Has anyone installed the BIG Givi 58L topbox?

If you have, can you post some pics? I've been looking everywhere and have seen plenty of close ups, but not many from a wider perspective that really shows how it looks installed in proportion to the bike. I'm considering this big box for my 650, to go along with the 37L side panniers, but am on the fence (especially considering the $).

Thanks

I don't have the 58L top case, but mine is the 52L TREKKER TRK52N, maybe it can give you an ideia of the size.

Sorry for the double post, but I cannot yet edit my posts.

Here is another from a wider perspective, my V-Strom next to my friend's GS.

Yes, I like the looks of this one too, and might go to it if I decide the 58L is too unwieldy. Quite a bit cheaper too.

Thanks!

This is how it looks on my V2

One thing to note, the box itself weighs about 15 lbs, which is close to max on tail end, when you load it up it can be considerably heavier. I rode mine like this up the Dempster and it was fine, my front fork seal blew out, but tail end did not fall off and that was hella bumpy, so I think the weight limit mentioned is low, but use your own discretion.

Thanks for posting that up, Bugz. Doesn't look too big at all (from that angle anyway).

I hear ya on the weight factor, but I'm not too concerned, as mine will probably be mostly empty while traveling, except for short end of day runs carrying evening camp supplies (food & drink). Otherwise, it'll mostly be used for secure storage of my helmet/riding suit/boots when away from the bike.

If there are any more pics out there, I'm all eyes!

Can't speak for the 58 but I had the E52 and it swallowed 2 full helmets. Not sure if I'd go bigger. That's a lot of wind resistance back there. I have a V46 and V47 now and very stable to triple digits. Next one will be bigger though and prolly a Trecker or equivalent.
