I don't know much about the DX bags other than they are likely just like all the other inexpensive chinese bags that you find online. Your only real problem will be finding a way to mount them to the bike.

As for modular helmets, I think in this area I would stay away from the inexpensive models. To build one that works well and is actualy safe, likely takes some money, so I am not sure how far I would trust a 79 dollar one here. There ars some good full face helmets at that price, but if I was going to buy one it likely be a Shoei Multitec or a Nolan..... which are pretty pricey.

Am not sure what your desire for one stems from, but in most cases you are better off with a good Full Face over a Modular or Flip-Up helmet.

I don`t know anything about the Dx bags,but take a look at these Mutazu`s: http://www.mutazu.com/products.php?c...=10&s=prod.php

The GAs are the biggest at 7 1/2 inches thick, but the LNs (at 6 1/2 inches) and the FYs (at 5 1/2 inches) have built in LED signal lights. It is a bad thing to spend too much for something, but it is often worse to spend too little, because it doesn`t do the job and you have to replace it and buy what you should have in the first place. Cheap pleather (plastic leather) bags are going to sag and rest on/melt on your exhaust eventually, especially if you ride a lot in a hot weather state like GA, where you live. If you can`t afford the good bags now, buy a $20 backpack from Wally World, tie it to the seat and use it for luggage and a backrest, while you save up enough scratch to get the bags you really want/need.

Here is a threadshowing installation on a vn. https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthrea...ht=mutazu+bags

Regarding helmets, check out a video on utube, with Jay Leno talking with a rep from the Arai helmet company about proper fitting of a helmet. Sorry, I can`t find it right now.
