My Flemish and French are rubbish, the same as the Honda top box. The panniers are ok in my opinion, but the top box, a waste of money.

There a few options available for all sorts of extras, the best thing to is to look through this site and others, then shop around, some of the Honda extras are expensive and better cheaper options are available, good luck and enjoy the bike

It depends. I use the original Honda top box every day and I like it. It is smaller than my old 45 liter top box on my VFR, but big enough for my 14 laptop in a backpack. And because it is smaller it is also easier to carry arround and stored.

Mine in contrast to what others experience is totally whater proof.
Somebody mentioned at the club that they were modified lately.  (mine is almost 2 months old).

Not sure they were modified, believe Honda said " they were not designed to be water proof, I have the Givi 46ltr top box and find it superb in every way, Iknow people on here their Honda top boxes were leaking!

Hoi Lexus, the original panniers are ok because they are water proof, and they fit well to the bike. Topcase is another story. Costs a lot of dineros, is small and most of the time not water proof.

Van waar ben je eigenlijk? Er zitten hier nog een paar nederlandstalige forumleden.
