soft luggage options

Any other suggestions for a like setup? I intend to commute on the WR (as soon as I can figure out how to start the thing) and need to carry up to say 25lbs.

Here's a starting trick I learned here at TT. It works great for my 426. One or two kicks in 40 degree weather and she fires right up.
WITHOUT THE DE-COMP LEVER, kick your starter slowly until it locks up. The piston should be at top dead center now. Next, pull the de-comp lever and just press down on the kick starter enough to release the pressure. Now take get the kick starter all the way up and let her rip.
In cold weather, I'll twist the throttle twice after I turn on the choke to help prime the carb. DO NOT turn the thottle when you kick the bike. It will most likely just lock up and send a jolt from your leg up through the rest of your body.
Hope this helps. Good luck with the luggage.
