Hi guys, finally I've found my laptop measures:
Width: 13.1"/335mm
Depth: 9.37"/238mm

Do you think it would fit, as far as saddlebags are not square?

Carter - I believe one alternative is to buy the C-Bow accessory connectors and screw them into any motorcycle saddlebag of your choosing, and then you can snap them into the C-Bow holders on the bike.

My sons 14 inch laptop is 9.6 inches by 13.5 inches and it barely fits with the bag expanded and the laptop leaning to get it in. Your laptop is not that much smaller and I would still say don't buy these bags and expect to be happy carrying your laptop.

I like the idea of using your own case with the C-Bow accessory connectors. Here is are picture I found where it had been done.

what's the total capacity of this? I see that these bag require that construction to hold it on?

Although i'm not a fan of GIVI, i normally use these

Hold on Mike! Are you sure that is sold is the saddlebag part to be screwed? Looks like this is the bow part, to be fitted into universal racks or something like this...

I looked again. It seems to be what I described. Here is what the link says:

H&B C-Bow-Adapter

Adapter enabling the use of Hepco & Becker saddelbags without the C-Bow to the C-Bow holder.

I found a fellow on the following site who indicated that he has used the adapter for this purpose.

C-Bow Carrier + C-Bow Adapter Hepco & Becker

"Today I purchased the C-bow Carrier and C-Bow adapter for my guzzi 1200 sport. This is a system of fixing of soft panniers revolutionary and aesthetically effective. The carrier should be fitted with Hepco & Becker bags but there is an adapter for each type of soft bags, to be installed with screws to the side bags."

You're right Mike! Yesterday I spent some time with Polo-Motorrad contact person and found out what they sell is adaptor por any saddlebag. I wasn't sure as far as pics are not very descriptive...

Ok guys! Just ordered C-Bow carrier and adaptors, and some small panniers. Hope everything will work together with some home improvement... hahaha!
