    put something on and stay in that position.
    no. Since the saddles and the luggage carriers are so different, it isn't a bolt on. You CAN swap the GS saddle set up for the GSA saddle set, it has been done and the reverse has been done many times here. I think somewhere there will be a thread listing the parts needed or you might find a GSA owner looking to swap with you.

    Mounting a top case on the GS luggage carrier isn't the best idea-- they tend to break and crack. I have an extra carrier along with my spare final drive ready to ship just in case. If you do use one-- keep it light.
