I have the same set up, however I bought a 40 liter top case from H&B also. I can tell you that rear rack is very sturdy, I have had well over the 11 pound limit in my top case with no problems.

jerameyms,

I would like to see some pictures of your H&B top case on your bike. I have not ruled out getting one myself. How easy it is to take on and off? Does it lock in place? Which one did you buy?

Thanks

Hi guys!
I'm thinking about installing those C-Bow soft bags. Do you think a standard laptop would fit in? I'ts the main reason to buy them, and they are pretty expensive to buy and just try....

I know my 15 inch is out of the question. My son has a 14 inch but it will be a few days before he gets home, but I don't think it will fit either. The bag is only 10 tall but a laptop it can be made to lean some.

I was barely able to put a 14 inch laptop into the bag. However, I would never want to do it. So don't even think about buying it for that purpose. A 12 or 13 inch might be OK.

I have the Hepco & Becker rear rack too - for my CBR125R (150R). I have the universal Givi Monokey E250 adapter plate for it. It allows me to use Givi Monokey top cases. I have the largest case Givi makes on the back - the E55 Maxia.

It works incredible well.

I took it on a tour here:

You Can't Tour On That. A 4000KM Ontario Trip On A 2011 CBR150R - ADVrider

I'd love to get the C-bow carriers. Unfortunately, they aren't compatible with the 2011 CBR125R (150R) generation. The passenger peg bracket is welded to the frame of the 125R, whereas it's bolted to the frame on the CBR250R (and the bolts are used in fitting them to the CBR250R). With that said - I plan to find a way to attach it anyway - so I'm going to purchase the C-Bow for the CBR250R and then the attachment accessories so I can attach my Ortlieb waterproof saddlesbags (seen below) to the C-Bow carriers.

Bent - is there a weight limit specified for the C-Bow carriers? I haven't been able to find this information online.

The attached literature says 5 kg per bag.

Thanks. The connecting strap should serve to reduce the load on the C-Bows considerably too. The C-Bows look like a fantastic setup for touring.

you really shouldn't compare yourself to your son. anyone knows a 12 inch will barely fit the way it is....
