Bags/Panniers question

If you buy the Honda panniers ($700ish), does that include the mounting racks?
Thanks

There are no racks, they mount directly to the points on the body. I bought a used set and their fine but no way I would spend $700 on them.
My next set will be soft bags with racks.

I saw multiple sets of Mosko Moto soft bags this weekend (they are made about 120 miles north) and am very impressed. Will keep my 37 liter panniers for road travel, but when off-road is contemplated, soft is the way to go. http://mototrek.net/ New training video showing a crash that shows why soft are the way to go.

Totally agree , I'm looking at a few different types like the Monsoon 3 by Enduristan

Saw that mototrek crash too... made me regret my decision to go with hard cases. If your foot gets caught by the hard case, it's gonna be toast
