    Can someone point me in a direction for luggage for my 99VFR. The only problem being, is that I have a high side mount exhaust and it may be in the way of the bags. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    I think the best way to go would be to get another low mount pipe. It opens up far more choices. The single only reason I got low mount on all 3 VFR pipes I've used is because I eventually want to get Give E360's on the Tubular SideCase Holder.

    E360 - MONOKEY®

    If a high mount pipe is something you simply can't live without, get another muffler & swap back & forth. It takes me less than 90 seconds to remove the muffler from my bike.

    KC-10 FE out...

    BMW K1200S bags fit. Look at my photo gallery. I believe they will clear a high pipe just fine.

    ....I feel like a broken record.

    +1 to the Ventura Pack system. Best softside approach out there.

    They look great, but what is involved in getting them to mount.

    Over on VFRD.com there's a couple stock systems for 5th gens...shipping only. Of course the other option is to just send that high mount to me for safekeeping!

    Givi is the only way to go. I have a new wing rack $125 and a e360 $130 bag with a few scratches that can get you started. You will need the mount kit for your bike that run about $95.00
