    I ordered one of the small ones for my Uly. Wasn't able to get the JCW service person to understand the sale price/free mount and free shipping concept, so I just ordered another $5 worth of stuff to get free shipping. Still looks like a really good deal and hopefully will kinda match my existing hard bags.

    Did you buy one and how about the quality?

    Yeah you cant go to far wrong at that price but sometimes you get what you pay for also. And sometimes you get a heck of a deal.....

    If you did get one how much use have you given it?
    Any detailed photos?

    Thanks

    I have the "medium" version. Put many good street miles on it. They first sent out a plastic molded base plate (low quality IMO, but worked), but 4 months later sent me a nice metal plate (what they send now), and a $10 gift certificate apologizing IF my first one had broke.... which it did not. So that was stand-up. I would buy another one.

    However... recently, it was sitting on top of the garbage can, for just a few minutes of course, and the cat jumped up there and starting rubbin' on it... slid off, hit the cement and broke at the hinges. It was unlocked and partially open at the time too, so that helped contribute.

    I would still buy another one.

    It works,

    At the last checkout step it reduces the price to $47.99. Then kicked out the free shipping.:huh

    I bought a $3.49 bungee cord set. That put the order to 51 and some change. Got the free shipping.:wink:

    Thanks for the heads up handypro.

    way to go guys..........I ordered 3 from my Triumph.......all I need is some side racks and I'll have a full set of hardbags for under 3 bills....the guys at COG are all over them, so they have pretty much been battle tested and for the price you could by three of them for the price of the cheapest Givi in the same size...........

    You must use the link above and the promo too. JC Whitney is strange about having multiple prices going on. That is why Catalog # is so critcal when ordering. I did a quick search while in the site and it went to the $84 version. So, I just went back to the link above and all Good. :clap

    JCWhitney has a deal if you add the letter E between the 2nd and 3rd digit of a part number it reduces the price to a sale price. Example is below for this trunk which is identical.

    Part: ZX277021 Price $64.99

    Part ZXE277021 Price $44.99

    I hope this helps out to your fellow adv riders.

    just ordered one for the wifes fjr it looks like a good cheap backrest option for when we take the kids!!
    she does not like the look of a trunk on her fjr so she won't use it and i hated to spend 500 bucks or more for something to use once every couple of months(that is as often as we take the kids out riding with us) and the backrests out ther for the fjr are from 150-300 bucks unless you buy the corbin seat for 400!!! so i think this a perfect inexpensive option thanks for the link and i will let every one know what we think of it!!!
    and go all the way through the checkout and it will change the price got the trunk the backrest the mounting plate and a helmet liner(to push it over 50 bucks) for 52.50!!! awesome deal!!!!

    I just recvd my trunks today...pretty quick ship if you ask me. I think I ordered them the beginning of the week. Could'nt be happier especially knowing what I paid for my Givi E45 with a backrest and mounting plate. I'm pretty sure it was about 3 bills just for my trunk. SW Motech makes some nice side mounting brax for my Triumph that come off in 30 seconds w/o tools. So.........a full set of hard luggage for $350 is pretty durn good. I think thats what the factory trunk sells for and the panniers are a kilobuck.:clap :evil :clap :evil :clap :lol3 :lol3 :eek1 :eek1 :clap :lol3 :clap :evil :rofl :rofl :rofl
