BTW thanks ludwig for your input ,would you say gen 2 bags would look ok on gen 1?
They should fit. It might be a color combination you like or don't like.
I keep thinking about getting my fairing and tailpiece painted yellow, leaving the front fender, windshield bracket, tank, saddlebags, and trunk rack blue. Some people would hate that combination. I think it would look fine. Wearing yellow gear - jacket and helmet - has GREATLY cut down on how often I honk at unobservant cagers. An acquaintance with a yellow Goldwing told me he never has had to honk at unobservant cagers when riding that but has to honk all the time on his black cruiser.
So asking me about colors is risky. Not only might I have unusual tastes, I am color deficient. Not quite color blind (deuteranomalous, not deuteranopic), but close.
