    As far as I know at the moment only the OE honda panniers fit without any other bracket

    Hopefully if anyone else knows an alternative they will be along soon  :031:

    If the reason you want frameless panniers is the fact that you often ride without panniers and hate the look of those frames then I might suggest the Hepco & Baeckers, simply because the frame is mounted with quicklock bolts and they can be removed very quickly.

     It`s not just the look of the frame,Hondas` engineers say they designed the close fitting p`s to be nearer the centre of gravity of the CT.It would be nice to have a choice.

    That's the holy grail kilogolf, suppose somebody will produce a snappy set someday at a realistic price

    Of course Honda engineers will state that this overpriced ugly and not so waterproof set is the best for the bike, and Honda`s wallet  :018:

    Hi Kilogolf.  Check out the Givi V35 panniers with the specific rack PLXR1110Total cost about £450. on ebay (Native Viking) .   With this rack the panniers sit close into the bike like the Honda ones ,they are fixed onto a quick release carrier that is easily removed to preserve the bikes lines .. You can get quarter panels to trim the cases in ,black and silver or you can spray them to the bikes colours and from what I have seen are better quality than the oe's..My last Givi cases did me for20 years (E36s) and only went when I had a GS---for a short time!!!!THere are some pictures elsewhere on the forum  on a Belgium ,I think,  Crosstourer and they look right well.. Someone may be able to find this link......Good hunting :001:
