Motech Legend for Street Cup?

Hey guys.

https://sw-motech.com/en/products/lu...ear/side+bags/

I came across these motech legend side bags, and they look really good. The main thing that drew me to them is the ability to remove them, because honestly most bags on the side of bikes look bad in my opinion. You could put them on easily when you need them and take them off when not needed.

My question is two fold. First, does anybody have them and have an opinion on them? Or better yet, pictures of them mounted on a street cup?

Secondly, I've read conflicting things. Will the larger 13.5 L bag fit on the street cup or only the smaller one?

Thanks!

Hi,

Have a T120 and can recommend them, they look good! Have a waterproof lining inside.

Not sure about bag size clearance, if your bike has exhausts mounted higher than the T120.

You can buy them in two versions, one with panniers and one with a saddle strap. In both cases you can mix and match bag sizes on the two sides but a bag for the saddle strap won't have the backplate for the pannier rack (and not so easy to install it later).

Some people complain about fast discoloration of the bags but can't comment as I don't have them since long.

I have them on my T120 as well. They work well for me and the racks are not too distracting to look at. I have the larger ones on mine. Have you checked out SW motech website? There are a few pics of them on a street twin there.

Sorry didn't notice the link you posted. The racks actually fit the street twin better than the T120 as they fit behind the top shock mount rather than in front of it.

Plus, as far as I understand, you can fit something else on top of the side carrier racks when you're not mounting bags.

For aesthetics and to cover them could be a number plate like this: https://sw-motech.com/en/products/lu...2572052044.htm

Or build your own accessory with a compatible plate with the attachments: https://sw-motech.com/en/products/lu...2572042137.htm

(I'm also thinking about it, ideas welcome).

Have had the LS2’s for over a year. They are great, due for a rewax. The larger bags are not recommended which sucks. I’ve measured to try and check but it does look like they’d get too close to the exhaust. I have a Triumph gearsack to lay over (sans cowl) when touring.

Awesome! Thanks for the picture. I have the same bike, and the bags actually look pretty good. You got any pics with the bag detatched? Im curious what it looks like with just the rack.

Also, how do you like that side cover bag and who makes it?

Also, Ive been the fence about the tank pads on my street cup because of the paint scheme. How do you like them?

I dee that the larger bags are not reccomended but it almost looks like they should fit right? Theres a lot of space left over with the smaller bags attatched

Happy to help. The frame is unnoticeable.
If you have the cohones to try the larger bag I’d be grateful. Do not have a supplier in Melbourne that stocks so if have to buy one to try.
Side bag is off Etsy - shop in Bangkok called Korn9Shop. Nice quality for the price.

I like the knee pads both from a looks and function, the tank pad is purely to avoid scratching.
