If you need more fuel capacity, get a Safari.
The Giant Loop Great Basin has two built-in compartments to carry 1 liter water bottles.

I have a set of older style Wolfman bags, the ones that leak. I would just go with a Giantloop. Hard bags are nice, but not for this bike.

Yeah, nice looking, but you will break an ankle and/or destroy the box when you crash. Hell, you don't even have to crash to break an ankle on those.

Thats a good point I really see there are a lot of pro/cons for luggage but on the SE seams like the consensus is that the functionality of panniers is low im still torn but leaning toward the wolfman setup with the roto locks I just don't want to buy something only to find out it does not work thanks for all the good input guys

Wolfman setup with the Rotopax.

This was just the shakedown ride, didn't use the top duffel on this trip, but I do have it and it works great.

All of the Wolfman products I have used have been well thought out and well made, I have no hesitation recommending them.

They are home made and and sort of a copy of the discontinued B Briggs racks. They look like thisand work great for both sets of bags.

How do you like the bike with the raid designs fairing? I am still on the fence about getting one or just putting on a windshield .

It only looks like the Raid design on the front. It's actually a fairing made by an Italian fellow named Alberto Dottori who made it for a smaller KTM. Found it laying in a buddy's garage and thought it'd look better on my SE. So, a bit of fabricating of brackets and a lot of beer later and ... voila. I mean, presto. Works great for keeping the wind off the old chest at high speed and allowed me to make a dash board that holds the stock speedo, power outlet, additional light switch, and GPS. Added a bunch of weight to the front, but I live with it just fine.
