I am thinking about buying a set of these as they look good, and I quite like the idea of the opening panel which lets you get small things out without opening the whole case.

Can anyone with these give me an owners viewpoint?
Thanks,
Lloyd.

Make sure you latch the top hatch closed properly. My wife didn't close the lid tight one afternoon and her favorite fleece blew out somewhere in Ohio. It was a sad time when she realized. I've had mine jammed full of stuff and ridden in torrential rains, no problems so far. I did contact Givi and get a matched set of locks for my e41's and my v46. It makes life a whole lot easier.

I have them as well. I have no complaints with this product. I will second Heavy and say that it is important to make sure the little hatch is shut good. Overall, a good product, in my opinion.

EXCELLENT,EXCELLENT,EXCELLENT!

On my third set (crashed one set and sold a bike with the second). The access lid is the best feature when tons of stuff is packed on top and opening them in the rain would get everything wet.

Not one drop of water inside on any of them............

What a boring thread.. I LOVE mine as well!

In my case I have a Givi E52 that I always have on the back. I don't normally have the side cases on and don't like the look of the sideracks without cases. I got the SW-Motech Quick-Lock racks for the side cases. They work very well and when you remove the racks (which literally take a few seconds) what is left behind is all but invisible.

I like mine, but if I wherre buying new I would look for something narrower. You really have to pay attention through tight spots, and when you lift the bike off the side stand you better make sure you are not too close to the next bike.
