Can you post a pic of these Givi hardcases?

I'm debating on getting either the Givi E45 or E36 hard case as a top case. If you own both of these, would you mind posting a pic of them, not on the bike, but just sitting side by side?
I know the E45 is an inch or two deeper than the E36, and the other dimensions the same, but I'd really like to see a pic of them. I just need to see the 'visual' to get a better idea of size. And maybe put a helmet on top of either one too, so I can get a better visual in relation to the helmet.

I would greatly appreciate it, if someone could do that.
Thanks!!

Go for the bigger one... If I could do it again, I would go for the 55. Visually not much different, but every inch of space can be quite handy.

This is what they look like on my bike. If that helps. This is the E45 bare bones box with E36 side cases.

I know you said not on the bike, but thats the best i can do from work.

Thanks for the responses so far guys!

Satch - Thanks for the link. I had that bookmarked but couldn't find it to review before posting my request. Lots of good pics & info there.

Lonestrom - Thanks! That would be great if you could get that for me. Whenever it's convenient for you.

Sexyman - I am leaning towards the 45 liter, but really, either one would suit my needs just fine. Obviously, the bigger one holds more though.

Bugmagnet - Thanks for the pic. Looks good.

I know I'm being a little anal concerning the specific pic I want, but it's more for my wife. She has this "eye" for things, and that depth difference between these two cases is something she wanted to see in a side by side comparison. As long as it's not illegal, I try to satisfy her need for info/pics on matters like these.
I've also learned after 21 yrs of marriage, to "just cooperate". :mrgreen:

I picked up a new Vee a few weeks ago. Went with the E41 monokey side cases and the 55 top case.

SportTour.com in Cincinnati area had the best prices I could find. If you call them, talk to Glen for a slightly better price than what is on the web site.

Do you find the E35 cases sit too far forward to carry a passenger?
