Givi Panniers

Its nice to get the old trekkers back on the bike, the Givi fitting kit was easy to put on.

I still think silver is the best colour too   :152:

Hi to you Acrosland
This is my first ever post on this website so hope you receive it ok.
I`m looking at buying side panniers for my CT and came across your post.
I`ve looked at the Hepco & Becker option but other users have complained about them being too high for the pillions legs.
Your obviously pleased with the Givi Trekkers have you rode with a pillion who has had any issues with your Givi side boxes?
A ride to Scotland in October is on the cards with the other half, with her being 5ft 4" i`m hoping they wont be a problem.
Thanks.

ENGLISH BIKER... I considered the trekkers which do look great but I opted for the GIVI V35s in black with the siver trim for my black Crosstourer, they are more rounded contour so check them out as they may be better for pillion... the main reason I chose them is that I have changed bikes every 3 years or so, so if next time I go for something different from an adventure style bike, the V35s will be adaptable and still look good on another model, whereas the Trekkers are perfect look for this bike ! Hope this helps you decide...I too am touring Scotland but September...enjoy your trip !

GeofftheChef.....Thanks for your info. Spent all day (as you do) browsing the net looking at various side boxes.
The V35`s i admit do look good however, having just emptied the bank account to pay for the bike, i`ve promised her that this is the bike for keeps ( honest !! ) so the side boxes i decide on will be for this bike only.... Applecross / top scotch here we come, with or without side boxes.
Be good, GeofftheChef....

I want to buy Givi trekker 46 but I would like to know how much bigger is than Honda case.
Does anyone have a picture of both mounted on the CT for comparison?

Thanks
