I have no idea if the pillion is comfy with the bags on. My wife does not like to ride.... So I ride alone. You might be able to get the large Velcro panels to go underneath the seat with some work. But honestly, if pillion comfort is a high priority, you might have the wrong bike.

The velcro coming across is not so much uncomfortable for my wife as slippery. I'm going to figure out how to run them under the seat, especially since I got the seat reshaped for her and a gel pad added. Oh, and I added a backrest to the luggage rack. My buddy says all I need now is highway pegs and I'll have a Ducati bagger! I guess I wanted a Diavel Strata but I didn't like the look or the price of it.

Rain cover??

I just bought these bags and installed them on my 1200S, they fit great. I don't know if I'm just stupid, but how do the darn rain covers go on? Does anyone actually use them?

They are not rain covers. They are rain bags. You put the rain bag inside the regular bag then put your stuff inside the rain bag. I have used them and they work. Basically the bag gets wet but the rain bag inside does not therefore your stuff days dry.

Question Using them with the seat cover

What about the rear seat cover, can you still use it after installing the support frame?

Yes, but then you have to run the piece that attaches the bags to each other under the seat. I've done it, but it's a bit of a PIA to get the bags even because you have to leave a little slack for when you put the seat on because the seat causes it tighten somewhat.

Another one, do you realy need the 16mm cone bit that says in the installation instructions or can I use a regular 16mm bit properly centered to enlarge the hole? Thanks!

No. I actually used a wood hole bit and it worked perfectly. Just smooth a bit afterwards.
