 welcome martin houston, The white Honda wing looks good in all that black.
I really like my rack with a box on it, I'd never leave home without it.

Welcome to the forum.

I'm happy with this Cortech tail bag. The sides expand when needed....

 welcome

The black looks really sharp. I have a theory that 700s look good no matter how you paint them (no counterexamples, please).

...looking for saddle or tail bag suggestions if you have them

Are you looking for serious carrying capacity for touring, camping, etc, or just a place to stash gear for day rides or commuting? I have a set of Saddlemen Sport Panniers (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001UJFB2W) that I really like for commuting. They're semi-rigid, so they have a pretty clean look, and the shape kind of matches that of the tank. One side has enough room for rain gear, jacket liners, etc; the other I use for stuff that goes in and out - lunch, books, and things. Last week I carried a gallon jug of engine oil in it. One advantage of saddlebags is that they leave the back of the seat free for strapping on your occasional larger item.

The Amazon reviewers said they might need custom mounting, but I got them to work OK with just the supplied straps under the seat. On my to-do list is a fancier mount to make them easier to take on and off.

I think the 700-S is all-around the best looking bike ever built (I'm very partial to them), seems timesless to me.

who makes it?
The box is a Shad. They make several sizes and aren't too expensive. I called the rack mine because I made it. I would call it a replica of the Honda OEM one that is made of unobtanium. There are several members here that have the OEM one, and they come up on ebay from time to time for $$$.

I've got these Fieldsheers on my 700s and love them.



http://www.motorcyclegear.com/parts/closeouts/luggage/fieldsheer/expander_motorcycle_saddlebags.html

I don't have any pics, but I had to attach them over the seat, kind of like in the pic.  If I ride two up I have to take them off.  I also have a similar top case to the Shad on Skramer's bike.  I love having the space to toss my lunch, gym clothes, additional work things I might need, and have a place to put my helmet and riding pants when I park.

I should get a pic up with all the goodies on her...

Welcome to the group.  I'm only 200 miles to your East - let's meet in the middle one day and rip some curves.

I have sold my 700s, and ride a 750 now.  But when I had it, I used the Tourmaster Tail Bag.  I'm 6'-0" and it was entirely unnoticeable behind me.
