Shad Topcases

I just wanted to pass along a top case I just found that looks decent. It looks huge though. I think it's made in Spain? Shad cases. Anyone know anything about them? http://www.shad.es/en/shad-usa/fittings/c12/

Trying to find a good topcase that I won't need to replace is like trying to find a good woman. Thanks for the review link

I have one on my bike. This is it:



It's quality is on a par with Givi. I like mine a lot but you have to search around to find Shad online and Givi is way more accessible.

I have a Shad SH 29 on my K12 wee, before that it spent 12,000 miles on my DR 650 and saw some rough duty, is cheap but has held up well, not a single issue with it....

I have the older style Shad 42 litre, and switch it between my Concours and 650. I have about 75k miles with it, and going strong.
