:confused:I would like to put on a set of Givi side hard cases & would also like to add protective bars-crash bars for the luggage. Does anyone have any idea where I can find such a product? Givi doesn't make them...???

I don't see the point. Givi sells lids separately. I got lids for E36s on a crashed bike for $50, which is probably less than crash bars would cost. With new lids after a 100mph crash, the bags were pristine.

I'm the other way around: I'd get crash bars if I could install cases onto them.

I think a pair of E21 cases mounted onto engine guards would be very useful.

I consider my Givi E-41's to be part of my crash protection. As Greywolf says, the replacement parts for the bags are not expensive and the hard bags have been documented here as doing a pretty good job of protecting the bike from damage.

Thanks for the input gentleman! If the Givi side cases are that well made & you can buy the lids separately (if needed) then that is all I need. I never owned hard side bags & was hoping the quality was good. By the way Greywolf, I am originally from Downers Grove-how's your Spring riding weather?

Wet. I've rarely seen so many flood warnings.

I just crashed on my E45's at roughly 50mph, and they held up fine. I might replace the lids someday (rashed) but they're perfectly workable.

Crash bars back there will do nothing but (a) limit your cornering clearance further and (b) add weight.

+1 to all the others said. Also consider that the Givi's (except the E21s) make the bike quite wide on their own. Adding crash bars outboard of the bags would likely require an escort truck and flashers...
