Does anyone know if you can put the Givis or any of the other hard bags on the Thunderbird. I am considering one but I would want hard bags and a trunk on it. I'd like a fairing but I don't think that is going to happen.

I'm 73 y/o and have reached the point where the big touring bikes are hard for me to handle. I really don't like riding the trike but I can handle the cruisers because of the low seat on them. I'm considering the Kawasaki Voyager and the Road Star by Yahama along with the Thunderbird. All things being equal I'd pick the Triumph because of its handeling traits. I don't think you get much bang for the buck with a Harley but I'm open minded even on that.
