Rockie, spend a little time on the forum, there is loads of great advice and tips from lots of people on all thing AT, luggage, grips, tyres other accessories and where to buy.
For this neck of the woods lots of people recommend www.ruggedroads.co.uk
. If you dont see what you want on their website just ask them, I would say they can get you any Honda oem part as well as the extensive range they stock. For general purposes bike gear try www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk
for massive stock and superb service. That is where I got my Oxford grips. Any UK based Honda dealer will sell you pannier sets but www.davidsilverspares.co.uk
ship worldwide and are a good source too (they are not a Honda dealer). There are loads of other vendors/suppliers quoted by forum members all with good recomendations, just search the forums for topics you are interested in and you will come across them.
You might look on the forums regarding the Honda panniers, some love them some dislike them, there is so much choice out there you just have to make up your mind as to what you want them for and make a choice yourself. Go with your own gut feelings on stuff, you can go on all day about the miriad of brands of crash bars, luggage etc and debate stuff all day or just go out and buy ones you like and go for a ride.
Take any posts in context regarding equipment, the guys traversing Colorado or the vast expanse of inner Australia have completely different requirements to the likes of us here in Ireland where we are limited in our extreme off road opportunities. "Horses for Courses".
Thats this thread closed now Rockie, I was only intending to post a few pics of my day trip, good luck.
