Does the Job
Compared to hard cases, these bags are a great deal. Rode second day of trip in rain and the bags performed as promised. The bags are a little hard to get in and out of because of waterproof design and it takes a little time to adjust them to the bike.

These bags from Givi, put the touring in my sport oriented bike!
These bags are easy to install and gives the ability to take carry enough for a multiple day ride out of town. A great idea was the heat shielding material on the back side of each bag, which helps against melting or warping of the material by heat coming from under tail exhaust systems. The stitching on the seams of these bags are of good quality. I would recommend these bags to other riders!

Keith P: I have a DR650 that I have a set of hard panniers on it now. I wanted a set of Dry bags for off road riding. These look like just what I am looking for. I can't wait to try them out on my Colorado trip in two weeks.Aug 8, 2014
A shopper asked:Do these bags require a mounting rack? Suitable for Honda NC700x?May 30, 2014
doyle h:Unfortunately I never got the bags on my bike (KLR). Upon receiving them, I did a quick inspection and found a hole in one of the bags. The weld had let loose and left about a quarter inch opening. If I were you I would go with a different bag. These looked like nice bags, but I question the quality. Revzilla was great about the return and paid for shipping them back. I will definitely get my next bags from them.Jun 11, 2014
I do not definitively know whether or not the Givi 405 bags can safely withstand close proximity to your bike's exhaust, but I would NOT recommend you allow the bags to make direct contact with the hot exhaust pipe(s).
What I did with my bike- a 2013 Super Tenere with left-side high exhaust- was to purchase the Givi metal side racks, to create an air gap between the bag and the exhaust shield... that gets quite hot anyway.
The "inner face" of the bags (the side facing the motorcycle) is made of a heavy-duty synthetic vinyl. I am guessing it "might" withstand the heat of the exhaust, but to me it was worth the (approximate) $200 to buy the metal rack to use with these soft bags. An added benefit was that the metal side rack provides multiple tie-down points for bungees, Rok straps, etc.
We are in the process of doing a cross-country trip across the entire USA. So far, my Givi bags have logged about 8K hard road miles on them. They are holding up great, are very secure, and totally waterproof even during several hard, driving rainstorms at 60+ MPH.
I hope that answers your question, and helps in making your final selection. Good luck, and ride safe!
