    Which topboxes do you guys use? I'm in the market for one, I looked at the BMW box and it was ok...can't key it to the side cases on my 1150gs, so I may as well get another brand, bigger and cheaper in price. Anyone using the Givi E50 topbox? What do you think?

    We just put a Givi E50 on our KLR and it's great. I'm getting used to the looks (I always thought Givi topboxes look like personal floation devices). I've had a Givi 46 liter topbox for a couple of years that's gone to Mexico and Alaska and suffered every form of abuse including overloading, backing into telephone poles, mud thrown up from the back wheel, and it's never complained or leaked a drop of water.

    I've a Givi E450 Simply II with backrest on a R 1150 GS. My girlfriend love it and for me it's quiet ok. It holds two helmets and some little other pieces or my backpack.

    It's complete closed so no water come inside.

    For me a recommandation.

    I will put there some pictures for you tomorrow.
