The Mistral I bag has a massive, lined center compartment with three exterior pockets and a smaller pocket in the lid for your cell phone and wallet. If what you need doesn’t fit, take the car. At $479, the system is more expensive than throw-over saddlebags, but includes the bag, a Pack-Rack and one set of L-Brackets. A storm cover is optional. All system components are available separately, in case you need to repair crash damage or want different bags for different days. Actually, there is one problem with the Ventura system. It’s so effective that all your no-good GSX-R buddies will ask you to carry their junk. Learn to say no.
