I got the SW Motech Blaze for my 1200, they are a nice, compact option with very discrete and removable bars that hold everything in place to avoid hitting the exhaust or anything else under the seat. They recently released a new line called Legend, with bigger bags and a more robust bracket to hold them. You can get both options for less than half of the DP ones. Not sure if there are available for the 796 tough.

Here's a picture of the Blaze model on my bike, you can keep the backseat cowl if you want to.

Much, much appreciated Nomad, cheers !

So, i take it they were about 500-ish $ ? Also, can you have a pillion with them installed ?
Still, i don't know buddy, i'm so friggin' lazy these days that even putting/removing those bars sounds like a hassle

I've seen some saddlebags that don't need bars and you just secure them via a central lower strap (that goes under the tail section) - i think they were made by Givi...Still, don't know how secure they'll be so...

Thanks anyways friend

Rosso:

The only hassle is installing a plate below the frame, after that the bars have a quick release mechanism, they're just a click away from installing/removing. The thing with the ones adjusted with a strap is that if you don't attach them thoroughly they might end scraping the tire or the exhaust (it happened to me) So this system is like plug and play, they just wont move with the bar in place. (therefore, lazy friendly) Here's the link if you're interested.

Also a picture of the support plate once installed, it's barely noticeable.

And, it's 300 + shipping.

One guy on here sold his Leggero belt covers because he bent a valve doing this.
In a way, those open belts are art in motion... but I'm not doing it.

I knew a guy who sort of did the rag thing oiling his chain while it was in gear on the center stand... his career as a movie critic is, sadly, over because I... errr, HE... can only give 1.5 thumbs up. Just saying.
