I'll offer a differant opinion:
Stick with really small ones or get a quick-detach and the biggest you can fit. I think a rear end like yours looks silly with big bags, or any at all. They make some that attach by the wheel. And, for papers, you could just put them under the seat with your tools like I did until I got bags for my old V* 650.

I went for the biggest bags I could find, [see below] They're 21.75" x 8.5" x 12" and I only paid $89 shipped and best of all, they have a life time warranty. They price has gone up $20 but still biggest bang for the buck and don't let the photo on ebay fool you, they look much better in person. They came with two more conchos on the bottom, but I removed them.
