Givi Trekker/Outback/Dolomiti: Worth the Updgrade?
When I bought my Strom, the bike came with a set of Givi E36 side cases. These cases have worked very well for me over the last 2 years and 20k miles. They are damn near watertight, they snap on an off easy and are a big enough to stash all my goods for a long ride or my Shoei X2 helmet in. However I have 2 complaints:
1) With their clamshell design, when I open it, stuff falls out.
2) They're ugly
I got a set of internal bags which has helped with my falling out dilemma. Now the whole bag falls out, not individual stuff lol. However I am considering upgrading my bags to one of the nicer looking, more adventure styled options from Givi. Are the new bags far superior to my current ones? Does anyone have these and if so, what is your complaints if you have any?
Lastly, which one would you buy and why?
