Has anyone installed a big GIVI E55, E52 or V46? Shad 48 or Shad 50 on their GT300i?

This guy put SH48 on his People:
http://www.justgottascoot.com/peoplegti300.htm

..and I have SH50 on the Downtown 300:

One thing to have in mind.. the SH50 is at least 50% heavier then the
SH48 and if I had known that before, I would have gone for the 48 too.

I have a MC dealer that sells Kymco 25miles from me. The People 300i catches my eye & when I get to his place there is a new People 200i I can test ride but the 300i would be an ordered in scoot,priced @ $4,700 + sales tax. I'm left wondering how well the 200i will help me decide on a 300i?
Not many Kymco scoots out there used in whole USA, so likely new Kymco/SYM compared to used other brand scoots for me.
I really wish Kymco would put ABS on the People scoots!
I have a Shad 42 litre topcase on my MC & it's a good one but the 1st they sent me had a warped lid & the importer in Miami is kind of hard to deal with-my retailer dropped their line over the time it took,etc., to get mine right.

The 200i is the exact same size and weight as the 300i. the difference is the engine size only.

Not mine but there is a 300i in the classifieds here with less than 2000 miles for $3500 firm. Seems like a smokin deal to me. It's not that far from you either.

He sold that to the guy in FL a few days ago...Plus I dislike that color! The weakest gold paint I've ever seen & I done even like the "better" golds. I'd have painted it black or red in my own shop.

Hey! Don't be bad mouthing my GOLD GT! LOL

My 300 is going to have a fun life. It's first trip is to Springfield, Il from Daytona Beach to announce the Springfield Mile Grand National Flat Track race. Leaving there to ride to Road America @ Elkhart Lake, Wi to announce the AMA Pro Road Race there then home to Daytona. Going to ride that little beast about 30k miles this year chasing the Grand National and Road Race tours. It's going to be a scooter kind of year.

It has an ErMax windshield that I hope works ok. If not I will need to sort out the aero for Interstate work. Adding a GIVI E52 top box for additional storage. Going to be a fun year.

Kentucky-how ironic that you got the deal out from under "kantuckid"! I have a MC for sale & as we're retired I would have been a slow but potential buyer-in spite of the gold...
Honestly I never liked that color & as a "shop guy" I'd have repainted it Porsche red or white pearl maybe. Keep us posted here on the scoot and the service it gives. I do kind of like the 2012 Suzuki orange metallic color as has more pizzazz.
I'm especially curious on how that sort of scoot does in crosswinds @ hwy speeds? Having ridden MC's in the wind a bunch , what with their more weight & gyro working for you it's a real concern. Staying tuned.
Damasovi, if I buy one of these it will go to Mexico with me but unlikely to get as far west as your spot. FWIW, my 1st trip to Ensenada was in 1954,2nd was 1956,3rd was 1972 & 4th was in the 1990's.

White pearl would look great on the bike. I will keep you updated as the miles roll by.

KantuSIR,

you come this way very little! I think you need to come have some tacos and cerverza... and then you will remember the beauty of this land!

I am in the market for a bigger scooter and this one of the 2 or that are up to size for me.

I remember!!! we were in Baja on a fly & drive this winter(on the Cortez coast above the touristy area) & I ride the mainland in the winter on MC. Few places in Mexico that I have not seen. I have a friend in Michoacan, his daughter was attending a technical school in Ensenada. He lives in Morelia & he is from Patzcuaro.
