Hammerdown77 Looks good! I wonder if one of the design requirements at Givi for the new cases was to be able to fit a 15" laptop case inside comfortably.

keithert I received the E22 cases I ordered form Sporttour.com. They arrived literally the next day after I ordered them. I am mounting them on SW Motech racks with Givi mounts. The take a very firm push to get the box to seat on the mount screws. Then another firm push down and to the inside to lock the box onto the top mount. Once mounted they don't seem to have any issues. They are a bit harder to mount and dismount than I would have liked though.

The cases look decent and hold what I need them to. My laptop case fits great in them. Compared to the Leatherlyke Cruisers on my Vulcan they are just slightly smaller.

That's what I was thinking too. It looks like there might be a little more leg room for the pillion too maybe. I definitely like the look better.

jrnyer Not the best pictures, but you can get an ideal.
Best thing about having the cases reversed is.....Now I can swing my leg over without bumping the top with my toe......yeah, knee replacement and age.....gotta love it
I think I'm going to leave them reversed, I think they follow the lines of the bike better.

John V Strom, Jr. JR,

Thanks for the photos. I don't think they look bad at all reversed. I'd have to see them in person, but I might actually like it better.

Yeah, you're probably right. I thought once everyone had a chance to see it, the photos would confirm. Again, I was just curious. Still hoping to see pics anyway.
