hard bag for the rc?

tried doing some searching and only came up with gear bags so far
looking for some input
trying to find or make a hard bag for bike
getting ready to do a very long ride
was thinking if i cant find anything reasonable i wanted to make
something, being a welder, templated from the rear set so i can
lock it in and swap it with the seat when i dont want it
any ideas or input would be great
thanks guys

A couple years back i actually saw an RC51 with "matching" hard bags and a passenger coming down Rt. 95 from Maine to NH. I'm pretty sure he must have had those Helibars or lifters too because he looked pretty comfortable. I am assuming the were custom because the bags were even painted to match the color scheme of the bike.

Bump, i wouldn't mind a set myself!

Here you go this was already discussed on Speedzilla actually,

I even got a spare rear seat to start this, now i just need to get a Givi Top box. Pretty awesome set up.

Let me know if your trek takes you through Indianapolis, that may be fun to meet some of the posters as you travel...yeah its a long ass ride but what the heck. I would say get a Sargent or Corbin seat, your ass will thank you!
