    Sorry if this subject has been done to death but would be interested to hear people's thoughts on panniers.
    Have a 2016 runner and want some panniers the honda ones are very expensive, so have been looking at shad they seem good value, also Givi but think you have to remove the indicators 🙀, any ideas would be much appreciated.

    I have the Givi Outback Trekker Panniers fitted to my 16 CR. Givi provide brackets to move the rear indicators, but if left in their original location they don't hit anything, it's just they can't be seen from the side of the bike. I found moving them was the biggest and most time consuming part of the installation.

    I have the SHAD ones, with the fake carbon covers, and I am very pleased with them.
    They are well made, fit well and the price is good (capacity, each, is 36ltrs).

    How do you find the look of the mounting bracket.

    As there are no bottom tubes it looks, in my opinion, quite good.
    Have a look at the SHAD website for the installation instructions and you will see what I mean.
    The Honda panniers are the best solution, cosmetically, as there is no support system required but they cost twice what the SHAD ones cost.
    I do not like the Honda panniers as they are painted and I, or someone else, will, without fail, scratch them and then they do not look so good. 
    It's horses for courses, buy the ones that you like.

    Thanks for that do you mind if I ask how much and what size in ltrs they are .

    Mine are the 37 litre Givi Outback Trekker side panniers, I bought these as I already had a matching Top Box from my previous bike. I got some discount when I bought them, paying just over £600.00 for the pair including mounting brackets.The same Dealer quoted over £700 for a pair of the smaller Honda Cases where I would have had to pay extra for locks to match the Bike. Where-as the Givi pair came with three matching locks so that the one in my Top Box could be changed to be the same as the Panniers.

    The Mounting Frames are left on the bike as I never know when I will want to use the Panniers, they are a bit over the top but solid and with very good mounting lugs for the Panniers.

    Whatever you choose will have good and bad points - just down to you when it comes to making a decision!

    I bought mine from Motobuykers for £345.20 for 2 x panniers, fitting kit, 2 x inner bags and delivery.
    I looked at all the other systems but nothing came near, on price,
    and I was a little unsure about the quality.
    I asked, on this forum, if anybody had any experience of them but no one had.
    I went ahead, anyway, and ordered them.
    I glad that I did as I have been very impressed with the quality.
