Best place to buy cases in Canada?

Hey Folks,

Where is the best place (i.e. cheapest) to buy aftermarket top and side cases in Canada. Approximately how much are they (say Givi's)?

Thanks

I think the Givi's are sold exclusively by a retailer out of Quebec. Their prices were pretty steep if I remember correctly.

I bought my GIVI stuff at GT bikes in Ajax. The distributor is Thibault in Quebec. Most bike shops can order them for you.

Here are the links for GIVI Canada and GT Bikes:

Hope that helps...:-P

I bought my GiVI cases from my local Suzuki Dealer. Prices in Canada are cheaper than in the USA for GIVI cases, plus she gives a discount.

2015 DL1000 New July 2015 200,000+ km, 125,000 miles.

Nova Scotia. Can get them from a dealer.

I thought there might be an discount online warehouse or something in Ontario.

Roughly how much?

Thanks.

With a little effort, you can find that Importations Thibault has quite a comprehensive web page and they actually have a givi.ca link posted on their english start page. Retail prices are there. Figure about a 15% discount, if it is too much effort to call local dealers and ask.

lazy

easy to find

don't strain yourself

Sorry folks. I assumed at least someone had bought these and would know the price off the top of their heads.

Don't even have the bike yet, just trying to do some research before heading into a dealer.
