question about side and top cases

Dear all versys' owners,

I see this thread that I like and wonder how big some of your side and top boxers are? I think I see some 35-45 L side cases and maybe the big 52 L top box from givi, is this correct?

How does that make your ride feel? specially the top boxes, (regardless of size) since the bike those not have a rack..

Thanks for all the comments

Can't comment on the top box, but the factory side cases don't seem to make any difference on handling as long as you load them evenly.

Trax 37l side cases and 38l top case:

For 1 up riding, I've noticed no performance/handling issues in the 30,000 miles I've had them on my Versys. I normally leave my top case empty to allow me to store my helmet when stopped, heavy stuff gets packed in the side cases.

That's a very "clean" look for saddle bags & a top box. I like the looks of that compared to the normal Givi's I had on mine

Did my first trip on a Versys, last summer, to the Kootenays. The summit of the Salmo Creston Pass:



These things are absolutely brilliant.

Couple questions; I see some have Alaskan Sheep butt pads on their rides, are they comfortable and are they the Delux Pillion 1's ? Also AustinJake, what tires are those?

Of all the hard cases for any bike I think Trax are the sharpest. Sleek and industrial.

I followed up on my order with Twisted Throttle yesterday on the phone. I ordered the first generation Trax cases. It seems they were out of "rights" (or "lefts) and asked me if I wanted the second-gen "Evo" cases for $10 more, as they were both in stock and ready to ship.

Apparently, they look the same and have the same dimensions, but the hinges and latches have been upgraded, and the logo is stamped into the side instead of a rivited-on plate.

For my trouble, they threw in free shipping, so I saved $46 bucks!

Woo-hoo! Way to go Twisted Throttle! (I love those guys!)

I have the 1.5-1st Gen Trax cases (in the picture) and they leak. The 2nd-1st Gen came with the corners sealed during manufacture and some report they still get some leakage. The latest Evo cases have a single piece lip/seal/channel rather than the multipiece of the 1st gen cases. They 2nd Gen Evo cases also have upgraded lock/latches. I'm in the process of passing my current Trax set to my son for his Wee Strom and I'm going to replace them with a 2nd Gen/Evo set later this summer. You did well with the upgrade!
