I took a ride by Honda CNX Airport location to see if they could order OEM panniers, but there are none. I decided to then follow Captain Slash's lead and get them fabricated at Somchit.

Somchit is not easy to find. The easiest way there is heading west on Mahidol Road. With Central Airport Plaza in sight it is a left hand turn between a set of 3 or 4-story buildings. Look for red&white curb markings designating the soi. Once you make the turn you cannot miss the shop as it is nearly a full block long.

Somchit charged 2000 baht for the job. I opted for painted steel.

I visited the shop the day before and they took the design and measurements. They had the two panniers ready for installing which was set up for the following day. I dropped the bike off at 0800 and picked it up at 1600.

I've got a Baja 250 and wanted to get something similar made up. What are you using for cases as I've been unable to find anything suitable? Thanx Geoff

Geoff,

I use the synthetic Alpinestars saddlebags which you can find at Chiang Rai Saddlebags
http://crsaddlebags.com/index.html
or across the Mae Sai border in Tachilek.

Nothing fancy for me.

CR Saddlebags also has tail racks, but not sure for your bike.
