Has anyone tried the Shad Panniers on their CB?  Aliexpress have them at a very reasonable price @$558 CDN.

Rated them...as in liked
I see why you questioned my comment as one letter wrong as a typo error or a predictive text makes a whole world of difference to my meaning..🤣
My words were brief as I had not turned notifications and I was woken up by a few without realising as to why.
My pal who had the Shad cases is coming over today so I'll get his reasons for him liking them and come back to you...He bought the bike naked and fitted them so he will have an opinion on the the fit and use, he is a very hands on tools guy in professional/home life.
He needs a larger milling table..he designs and makes one !
At the moment,he needs a larger steel framed building for his farm machinery...he designs a steel frame one..buys the steel,cuts,welds and has just got the steel back from the galvanising company and digging the base for the footings.
For sure he will a critical opinion on the Shad kit 😉😉😉

I like my wife's Shad top box more than my GIVI simply because she can latch hers without a key, the key is simply to lock it after it's latched. I can't open my GIVI without a key.

You searched for SH48, but the ones shown are SH23.  Is this on purpose?

Thanks for contacting your pal.  I'm very interested in what he has to say about the cases.  I use to have the Honda luggage my NC750X and they were very nice but they were extremely expensive.  Also think I may want a top load case.  I've had a few of the side open cases and sometimes it can be a bit of a pain.  I'm not planning on doing a top case.  I have a nice all weather bag for that purpose.  The price is very reasonable and the cases come with the mounts specifically for the CB500. The mount are also tight to the bike and simple in design to they don't look odd when the cases are not on.

My interest is with the SH23.  I'm not interested in a top case bit just the side cases.

These ones.

From the Shad page about their 3P system for the CB500X (http://www.shad.es/en/shad-world/produits/fixations/honda/cb500x/2017/c12mar1mod587mot4359/), it seems that the SH23 is not compatible:

"3P SYSTEM ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH SIDE CASES SH36/SH35.
NOT COMPATIBLE WITH SH23."

The same is true for the NC750X (http://www.shad.es/en/shad-world/products/fittings/honda/nc750x/2017/c12mar1mod605mot4364/), but not for the Benelli TRK 502 (http://www.shad.es/en/shad-world/products/fittings/benelli/trk-502/2017/c12mar23mod681mot4455/).

Well that's odd.  So what's selling on Aliexpress?
