Long Way, give it a few days. Not everyone checks the forum every day. There are a number of Island riders, and probably a couple real close to you too.

05 / 650 in blue
88 / KDX 200 in green
81/82 DT 175 Yamahussies
79/SP 370 Suzuki-bad bike-no keep
78/ GT 750 water pumper
75/Suzuki 125 RV

Longway, there are dozens of Stroms in this town. See them everyday all over the place. However it seems only a miniscule % of them post here.

Hey there,

Yes, they are the Givi e-36's. I like them because they are the most "utilitarian" cases that Givi makes, & less exspensive than aluminum cases. I got a pretty good deal because I just bought the bike there. I paid $598. taxes incl. otd for the two bags, & all the mounting hardware. Super easy to instaul, between a half hour to an hour if you take your time. I am goint to get the top case as well but not sure if I want the same or tha e-45. I really like them, good price, & not bad looking at all. They seem to be very popular on the Stroms. Great bang for the buck. I'm pretty sure that the'd be cheaper than $1500. for all three but I didn't get the cost for the top case & mount.

Cheers

How long have you had your bike? I seen quite a few Stroms running around Vic. Only a few post here.
How about a June 16 Strom ride, anyone up for it?

How about a 9am departure to the Clam bucket for lunch in Port Alberni.
We can meet at Tim Horton's by Costco.
