Ok guys! Finally H&B holders and brackets arrived! I decided to install some hard panniers instead of softbags. Bought some Givi E22N, which are quite small but big enough for me. They also got the Monokey system, so if I ever change my bike I can still use them.
These are the cases:




Back of pannier is almost flat, so H&B holders can be easily bolted:





H&B holders are sold per units, so I had to buy two. Sad news because each one comes with its own key, it would be nice to have only one key for everything. Anyway, that's what is included when you buy those Hepco & Becker C-Bow Holders:



I didn't shot photos to bike brackets, but they are just standard Hepco & Becker C-Bows fot CBR250R, no changes needed.

Now, start home improvement. Easy and fast, just bolt H&B holders into hard panniers. Using the holder as a pattern, drill some holes into pannier:



Then just bolt holder:



This is how the inside looks like:




And that's all! Just fit them on the bike! I'm sorry I don't have detailed photos of panniers attached, there's not much light at home parking:




I came to work this morning with them. Near 40km, including highway -120/130kmh- with no problem, no vibrations, just fine. The only thing I don't like is panniers are placer a bit higher than expected, and doesn't look as good as I wanted. But anyway looks really "stock", very clean and ssmart. Really happy with this!!

I agree, they would look better mounted lower, but at least you are getting the right hand bag further from the exhaust.

I like my E21s fine, but I would have bought those E22Ns in a heartbeat, had they been available last summer. A nice looking shape for our bikes, and additional litre of space in each one!

Recently purchased the Hepco & Becker C-Bow brackets and Street Oval softbags for my bike. Really impressed with the fit and strength of the bracket as well as the high quality of the Street Oval bags.

Looks great. Just curious is there a way to lock up the bags? Would like that option so I can leave stuff on the bike and avoid theft.

The bags are locked to the frames. To lock the main compartment, you could use a small padlock through both zippers. Personally I think locking soft bags is like locking a convertible- very easy to break in, destroying the bags and losing the items. I'd rather just take valuables with me, or hide them in a hidden layer on the bottom. Also, the visible presence of zipper locks just invites curiosity about what's inside.

Hepco & Becker have come out with a new hard luggage option for the C-Bow pannier mounting system called Orbit.
