Standard Honda boxes

After a week away in Scotland with the standard boxes on they are crap my gear was soaked, I got the touring pack when I bought the bike I've found the touring screen rubbish and the boxes rubbish, I'm thinking what a waste of money,

I want to use the Ali boxes, what are people fitting

I'll second that on the Bumot panniers. I'm very impressed with them.

Have come to the same conclusion and am ordering a set of Bumot panniers.

Bumot Defender System looks the ticket. Add an optional lockable 4ltr tool box (mounts to the rear of the bike on the opposite side of the exhaust) and you'll be good to go.




You can see the tool box in the picture below.

Toolbox is great but god the Bumot's are ugly. Lack of engineering knowledge (or just making them cheaper to make) as well, instead of using thinner/lighter material with a stronger design they have just use a slab of thicker metal. Get a bead roller Bumot. "Beads are embossed lines that run across the surface of the sheet. These are made using a bead roller. These indentations add strength perpendicular to the bead." You will give the boxes some aesthetics and make them lighter. (I know the aesthetics is subjective).

Surely the solution for leaky panniers (anyone's not just Honda) is to use ultrasil dry bags inside. These take up hardly any room if compared to the purpose made inner bags, they compress down to the size of a matchbox, and the one I have is a 40 litre duffle bag. I also have a 20 litre 'rucksack' and two or three smaller rolltop bags. All made of ripstop stuff with taped seams

Nope, you were right, they are ugly.

I like the looks of the SW Motech adventure panniers and have crashed on the lighter duty ones (EVO) with nary a mark, but leak past the seals.

The others are pretty utilitarian looking: Jesse, Bumot, etc.
