Looking for some bag ideas

Hey, I have a 2005 vn750 and I'm trying to get ideas of what bags would look best on it. Any ideas?

Yes. As many have said the best bags for your ride are the ones that you like best. Some here prefer hard bags and others prefer the more traditional leather but satisfaction will only be achieved if you get what you like. There are positives for each selection. Do a search for all the treads here on this particular topic and you will find listings of sources for bags and pictures of different styles on our particular bike.

On a side note you should introduce yourself under the Newbie portion of the forum and let us know a bit about your ride plus your experience riding and wrenching. You could also include where you are from as there may be a member close by.

I have throw over bags......."quickly removed"? well, that depends on your idea of "quickly". lol

but hey, Vulcan2000 is right.....there is +&-'s to both soft and hard bags. but it really comes down to what you like,want and works for you. it's your bike, do as you will and forget what others say.....believe me, that everyone has something to say! lol

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

Many hard bags are in fact quickly removable. The hard cases on BMW's, the Concours and many ST bikes remove quickly with a key. The bags on my FJR not only unlocked from the bike with a key, they had handles, and if you didn't want to take them off...they came with soft made to fit liner bags that you could pack your stuff in and remove from the case instead.
A few here have installed Givi bags that remove quickly. Those that install those cheaper Chinese hard cases that bolt to the bike might want to consider making removable liners for them like the FJR used....as this makes them very useful for traveling.

Honestly on a daily basis I found having a "tail case" much more useful than having side cases.
