hard bags..what should I buy??

Just put natl. cycle Dakota windshield on and man I am enjoying cruising at80MPH..The bike seems more areodynamic now...Now I need some hard bags that do not require too many mods if someone has an idea,currently I have throwover bags but love this bike and want something that looks good and is functional...By the way my bike is stock and I get 55MPG and on a road trip get as much as 58MPG...I check mine on every fillup and usually get fuel arouynd 155 miles without hitting reserve...Mpg is one of the big attractions to this bike and of course the speed thet outshines most cruisers.I NEED HARD BAGS

i have a pair of givi e21 that are currently on my klr650. I am very please with them, so will be getting the bracket to install in the VN750. currently the VN have soft bags since new (03). This way i can transfer them at any time from bike to bike as needed, still keeping the soft ones for emergencies.

+1 on the Givi bags. Might be a bit more work to mount them, but they rock.

I went with the Mutazu GA bags--they are probably the most bang for the buck.

Another option is bags from LeatherLyke....they are roomy and well made, but pricey:

I have a set of the Leatherlyke contemporary bags on my 01 that I don't use much and would be interested in selling. There is a slight scuff on the RH bag. If anyone is interested just let me know.
