Panniers wanted
on: November 08, 2015, 01:04:13 PM
I'm on the lookout for panniers for a CT... Either genuine ones at a sensible price or something Giv'ish... Trying to avoid extra racks but needs may swing it... Thanks in advance...:)

They are as rare as hens teeth[because there are not many CT's about] I have taken the plunge and bought some Givi Outback Panniers,new,not cheap but once you got them you can put them on other bikes.

Thanks... that's what I though may be the case... I am eyeing up Givis or perhaps the cheaper Kappa Garda's?? Anyone had these...?

My choice of buys is a CT DCT with all the luggage but lowered and needs "de-lowering" or a better bike without some of the bits or panniers... I'd have either but in both cases the bits are not common for the reasons you say above...:)

I might be tempted to part with my original Honda top box and panniers if the price is right; how much would you offer? Mine has the (unused) removable Honda-branded fitted inner bags (with straps so they can be carried like satchels).
The luggage is paired with the ignition key which means you'd have to check with Honda that you can get the locks re-programmed. It might not be possible.
I'd only part with them for a good offer mind.

The Kappa Garda luggage does look great. Good value too.

Panniers don't have that pointless second opening thing that the Trekker 33s have. Just eats into the space.

I opted for the GIVI set up . . . .V47 topbox with V35 side cases . . .look great on the CT and waterproof. Full kit complete with all fittings is around £800.
