Got the Give V56NNA mounted

First thing to go in it, as a ride out to Cyclegear?

One camo cap.

One cage net, now just in case.

Looking to acquire today? Possible rain gear.

Been wet here in FL lately.

I still haven't decided on a tank bag. That would be great for glasses, smokes (until I quit soon).

Raybans are great until totally cloudy, dusk, old coot like me need a couple pairs of glasses and spare.

I got the keep my hair so far gene, but the good eyesight as get older gene apparently flew right by me.

I can't see by the picture, but are you using the Givi mount kit? Make sure you add some sort of bracing to the OEM rack, or otherwise the top case will likely be unstable.

Same bike here.
Same Givi topcase
Used the aluminum SRA3112 rack mount.
Considering the MG3105 rear hugger next? Keeps the dirt down thrown from the tire.

It's ginormous!

That top box is so big that:
Your passenger could ride inside it when it rains!


Guys...

I know! I carry a bike mechanic 😉!

This size meets my goal of securing two full face helmets when want to, as first storage on my 1KXT plus storage for upcoming trip.

What's not in there yet? A rain jacket.

Freakin' rain today. Did get wet.

I looked around over the weekend but because at 6'3", I'm taller than your average bear, longer arms.

Seems a special order for taller fit is in the works. Even XL arms are short.

^This!

I don't see the side support brackets on your install. The factory top rack is not sturdy enough to carry a top case without them.

What top rack kit did you use for the install?

Two wheelz for realz!

Oh, and I almost went with that case, well the Kappa version, because of its' size! She's a big one!

You'll never regret having too much storage space.

Webfors-

I have the Shad case, but I didn't like the concept of their mounting kit. Plus, the Shad kit is kind of heavy. So, I made my own mounting plate and side braces from aluminum. Givi makes a very solid looking kit.

In this thread, post #17, I had posted some pictures of my braces. https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl1000a...-two-up-2.html
