Aesthetic Decision

I have a black Vee2 with Givi windscreen and Trekker Outback panniers in silver finish. I've been considering getting a Givi Dolomiti top case in black. Just wondering if I'd regret not buying a silver Trekker Outback or Kappa top case that would match the more angular design of the already owned Trekker panniers. I've searched for pictures of such a setup but haven't come across anything.

My bike was like that for a while, it was fine, looked OK, functional. I did switch to the matching top case eventually though because I wanted a bit more luggage space.

I'm more interested in the riding location than the luggage!

If you're concerned about aesthetics you shouldn't have bought a VStrom.
Macdoc, vinnyvavoom and Hol like this.
