No word from Honda yet on these, if I recall. I for one LOVED having these on the Gold Wing because it was easy to grab them and take them into a hotel with you. On my Wing the covers opened on the top, so stuff spilling out was no problem. The side-opening cases on the new Wings (and the CTX1300) make this even more of an issue. I wonder if something like these might work:

Saddlemen Medium Slant Saddlebag Liner

They also make the slant liners in a larger and a smaller size, and some for teardrop-shaped saddlebags. Until we can measure the actual interior dimensions of the saddlebags I guess this is an unknown. But I was wondering how many people would be interested in a product like this, especially if Honda decides not to offer them? I have had good luck with Saddlemen products in the past and would love to see them make something for the CTX1300. I may actually contact them and see what they say.

Good idea. But those might be a bit small. Basing this opinion on the volume of the saddlebags. They are the same volume as my ST1100 bags but a different shape. 35 liter. 18 inches long at least. Wonder what the volume of these liners is? Might be a bit of room for extra stuff besides what is in the liner.

I had ordered the medium size saddlebag liners from Saddlemen awhile back, and upon opening the shipping box it was already obvious they were no where near big enough.
I returned them and ordered the large (their largest size option).
They're still not big enough, but at least I can still pack the bag full and know I've got room for other odds-and-ends.

My Old Deauviile saddlebag liner

I found my old Deauville liners fit, still alot of room around then but it's something for now. I'm probably going to get my partner to sew some, she has made liners for my BMW.

I agree about the liners - been on goldwings for 25 years. My GW 1800 bag liners fit pretty well in the CTX. Maybe search a motorcycle boneyard for liners till something better shows up?

I ordered a Cee Bailey windshield for my red bike. I ordered the bag liners while I was at it.

I don't know if the bag liners are made-to-order, but the windshields are. So I don't expect to see mine before next week.

I ordered a set of saddle bag liners from Cee Bailey's too. Along with a new dark grey sport windshield. I probably won't have them for about a week or so. I'm pretty sure that the liners are custom built to order too just like the windshields are. I will post how they work once I get them. :D

River Road Saddlebag Liner Bags 107231
Good fit and decent quality. Just got them today, so still need some usage, but they have good reviews.

Link didn't work for me. Did you copy it right from the page when you were logged in to Amazon? That would be one reason a link to Amazon doesn't work. I always hit the Share via email link on the page and copy the link out of that then close the email box.

Is this the right link?

@dubbsrider posted the Cee Baileys before and did a youtube review of them.

They are nice and custom made. But I just couldn't spend $100+ more for them. They are higher quality.

Cheap bag liners

If you're as cheap as me and just want something to hold stuff on local rides and to keep things from falling out when you open the bags just use those reusable grocery bags you've been collecting for years now.

Not fancy, not form fitting, just fold down the tops a bit so they act like old-fashioned paper grocery bags so you can toss your stuff inside.

Heck, I used those things when I rode the BMW R1200RT and didn't care what anybody thought since they're functional.

Aloha,
Huladog

I think I mentioned this elsewhere on the forum. I just use a few stuff sacks with a draw string. A few different sizes to hold different stuff. I think they work great for everyday. I usually only have one or two in each side and can just take what I need and leave the rest. When travelling for a moto camping trip I have 4 or 5 of these in each side and pack my clothes in a drybag that sits across the pillion (since I ride alone for these trips). Some of the stuff sacks I made from the pant leg of old trousers, and others I bought at Wal-Mart for real cheap (not the drybag ones but just the stuff sacks/ditty bags set of 3 different sizes. Like @Huladog says: don't care what anybody thinks of them since they're functional.

has any i tryed the river road saddle bags number 107234 theyre a little larger?
Look like they'd work ok. Getting larger just means you have to be careful not to over expand when packing.
I got the size smaller so I could put my rainsuit/tire repair/spare fuel in the beside the liners in the saddlebags.
If you are only putting in the bags with their contents, then they should work perfect.
