What hard bags can be mounted to the Hyper?

Look at a hyperstrada. You'd need the mount and the bags. Pretty expensive all told. If you're carryig camping gear etc.. something like the mosko moto reckless 80 might be the ticket - not cheap but well thought out and no racks are needed.

If you're not camping, a couple of sets of rok straps and drybags would do the trick - though you need the passenger grab rail or a rear rack. I've been using one of these for years: https://www.amazon.com/DRY-PAK-Water...97206629&psc=1, and a 20 liter drybag for quick access to rain gear, water etc.. One pari of rok straps for each.

I have 30L Givis with Bellvue Ducati mounts for Givi Trekker cases, very happy with how they worked out, you can go larger in the cases but then it looks like steroid cases on this bike...

Thanks for the info, I looked at your other post with the mounts only and no bags on, boy pretty unsightly.

The factory bags/mounts certainly look better without bags on, which I think was deliberate...the Bellevue bag mounts have proven solid and I've been very happy with them, glad I didn't go with the larger bags, would have been too much and looked like Samonites on both sides...IF you plan to leave the bags on like me, what the mounts look like won't matter much...IF you plan to ride a lot with them off, there's something to be said for the factory bags, I wanted hard bags...

Don't forget the factory bags hold a full face helmet. I would not upgrade to something that did not hold a helmet. Most of the rectangular brands, while offering a lot of storage liters, won't hold a full face helmet.

This, plus the decent look of naked rack, is why the stockers are a great offering.

Stock is a good system, but very expensive to add on. Lots of relatively inexpensive soft bag systems out there.

I have a Oxford Aqua 30L dry bag mounted on the tail with rok straps. I went with that because it comes with a shoulder strap to carry as a duffel. It was very affordable and works great.

That an the stock panniers comfortably supported a 4 day work trip with uniforms, gym and nightlife clothes.

All I did to set up my bike before riding it to Colorado and back (a little over 3k round trip) was to wash it. I throw a Wolfman roll top dry bag on the tail and pack lightly as my trips bias towards backroads and spirited riding. I did take I-70 from Grand Junction to Silverthorn and that was definitely not as fun, of course we were on day 4 and had been doing 7 - 9 hour riding days so everyone was sore and tired. I don't think I was in any more pain than my friend on his 650GS. That said, I love the stock seat on the SP (race seat I think) but I'm going to look into a custom seat before my next long trip. 6'3" 230 with a 34" inseam here.
