have the Suzuki Side Bags that are OEM and sold by the dealers? If so, what are your opinions on these bags?

I've been looking (via internet) at these and would like to hear from the people that own these bags since there's not a lot of info or pix out there. Thanks!

I have em and am not a fan. They are pretty cheaply made and if given the option id probly go aftermarket. That being said for the amount i use em they do work fine but i think for the quality they are overpriced.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll check out a set of Givi side cases then.

That way, the side cases will match my top case!

I have the OEM bags and topcase - seem alright, but stick out too far.
They will only fit the Suzuki, so if you want to move them to another bike, or sell the bike without them - they become useless as there is no rack available to fit a different model/brand bike (AFAIK). Non-OEM cases can be moved to your next bike or sold separately, with only the rack becoming surplus.

abraxis....

If you get the Givi side cases, be sure to check out my thread on rekeying your top-case to match the new side cases before you buy new tumblers. Might save you a few $.
