They look a lot like the bags that Triumph sells.

They are - they are known as the "city bags" - bfd70 has the same ones on his bike (but in brown). I did a review of them somewhere:

The bag on the rack is just a day cooler, for keeping some water and a couple of sammitches in.

Long Beach Road, Big Pine Key.

All roads run out sooner or later where there isn't much land. At least one can ride year round.

Curious, how many miles to a tank are you guys getting from your stock Bonneville's? I would like a Bonneville (2010 Bonneville Black) for my next bike but I was just wondering how far I could typically get on a tank at 65 miles per hour?

On my not quite stock Bonnie (BC Sleeper pipes), I was getting about mpg on the highway (cruising about 70-75 mph) before on put on my windscreen. With the screen, on the highway, it dropped to 45-ish

Down driving is pretty low : 30-35 mpg. I ride screen-less around town.

It's a great bike! Regardless of mpg, get one.

Under the chrome, farkle, and plastic of every motorcycle, lives the heart of a Bonneville.
