So, I just bought my CTX today and am thoroughly pleased. I purchased it to hop around town and get to work. I was attracted by the fuel efficiency, but the look sealed the deal. The only thing that's missing is the bags. It seems people only have the red ones. I happened to get the white CTX. Does anyone know if there will be a white plate for the OEM bags?

Is it necessary to buy the colored inserts for the saddlebags.
I've had black bags before on colored bikes and it wasn't a problem.
Do these look unfinished if the colored panels are not installed?

here is a photo of a bike with the plain black saddlebags. I think they look sharp.

Thanks guys,
Black looks fine to me.
I dropped a bike with painted bags once, had to replace the lids. Black, unpainted is more tolerant of concrete/blacktop.
P.S. Those who have never dropped bike......never fear......it'll happen.

Did it the other day. Left the parking brake on tried to take off and down I went. Saddlebags saved the bike. And you can't really see the ding either.

Being the OCD person that I am I cannot help but notice the Honda Emblems reversed. Glad the bags helped with the fall. I really think they look great on the bike, just having a hard time with the cost.
The emblems are the same. No left and right. One is on right the other is on wrong.

Both my "wing" stickers have the wings tips pointing rearward.

If it doesn't bother you then I wouldn't worry, it would drive me nuts because attention to detail was branded into my head June 1989 in bootcamp.....now everything is "in the details" lol.
