It intrigued me too. Until I rode one.

Then again, go for it if you dig it. Just not the bike for me.

I'm a big fan of the Cortech Dryver series. Uses ring lock to attach the bag to your gas cap. Kind of a PITA until you get the hang of securing it, but it's great after that.

Two different bikes, but I personally much prefer the Versys both as an everyday bike and a tourer.

YMMV.

There was a time when I did a 200+ mile commute eveyday. I went through several bikes, and the police Dyna worked great. For me anyway.

Straight bolt-on, no changes needed.

Mine was just vibey enough to be noticeable after awhile. The risers seem to have killed that in total. And, for me, it's much more comfortable to ride.

Not to pursue the oil thread, but I was really shocked at all of metal chunks and other klingons in the oil at the first change (300 miles) on the ZX.
