The best public road bike ever, indeed. Love mine. I don't see getting rid of it until they come out w/a premium 800 cc version. Still waiting...

They look like Givi Trekker bags to me.

Yep, they're Givi Trekkers, we went for the 33 litre boxes as we thought they suited the bike well. They do a 46 litre version as well but they looked a bit huge on the bike, and bigger than we needed.

My wife had an 07 Mk1 in silver before she had a new Mk2.

That's because most of us on here are Americans and we didn't get silver. Or '07's for that matter.
I don't think our friendly neighbors in the Great White Nort' got them either.

I think the silver looks great BTW.

The MkII models look nice too!
