Brief, but good to see. The second tech seems he prefers Harley our Harley wannabe style bags in his comment about the CTX1300 bags not opening on top. I much prefer the side opening, or clamshell style bags. Same as was on my GW and on my ST1100.

^^^ Definitely agree here, Bob. I've heard too many stories of top-opening bags flipping up and off on the highway. Never seen or heard of that happening with a vertical clamshell.

These comments from reviewers kinda remind me of that stereotype biker perception -- you either got a Harley, or one of them damm Ninja bikes. :D Seems to be all these guys are familiar with!

My 83 Venture had bags that opened just like the ones used on the CTX1300.And they WERE a real PIA cause when ever I opened em,everything would fall out.But once I figured out how to pack em so the contents would NOT fall out when opened,they were fine.So the secret was in the way I packed em.Hence the same would apply to the bags used on the CTX.

Check this out. I go to the Honda dealer here in Fayetteville, NC. The salesman I talked with previously said, nothing in yet, wait let me ask the boss. He comes back and says to me, the boss isn't going to order any.... I ask why, he replied, he don't think it will sale. WOW, hurt my spirit. I asked why again, he said, I don't know. I'm now looking for another dealer.
