Hello all,

I was wondering about the hard cases for the CT.

Those of you that saw the bike up close, do the bags appear to go on and off fairly easily?

Any other observations regarding the bags would be appreciated!

The system is very simple and the frame is integrated on the bike.
However, GiVi technicians takes measures of Crosstourer at EICMA 2011! ;)

From the pictures i've seen, it seems like the side panniers only attached using 03 points - 02 near the seat area and 01 to the footrest. Dont you guys think that it will be flimsy......  :084:

These cases are growing on me. Whats very good is that they have been designed to attach to the bike without the unsightly metal framework that you normally have to put up with when you use an after market luggage system like Givi.

The Honda cases fit nice and close to the bike on three fixing points, and when the cases are not needed the bike still looks good.  Honda have thought about their design and without the need of a fixing frame the luggage can be made larger.
I spoke to a Givi representative at the bike show and asked about their luggage system for the new Cross Tourer and guess what - you all have to fit the unsightly metal frame to your pride and joy.
No thanks I'll stick with the Honda luggage thankyou very much.

Freaky, I think that's the same as the GS, which are okay. And I agree with Strider.

Good point you mention there  :018:  I would not like to drive around with a somewhat "ugly" framework either when the cases are not on. Depending also how much "work" it would be to take off and on aftermarket frames or for what you the bike are really using for etc. ....  I myself did use my AT only for traveling thus never really took off cases for the last two years or so ...
