Im looking for a good picture of a raven with the yamaha oem saddle bags mounted, I can't seem to find much here of people mentioning these, is there a problem I should know about before investing?.... I know I know - bags detract from the bike, but they do serve a purpose.

I had a set, they are fine they just don't hold a lot of stuff, a pair of sneakers and they are full. Plus you have to unzip them all the way to get in and out of them.

I want the saddle bag that goes on the front forks.... I dont like the looks of the side bags! all I want is room for some clear shades, a bottle of water, and some other small misc things..

What you want is called a tool bag, I picked up s nice leather one from Xtreme Riders out of Columbus, GA, I'm pretty sure they have a website

The OEM Star bags are not bad, could use to be bigger. Had them on all year seem to be holding up pretty well, but I keep waxing them every time I wash the bike down so maybe that is helping.

Most all fork bags look like they don't belong but they do serve a purpose, I don't much care for the way mine looks but it is what it is

I use a small mounted tool tube. (similar to the billet ones HD riders pay $150+ for) I payed $22 with mounting hardware & shipping... Otherwise the tube by itself is like $6
Pretty discrete, nobody notices it!

My contents: hex wrenches, ratchet & a couple sockets, a few zip ties, philips screwdriver, tire gauge, spare fuses, extra earplugs, small LED light, magnesium stick, small knife, & 1 extra spark plug.

If I go on a longer ride, I'd carry more in a pack probably.
