Hey! What's wrong with ammo cans ;-)
Ya mean ya want hardbags and don't wanna look like a dumb redneck? ;-)
Here's a link to what KM's talking about
Seems like dirtrack has some hardbags on his bike and they look pretty nice...
Some more links (found with search "hard saddlebags")
From thread 988:
I finally got my Givi saddlebags and now have them mounted. I think they look great and I finally have lockable, removable, waterproof, hard cases on the bike.
GIVI USA will tell you that they do not sell any mounts that will work on the VN750. That is not exactly true. You do need to have the Kawasaki saddlebag supports first and then the rest is easy. You need to purchase the GIVI Model N150 Wingrack II (complete with turn indicators), a couple of 3 1/2 inch long x 5/16 inch bolts (with washers and nuts), a couple of 1 1/2 inch long x 5/15 inch bolts (with washers and nuts), and a couple of short plates that can be bent around the saddlebag support rods and bolted. With all of that, the Wingrack II bolts directly onto the Kawasaki saddlebag support at the top and you clamp it to the support rod at the bottom. It makes a very solid mount. The stock Kawasaki turn indicators will be in the way, so those are discarded. Connecting the GIVI indicators that come with the Wingrack II requires that you replace the Italian bullet male electrical connector with a smaller one to fit the stock Kawasaki female connector. Once you have all the right parts, putting this together is really pretty simple.
All the GIVI monokey saddlebags will fit on the Wingracks. I chose the E-21 bags as they are the best size for the VN750 and are not as outrageously expensive as some of the others GIVI makes.
The photos below show the installation.
Anything ya do'll require a bit of fabrication - don't ask what'll fit, ask what ya can MAKE fit!
Though I am partial to my ammo cans ;-)
No worries - I'm not offended, just flipping ya christmas cheer ;-)
Off to my parents house so the kid can open her pile of presents from grandma and grandpa ;-)
