Nice video, I have the same set of bags. Excellent for trips on the Pani, holds a lot of stuff and no need to wear backpack which can be tiresome. Also, these bags have been able to withstand some high-speed runs, well into the triple digits without any problems.
I agree, these are a MUST HAVE for any Pani owner.

Thanks for this. A couple of questions -

1)Turn indicators. I have the Rizoma tail tidy but used the stock indictors (but with slightly shortened stalks - they don't stick out quite as far as stock). How much room is there? I"ve looked at this setup but my concern is that they won't fit with my current indicator setup.

2)Waterproof inserts. How are they made in terms of fit? Are they fitted to be top access while in the saddlebags?

from memory USA is using the large stock which wont fit but if you had euro indicator is be a nice squeeze.. i also use rizoma tail tidy...

question 2.. its just a large waterproof bag meant to go in the top access...

I never mounted the passenger pegs on my R--do you think the mounting bracket will attach correctly without the passenger pegs?

FYI - Motostarz has this on sale(bags/liners/mounts) for $339.62 with free shipping/no tax to the lower 48 if anyone is interested. They're currently on backorder but the estimated lead time is only 3 weeks. I picked up a set yesterday.

Cheers.

bags come with spacers so you dont need the passenger pegs... so yes it would work like as you see without pegs.
Thanks from roadster

BB have you tried mounting with your full akra fitted ? Does it work ?

Thanks for the review. I have heard from another source the bags work well on the 1199.
