Givi E45.

They offer free shipping. I paid tax since they are in my state but I had it the next day. I've ordered from them 3 or 4 times and service is excellent. I peeled off the cheap red stripe and installed the black and yellow side strip myself to match the side cases. The box will hold my large Shoei full face and my wife's small HJC full face at the same time. I put my hard Igloo cooler in it for work plus my bike cover, rain pants, and extra gloves. For the money the quality is top notch and it can also be used as a side case. Look around and you will find other pictures of bikes where it is in use as side cases. Bang for your buck this may be the nicest case available.

I had a trio of these on my klr, hands down best bang for your buck. I had the set up before I had a car, I'd use these boxes for runs to Costco during the week and bombing down double track on the weekends.

$20 on sale at cycle gear. It comes with a rain cover and expands in height. Fits my tire gauge, fast trak, glasses, & other little things. Perfect for my needs.

Check out the OGIO Moto Super Mini Tanker. I just picked one up on Saturday and have been very impressed with it. It's the perfect size for me.

It attaches to the bike by a ring that mounts on your gas tank ring (see pics). It is quick and secure and goes on and off in seconds. But the best part IMHO is that it doesn't touch the bike. I've had many friends with bags that mount on the surface who have had the bag or the straps rub their pain off (a couple to bare metal).

They make several models besides the city bag that all attach with the quick release ring. The City bag is one of the larger ones. Shown below not expanded. Like all the SW-Motech stuff I've purchased, installation was easy, directions were clear and came with everything I needed. Not the cheapest option out there, but it works well for me!





Here's the ring that's mounted over your gas tank ring.



Here's the underside of the bag with the new and improved lock/release mechanism.

Mainuh, do you have a photo of the city bag showing the whole bike. I was curious about how big it looks and how high it is - does it interfere with view of the gauges.

I use a Rapid Transit Recon 11 strap mount tank bag on my 11, a decent bag that I picked up on a closeout sale...It does everything I need it to do, nice space, looks good, and it has a rain cover too.

+1 on the Bags Connection "City Bag". Lots of room! Doesn't even come close to blocking my view of anything. I'd hate to ride without it. Snaps on/off tank mount with ease. Pricey, though.
