Welcome to the forum, Leather Rebel. Excellent choice of motorcycle.

If you're looking for throwover saddlebags, you've got a pretty big selection, just make sure you get some saddlebag guards to keep them from tangling in the wheel.

If you want hard-mount bags, your choices are a little more limited. There's a mounting system called Easy Brackets that work pretty well, but they space the bags out from your fender quite a bit. If you went with those, you'd still need to pick out some bags.
