Hi khaadu,
i had saddlebags on my bike. But removed them cos they werent of much use. At present I have fork bags, lower engine guard, windshield, high-beam flasher, RD handlebar on my bike.
Heres a pic of my bike :

Sweet ride V12. I still cant get over how well you maintain your machine. It looked just brand new the last I saw it...and it was 2+ years old!!

n0o v12
not just like that!

its very useful to keep duplicates of all the reg papers and firstaid kit as elim has no place for it, the place for tool kit is too small for the toolkit, let alone the firstaid kit!
thtas why find the fork saddle bag very useful

The reason why I keep the fork bag empty is bcos u never know when someone just flicks the bag or its contents. Anyways i carry xerox of my papers. Have reduced the Xerox size and laminated them. So they fit perfectly in my wallet.

The fork bag hardly weighs anything. So no handling problems.

Oh i forgot to mention the indicator visors and fork reflectors :
Click on the below 2 links

BTW the saddle bags that I had on my bike didnt look like the actual saddle bags. They were kind of boxy looking. And it used to be a problem washing the bike with those bags. Couldnt wash the bike without removing them. So got rid of them. I'll post a pic of it later.

Anyways if you want some tips for modding the Elim refer to this pic : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/iipcache/3285.jpg
Dont click on the link. Copy paste it into another window.
