Their holdalls are ok.  Their panniers are rubbish...

Also read a number of reports stating people didn't like them... Stitchings coming loose etc.

I have the crash bar bags and find them very decent.

This might be good for my needs, does anyone know this type of bag?

If you like that style you can also look at the 70l waterproof version (which is maybe too huge):

My mate bought the panniers but hasn't used them yet. What's the problem with them?

I have two mates who bought them.  Both sets fell apart surprisingly quickly - and if you look at the on-line reviews, it's quite a common problem.  Sounds like the stitching isn't really up to the job if you put any kind of load in them...

Hi Hannibal,

I have a smaller SW Motec "evo cargobag" that I've used on other bikes and it seems well made.  I haven't used it a lot and never on the Honda.  The down side for me is sometimes I lose things down in the low sides that I thought I put on top. 

-Mark

Here's a cheap lightweight but very effective soft bag stay option - almost invisible with no bags and sturdy enough. $20.00 on Amazon or Ebay Don't use the hardware that comes with the kit, use better stainless nuts and bolts from hardware store. :306:

That doesn't sound bad at all, cheap and minimally invasive.
