I have an ER-6F that I'm converting to touring duty. I'm getting a comfy seat, higher windshield and, of course, side bags. I have soft bags already, but the bike is going to be left unattended occasionally, and I want something that can't be ripped off and carried away by the first a-hole with a knife.

I've narrowed down the choice to the two in the title, as they seem the least expensive (bags + rack = about €350), but I can't make up my mind.
I like the better capacity of the E41 and the side opening, but one of the best things about having a bike vs a car is that you can dodge traffic, and I fear the larger bags might cripple this ability too much. Keep in mind I live in Europe (Italy specifically)... "dodging traffic" around here means being able to weave in and out lines of stopped cars.

Opinions?

Thanks. :)

I'm about to order the V35's not only beacause they conform to the shape of the bike, but they just look better! My friend has the E41's on his V-Strom and he certainly has the same issues you feared with width a couple of times he has had to remove them to get through some tighter areas when we have gone camping.
