Just came back from a 4 day trip to Vermont. Used the Cortech 2.0 Saddlebags with a GIVI 40 Liter Waterproof Duffel. Put the rain covers on the saddlebags and everything stayed dry in some heavy downpours. Rained a lot of the time and the rain covers didn't come off on the highway with some heavy winds. Plenty of storage even for a week or more. I normally have the Cortech 2.0 tail bag on with the saddlebags but swapped out the tail bag with a GIVI 40 Liter bag for this trip.

Just put the bags on this weekend

I just attached the bags this weekend. Took about 30 minutes to strap them on after a few different configurations. I use the close ring for both straps because I was worried the strap may slid off the open rear ring. I'll be checking the straps often to be sure they stay secure.

I have the black ND and I thick it looks good. I'll probably add some reflective tape to the rear of the bags.

Did you have to remove the grab handles to use the Cortech 2.0 Saddlebags?

The ctx700n does not come with the grab handles, so unless they were installed later, I am guessing they did not have them

Ah, OK. I have the DCT model, so mine came with the handles. Can't find a local store that has them in stock, otherwise, I would just take my bike and try them out. Didn't want to order them and then they not fit without having to take the handles off.

Thanks
