Hi AussieKiwi...

I bought them today at the official dealer in Valencia (Spain)...I still don't know exact dimensions but for my taste, they seem quite smaller...quite disappointed for the moment...and really expensive...more than 100 € each...I expected much more quality and that's not the case... :192: for Honda in this subject...

According to Honda info... volume is about 21 litres...so it´s not very big...for my taste they should be much bigger...

I'm leaving to Portugal next Saturday morning...I will see and tell you about my experience with them...

Cheers... :018:

Get the GIVI inner bags...check out online as there are several types and sizes to fit most boxes and panniers,not just Givi's own ... and MUCH less expensive than the honda stuff.

Can't see why people would buy innerbags.

1) They are most of the time expensive.
2) They take a certain volume from your case, which means less luggage.

For several years now I use plastic bags to keep the water out, and two years ago I bought two waterproof  bags, you know those used by most adventurous guys. Advantage is that they are waterproof, and you can compress them by pushing the air out. Think I paid around €15 each, and they do their job.

I bought some of these http://www.decathlon.be/ki-pocket-40-l-id_8194035.html. Works perfect in my H&B Xplorers 40l and you can store something on top of it in your panniers if you want. Will buy a third one for my topcase.
