    Looking into possibly picking up a set of these. I am curious to see what the bags look like on the bike as well as what the bracket looks like on the bike when the bags are not on.

    Any help would be great

    Hi Hound

    I have them on an ST, and pictures of them can be found in this thread: 72100-Comments-on-Hepco-amp-Becker-C-Bow-panniers-and-Wunderlich-Tank-Bag

    Not quite the same as an S, but I hope it helps.

    I'm still very happy with them. They are getting a little sun-faded, but other than they are as good as when I installed them.

    1000 miles a month is simply not enough fun with this bike.

    So the job is going to have to go.

    I have also installed them on my ST after Dick posted about them. They have been a great addition

    Thanks for the input all. Pammmy, any chance I get you to snap a few additional shots? I would like to see how the mounts look without the bags on and at a 3/4 view and where I can see the whole bike. How far do the mounts stick out and do they look unnatural without the bags? I do a lot of short trips around town and only need the bags for long trips. I am concerned that the mounts will look like something crazy on the bike and people looking will say "WTF"

    Thanks Rob but I am looking for a shot from the front at a 3/4 view that shows the entire bike and not just zoomed in on the back. I would love to see a shot from the top or back as well to see how far those mounts stick out (without the bags)

    In the pic Rob posted, the body panel is black and the C-bow mount blends in pretty well. My S is Flame Red and I am afraid the contrast will be pretty noticeable.

    I know it is petty but I really love the looks and lines of the S and just don't want to mess that up.

    Hi Hound

    Hopefully some of these photos will help. I think one of the great things about this system is how discreet the C-BOW is without the bags on so your queries were certainly valid.
