In a single dark color with the tan seat, it's kinda got an Army vibe to me. And an Army bike needs bags...

Looks good with and without bags.

It ain't the bags that detract from the beauty of your 'Pin, it's the godawful windshield

I miss bags the most when I switched to the Pin, but never found any that looked right, and flowed with the fender line. Ended up going with a couple of tool bags, which gives me a place for some small basic stuff.
I've seen a couple of hard plastic and fiberglass trunks, that could be bolted to the solo rack for quick storage, but haven't picked one up yet.

Big fan of the Memphis Shades fairing. Looks better than a shield, and keeps the wind off your face as well as your hands, which is nice in the cold weather. It's a quick disconnect and can be off in a few seconds.

Therein lies the dilemma of the ages. The only solution is to buy a bagger, (something in a Cross bike would be nice), then strip the Pin down to it's elemental best. Of course you"ll have to tell the wife/girlfriend that you won it in a drawing you entered a the bike show or something in order to keep your head attached to the rest of your body.

I have to say without those bags but practicality will prevail...I seem to tote my backpack everywhere because I have to have my combat power ranger belt on anyway!

before i even read the post above i was thinking the same, the tan seat gives it a nice retro look, i think some matching tan bags would look sweet! spoke wheels too!
