Here's my SV1000 ST. SW-Motech quick-lock panniers and top rack, Givi cases, home made luggage rack and backrest.

IMO it makes a great sport-touring platform, with a definite emphasis on sport rather than touring. You might have to throw quite a few parts at it to get it comfortable. I added lower pegs for the pillion, Sargent seat and sheepskin butt pad, Heli bars, MRA vario touring screen.
