Not the same as a ZX w/ bags..

And post some pics!
I love my bagged '14...
Mine is set up with a Corbin seat, MRA Touring screen, Givi V35's w/ SW Motech racks, and stacked Genmar/Heli risers (added by the previous owner). I also have a Connie seat, but prefer the Corbin...the Corbin will drop the seat height by about an inch and will reduce leg room, but I haven't felt the need for lower pegs yet. Also, I can add the backrest for the wife on the Corbin.
Comfort-wise, I can ride all day with no more comfort issues than I've had with any other bike (a little butt burn and ready to stretch the legs at around the third gas stop). My mileage has been steady at 38.5 mpg....I can get @ 190 miles out of a tank.
