I don't need to order the parts with the bike but the dealer is giving me a pretty decent discount on any extras I get so I am just trying to figure out who to go with.
I personally don't see a problem with the OEM luggage. If the locks are fiddly then push down on the friggin lid then turn the key, seems rather simple to me. Surely a little thin key won't turn the lock mechanism with the lid under pressure from a water tight seal gasket. I've had Jesse bags
in the past so I will deal with the OEM bags and be happy. At least my keys won't be the same as everyone else's. And of course they look the best IMO. I don't need 55 gallon drums hanging off the side of the bike to travel.
I am planning on going OEM.
Go ahead pull the trigger...
