Default 2010 Yamaha Raider S - Should it have bags?

Hey, I was just wondering if the Raider S is supposed to have bags or not. I mean, it has the mount points for a backrest, so it might be possible for it to mount bags. I'm not asking if it's possible, though, I'm asking if it would look bad to put saddlebags on a bike like this, if it isn't meant for them.

damn, it's not yamaha, it's Star.

The bike is meant to look like a badass chopper. Putting bags on a badass chopper is like putting a rubber apron and boots on Megan Fox. They might be useful, but they really don't fit "the look."

Or a chopper fork on a sportbike, or ape hangers on anything
