You could probably fit the Guzzi or Hepco-Becker mounts, and then use something along the lines of the universal mounting kit from Happy Trails to mount pelican cases, happy trails, or other flat-back type of bag you might think of or come accross.

Unless you want to go on a quest for these mounts, I'd agree with Courtney. Get some Hepco + Becker mounts and then go with the bags of your choice. H+B have other choices. The "Journey" bags aren't bad. Lots of others are adaptable to the H+B mounts, too. Then there is the Givi option...

Since getting my V-7 Classic(my 1st bike),I have noticed that riding a Moto Guzzi gives one a certain status. The implication seems to be that one who rides a Moto Guzzi is their own person and does not follow the crowds or fads. The Moto Guzzi owner is a connoisseur not taken in by hype . Just my observations so far.

Every one of my friends rides a Cruiser. I could not get into that kind of bike. 1 Year and 8,400 miles and I am still happy.

You may now be referred to as: "diplomatico di moto"

I'm a dual sport guy who swore off street bikes back in the early '90s after I almost killed myself on a FZ600 I got for free. Traded it for a WR250 after about a week. I hadn't swung a leg over a street bike since a friend brought over a new (then) Griso a couple years ago. Damn it was purty, so I rode it and thought if I were to get another street bike the Griso would be the one. Every time one of my buddies would show up with a new Harley or Triumph I'd ponder on the Griso.

Unfortunately my friend with the Griso was severly injured in a bike accident a while back. He wadded up his Aprilia 450 off road and asked if I'd like to buy his Guzzi. Guess I'm a "street bike" guy now.



Took off the bags yesterday and put on a tail tidy.
