Central Alberta here. Really enjoying my CB650F so far. Owner for a week. Will be mounting some Shad SH23 bags this week. Bought this bike to tour on.

Post pics when you get them installed. I ordered some this summer but they were on back-order for forever. They finally called me after weeks of waiting. I ignored them and now I'm on the fence as to whether or not I want them. When I tour next summer I may decide they're a necessity but until then I would love to see what they look like on a CB650F.

For sure, Devilsfan. I have the SH23 bags at this point. They are very nice. I just don't have the brackets. The wrong ones were ordered and the correct ones are on the way. I was able to fit my Kriega US20 packed with two large towels into the SH23. But I think I'll probably pick up an Osprey 20l drybag to use instead as there's a lot less buckles on the outside of the bag. I want to point out that the Shad hard bags are waterproof. I'm just looking at the Osprey drybags because they would make a cheap inner bag.
I took my Bonneville to Yellowstone National Park this summer. We did 2800km in 4 days. I packed everything in a Kriega US20 and a US5. It'll be nice to have essentially twice the storage space of that plus still have the option to use the two Kriega bags.

I have the Shad 40L top case with Shad brackets on mine. It holds my wet weather gear, tool kit and my small grip bag. When I go to work (which I've only ridden twice - Florida rain season) I've throw my backpack over my shoulders. If I had the side cases I could move everything from the top case to the side and then throw my backpack in the top case - thus nothing on my back!
Also, when you're all installed, if you can take some pictures with just the brackets on. I like the 3P system as they go with the bike's lines, unlike those Givi monstrosities!

I've had the brackets and hard luggage on now for almost a week. I really like how it looks and it's extremely convenient. I want to point out to all that I purchased the 650F to tour on and am looking forward to a trip to Alaska in the next few years. I've added some pics in the media gallery.

Hello fellow Canucks! I know we're in the dead of winter.. but i'm already crazy excited for the spring!

I'm wondering if any of you have been to or can recommend some good racing schools/ Courses in South Western Ontario. I want to learn to get the most out of my bike and eventually do some track days. So that hopefully I can get these illegal impulses out of my system safely, lol.

Let me know what you think, Cheers
