Do you find that they rub against you at all when you are on the bike? Like on your back or thighs? I've been toying with the idea of getting some of the Courtech Super 2.0 bags, but I've never used soft bags and when I see them mounted they look like they might move around and the SW-Motech Blaze with the brackets are just ridiculous in price. Maybe I'll make my own brackets for em.

I have not ran saddle bags on this bike; however, I have ran them on other supersport bikes. I have never had them rub against any part of my body. With that said, I would recommend a rear hard case over saddle bags. It adds weight to height which is not the best; however, it does not affect the width of the bike (important for us land splitters). They usually can be locked, and they are surely waterproof. My Cortechs allowed water to get in even with the rain cover things. They were useless after one day riding in the rain. Anyways, just some general feedback unrelated specifically to these bags.

They barely touch either side of my back while riding, not bad at all.

Having spent money on several "inexpensive" saddlebags over the years over many bikes I realised that I should have spent the money on one good set of bags instead.
Too many of those have failed, most within one riding season several sooner.
The SW-Motech Blaze have to be the best soft saddlebags I have ever owned.
Rock solid, easy on/off, fit once and forget.
I fill them with beer or guns and ammo and never had a problem, probably going over their weight limit half the time.
I've had mine now for four years and they still look new.
I'd like to see a review of the OP's after four years if they last that long.
I'm hoping they come out with a version for the Vitpilen.
I'd rather pay for quality once than cheap multiple times.

Looks good, I'd like to know how they hold up after a year. I had some Bilt (yeah, yeah, I know) saddlebags that deteriorated from the sun and were falling apart at the seams after one year. Now I have some Ogio bags that are holding up better, although the color on them has faded to purple.
