Just mounted these up today. Glad to get rid of my bubbly Givi knock-off. I do a lot of computer work so I decided to mount a smaller one on top for my laptop and gear.

What kind of cases are those and how are they mounted?

They are Seahorse cases. The top an SE710 and the bottom an SE720. Both run about $45 and are super tough. They're mounted with $6 worth of hardware from HomeDepot. I drilled and plugged two holes to access the rack mount bolts.

+1 to the Seahorse cases.

I bought a pair of the Seahorse 720 cases and mounted them on a SW Motech quick release-able rack system. They are much slimmer than running even a pair of Givi E36 cases (which I also have for it). These cases are mounted using a set of Happy Trails pucks, though I find that I pretty much always just leave them on the bike.








I also have a cheesy JC Whitney Trunk that snaps onto the Givi mount plate that you can see in the above pictures. To make the JCW trunk a bit more palatable I fitted the center lens with a zippy V-strom logo. It's just a piece of paper under the red bezel with the logo laser printed on it. ;-)

A few pictures from a gorgeous ride out to the coast. Highway 1 north of Santa Cruz, CA. Gotta love California in January!

I'm so jealous. I got to take a ride down Hwy 1 from Santa Maria to Santa Monica back in September. I miss that road

Good luck with that. They may be OK tires most of the time, but their problems are well-documented and undeniable. With so many other good choices out there, I would never take that risk.

I put on 705's for a 5k mile trip, and hated myself for it afterwards. They're OK, but don't really do anything well. And for some reason, 705's + tar snakes = near death

Here is mine as of now. 2011 Wee ABS.



Farkles:

Centerstand
Panniers
Engine guards
Hand Guards (Suzuki)
Skid Plate
Highway pegs
Windshield (Cee Baily)
Garmin GPS
Alaskan Leather Wool seat pad
(Panniers, guards, pegs, skid plate and centerstand were from Happy Trails)

Bought it to make a trip to Alaska and perhaps Mexico - to be a stablemate to the 1520cc Valkyrie, but just cranked the Valk back up (first time since May). Find myself riding the Vstrom everywhere now. Awesome little bike!!!!!
