RE: Bags
+1 on Cortech tail bag and saddle bags (I have the sport bags). No turn signal relocation necessary. They all expand and will really hold a lot more than one would think. Especially if packed correctly. You can find them on ebay used for a very decent price. I think I spent $200ish for the whole set up.

RE: Bags
Cortech makes good stuff, I used it for many years.
I picked up a waterproof mod size and Ron-strap that on my luggage rack and seat. Simple, effective, ugly as sin.

RE: Bags
I had soft bags on my first bike and have hard cases that came with my CB1100. (A big part of the reason I bought the bike in the US, vs Canada was the $$$$ in accessories) In comparing my day to day experiences with hard vs soft, including water resistance and security I would go with hard cases all day long. I have 120L of storage on my CB between my 3 cases and they come on and off in seconds.

I really like the idea of the cortech blaze system because when you take the bags off it looks really clean, the hardware is near invisible and you have a really clean look, however I wouldn't switch from my Hepco and Becker side cases to those to eliminate the hardware showing when the bags are off.

RE: Bags
The hard bags and trunk on my ST become storage facilities for a lot of junk I seldom use lol, but it is a touring bike so bags are a necessary evil on it.

My CB gets used for touring as well, but touring is not it's primary mission. Once or twice a year I throw on the soft bags, tail bag, and tank bag and head someplace, but the other 50 weeks I don't want to be encumbered by hard bags and trunk while riding the curvy back roads that are the CB's natural calling.
