    I think they could be off another Honda, maybe the vfr1200 sports bike, not sure though.
    They do look good though. :028:

    Have to say I agree, looking at these from an FJR.
    I wonder how similar the mounts are?

    After the Sunrise ride, we where in Betws Y Coed having a coffee, a load of scooters came in and following them was a plod on an unmarked dark grey coloured VFR1200.
    The side panniers looked pretty similar in shape, but i will bow to you better knowledge and say they do look FJR panniers.  :028:

    @pistnbroke ... I remember the grey plod vfr1200f. It had the standard f panniers. They are quite small and lozenge shape-ish.
