Vstrom 650 pics w/ bags (only please)

Hi,

I am trying to figure out what top/side luggage to buy and why.
Along with the mounting options and why.
I have a chart printed with all my options for the luggage/mounting that I pulled from another website.

Please post up pictures w/ side and rear views so I can get a better idea of what the bike will look like afterwards should I go with this idea or that idea.
Oh and please don't make me guess at what bags are on the cycle ~ brand, size ... bla bla bla.

I know ... this is a huge asking, but really ... this trying to decide makes me want to and some more.

Thank you in advance for you assistance with this big spending $$$ adventure I am about to embark upon.

Givi E360s

These are Givi E360 sidecases on a Givi rack. I've dropped the bike on them, and they seem pretty durable (I had to replace a mounting clip, $9+ shipping). Price for the cases isn't too bad either.

If I had it to do over, I would go with the Jesses. According to the website, they are narrow enough that the bars remain the widest part of the bike. Maybe someone else can chime in - that much luggage space and still able to split lanes?




Good luck,

--J

What bags are you choosing between? What do you like about the various options?

Givi E36 side cases because they're as fugly looking as the Strom:


Givi V46 top case 'cause it holds so damn much:




All the bags since there's always something else to carry:

ain't that the truth ! .... my 2009 DL650A came with them and it is exactly what I was wanting .... rather than fugly, I think of these bags as RUGGED .... they look just as rugged as the V-Strom does !

Well ... that is what I am trying to do now, reduce the list to make a choice.
I have on my list: Shad42 // Hepco & Becker ? // Givi // Jesse // and two others that I do not rememer. Um ... Adventure Trails I think similar to Jesse ? I have just two weeks to get them here and off I go! I have heard that Jesse can't handle that time line.

I am with thumpy. E-21's. I like that they top load, are relatively cheap, and are toughter than you'd think (yes, they will support a Strom on its side with no permanent damage).

I also use the top case from JC Whitney (~$70 delivered). It easily holds a FF helmet

One more Happy-Trail user here.


Like them a lot. Not much to complain about other then the people in parking lots that tell me I should have bought something more rounded and not black. STFU and stop telling me what I "should" have done asshats.
The H.T.'s work great for me.
