    Sunday, the Windward side beaches have been closed I took the Vstrom to the Leeward side with the intention of going to Yokohama bay. All of the West side beaches were open until I got to the most NW western point near the Satellite tracking station.

    H1 was pretty quiet. IMG_20200322_164434.jpg

    At the end of the road.

    Before I left I had checked every bolt and fastener after the Givi disaster, everything was good and tight. IMG_20200322_175833.jpg

    As we rode home we could see the police begin to close all the west coach beaches. The plan for the coming week is to lockwire both Givi racks on the PCX and Vstrom.

    Givi has responded by stating "
    we are sorry for what happened but we can say with certainty, that if a suitcase detaches from the frame, the only reason is that it had not been correctly hooked.


    In case there are broken coupling system components, it means that it had been overloaded.


    However, we invite you to contact the retailer where you purchased the suitcase for a first analysis."

    The sidecase latches were engaged and not overloaded, not an operator error. The cheapest option is to just replace the case than start new with a different system. The next bike will have a new system, hopefully Touratech won't go under in the coming global economic collapse.
