Some luggage for my wee.......I never had a bike with luggage before, but I have the itch to travel some and need it. I was looking at the Givi V35's, but I am also looking at the OEM side touring bags/cases.
Any and all opinions welcome, and pictures if you got em!
I'll likely go with Caribou cases when/if I end up with a bike. I like the idea of a submersible water proof case. Plus, I think they'll take a pretty good beating and still look almost like new. There have been some complaits about the locks on the Suzuki.
Search for tool tube to find ways people have dealt with the extra space one the side w/o exhaust.
I see the decision something like this:
Areodynamic or Box.
If areodynamic, see Givi or Suzuki, perhaps a couple of more (JC Whitneys are super cheap.
If box, choose aluminum or Pelican H2o proof (Pelican style) plastic boxes.
If Pelican style choose from Caribou or twisted throttle or use one of the racks & kits to rig your own.
If aluminum, choose from SW motec, Happy Trail, Jesse and a bevy of other designs.
Check this on going thread.
