Are you talking about these? SW-MOTECH Bags-Connection Blaze Sport Saddlebag System BMW S1000RR, '10-'11 - TwistedThrottle.com

I have a set and they are great!! They are very stable, had them on and loaded down at triple digit speeds without a problem. I have made several long trips with them.

In fact I may be selling them due to them not fitting my HP4. The long exhaust is in the way. I am disapointed as they were great when taking trips.

They are great bags. I had to modify mine because of my exhaust so they wouldn't melt but if your stock you will love them. And all it took to mod them for my long pipe was some heat shield and high heat paint.

Saddlebags

Yep. The MOTECH bags just might be first choice with the mounting brackets and the good feedback.

Not too keen on a new exhaust for now. Bike runs like a beast and looks great with its shorty polished muffler.

Thanks.

Will this work if I want to keep the passenger foot pegs?

Yes, they are actually designed for a stock bike with the passenger foot pegs on. I just bought a set now, and the fit like a charm with the passenger footpegs on

Don't want to be picky, but are these bags waterproof or do they come with covers?
