    If your like me and think motorcycle luggage costs are outrageous you might be interested in this. Watertight cases at Canadian Tire. 1/2 price $74.00 for the medium size made in Italy I wouldn't be surprised if it were the same company that makes Givi.

    Princess is another one I don't mind, although be very careful when online ordering. I ordered two LED shop lights. Only received one, and the customer service was so horrible they would not give me money back or the product. That was online only though.

    Princess case for top box; CTC Maximum cases for side boxes. I also have two of the larger Princess cases for trips. On the bike since 2017 and show no wear of hinges/latches/seals.

    No. But it does come with a seasonal forecast written in ‘KLRese’.

    I'd guess not but it sure isn't marked "property of Xxxxxx dairy".The green ones (KLR style?:evil) in BC are Island Farms.And yes there was a deposit of $3-4.00 ea.on them, I must have signed off on thousands of them over the years.

    Eh.....I saw some yellow ones/Dairyland at $5.00 ea in the local Kootenay Farcebook Marketplace recently!:evilAnd even a wtb ad locally!

    Picked up a set of those cases December of 2018 for $50 each, grabbed 2 more in 2019 for $75 each

    Attached the 1st pair to my 2018 GROM; The_Filly now wants a set for her 2017 GROM for when she starts using it to commute to work . I also have the GIVI E450 top case

    The_Filly's bike has the E350 top case

    I'm assuming they are "quick" detachable? If so how did you do that? Looking for a better option for The_Filly's GROM

    Night_Wolf; just saw your post about my side cases. They are detachable but not "QUICK". I made a framework that utilizes the BMW mounting loop and the top is on the stud beside the seat and held with an acorn nut. If I used a wingnut I could remove without tools. If you look in the picture inboard on the left case you can see the standoff part of the mount with a lynch pin to hold the frame to the original BMW loop. There are two stand offs per side. Not pretty but practical.

    I had a welder friend fabricate the racks on my GROM & purchased bolts, washers, "hitch" pins (with the little holes) for the bottom mounts & "Star" knobs & bolts for the top mounts. Just wondering if someone found a better way
