Total investment will be around $1000, but worth every penny!!! I just got back from a 2372 mile trip and they worked great!!! The only downside is that the sidebags are semi-soft/hard so they're not waterproof or very theft proof. They come with rain covers that work well and luggage locks which will keep honest people honest. When I travel, I take them inside at night.
You sound just like me: most of my riding involves some kind of an errand where I need to haul something (today it was two dozen farm fresh eggs), or commuting to work and needing to take my work stuff. I also keep rain gear and tools, etc with me all the time. This is a great solution, and I actually have more carrying capacity than I did on my NINJA 1000! But I admit that when they come out with a set of hard sidebags, I'll be the first in line to get them!
Here's a thread I wrote with details and pics:
Also, I have an Akrapovic muffler and there is no issue with heat from it damaging the bags.
Another note: the green highlights were done by my riding buddies at 417 Graphix. They added green to the sidebags after these pics were taken. I'm afraid your stock ones will be boring black and grey as shown on the sidebags.
