In my continued quest for the right CT for me - I've sat today for the first time on a CT with all 3 Honda "boxes" fitted - whilst wearing leathers and Sidi boots
Not particularly impressed at the quality of the silver boxes - for Honda they seem a bit flimsy/plasticy but the thing that concerns me is that even though at 5'10" but with short legs [cue abuse about the short-arse from Wales - even though I'm not Welsh!], I was stuggling to "get my leg over" [cue even more abuse about sheep] without catching the edge of the pannier with said motorcycle boot
In fact, you'd have to be Rudolf Nureyev or 6'6" to clear the boxes cleanly! On the sidestand, after the 3rd attempt, there were scuff marks already appearing
Anyone else had this problem?
The Givi luggage is harder and more durable - in black it doesn't show the scuffs as badly
