You catch anything on that trip? Looks like a fly fishing rod case on the other side. Any pics of how you have that mounted?
Nelson-Riggs SB900s I think. The flyrod case is just stuffed under the straps. Waders and tackle in the side bags. 90 mile trip to this fishing hole.



Here's what went in the cooler under ice for the trip home.

I ordered my side cases and rack from amotostuff and my side cases and rack from sporttour.com. The ones from Sporttour shipped directly from Givi (I think it was from NC) and they offer free shipping. Good quality basic luggage for a nice price.

another question please. Those luggage racks don't look flat on the sides. Do they have a special clasp to mount the panniers? I'm asking because I've already got some mermite cans that I can adjust and mount on for no additional cost and was considering doing that instead of the side cases.

If there are clasps however then it won't work.

They are flat where the cases mount.

what is that tab or latch on the top for? I'm worried about that getting in the way if I want to use my own bags.


maybe i should just spring for the full setup. I've got 6 weeks to figure it out before heading to Kentucky.

That setup looks great with your OrangeStrom. Very nice....do you know the part number of the mount for the topcase by any chance, do you order it separately from the topcase? Is that the factory gel seat? You likee? My god, I've exhausted myself with all the questions...Thanks much.

I've been searching for a thread on the lack of symetry of the normal cases. I really like the set up Wulf and the fact the bike is now 'balanced'. I just think it looks so much better. I love the 'look' of the 1000... just would rather have the 650 :). This works nicely. Kudos

How does the bike handle with those on and loaded down? Is wind a problem? How about acceleration? Man that looks good.

Those are really excellent looking. I think the more "traditional" design (ie- not all bubbly and space-age looking) really compliments the bike.

Had passengers on the bike with those side cases? Does the passenger still have foot room?

Thanks- Ryan

That's where the Givi cases lock on to. I think it is secured to the case frame with a screw and should be easy to remove. Or you could grind or cut it off with a saw. I can take a closer look this evening.

The top case mount is the E528 and can be ordered and used separately from the side cases. It's the factory gel seat I currently have on my bike. For a short review with pictures and comparison between the stock, gel and sargent seat, check here:

I like the symmetrical look as well and my main reason for choosing this setup. I have seen pictures of the Givi rack with 2 cases of the same size and just didn't like the look. Iirc, the left of the rack is 1 1/2" closer to the frame which is exactly the same width difference between the E45 and E36. There are racks that have the same dimensions on each side but they leave a rather large gap on the left. I think I'll install one of those tool tubes on the left to fill up the space.

It handles fine but you feel the extra weight. It also depends how much stuff you pack in them, of course. I have only used them for one 1,500 mile trip so far (200 miles on gravel roads) and they have been great so far.
