I have the shad 36's
Used them for 3 Euro trips, safe, study and definitely waterproof
Just a inch or 2 wider than the BMW ones
Prefer the 3P bracket over the BMW as it is off 11 months of the year and looks tidier when on
Can put the brackets on in less than 10 minutes
I think they look better, but that's my opinion

I'm also looking at the Shad's over the BMW ones, am I right in assuming that if/when I change bike I should just need to buy a different bracket from Shad? If that is the case then that is a huge selling point for me.

I concur with all of the above.  The brackets are far superior:  They are less obtrusive, and yet they are beefier.

As posted in a previous thread, I would add that the flat-black finish of the Shads is also worthwhile.  The XR is a tall bike, and I boot my saddle bags frequently when mounting.  If I had the BMW bags, I'd wince every time I scratched the color-matched clear coat.

Oh, and the Shads can be had for far, far less money.  :046:

Or Trekker Dolomiti  - -  if you want a bit of style, to go with that capacity. :028:
