Well, I'm going to order a set of Givi Side Cases for the new red DL1000K6 that I love so much. It has become my "go to" bike and is ridden each day commuting and most of the time on weekends back and forth to teaching MSF classes. I need some storage on the bike, and have decided to use Givi side cases.

I have a Givi E54 trunk coming and should be here today - too bad I'm teaching an MSF class tonight, so I have to wait to play with the new toys until later this evening.

Keep trying to make my mind up between the E360 and E41 sidecases.

Both are adequate in storage, appearance and ease of use.

However the E41 has that nice little opening where you can get in and get something that you placed on the top.

If anyone has the E41, please tell me if this is worth the extra money.

Thanks in advance.

I've had the E41's since I bought my 1k '06 this April. I don't use them that frequently, as most of what I need fits in the V46 topcase. Whenever I DO use them though, I'm happy the little top flap is there. It no only makes is easy to force in a few extra things at the last minute (not that anyone would EVER overload a case beyong the recommended limits, right?); but they help get the case closed as you can see what it's hanging up on.

As I'm going bike-camping this weekend, I'm sure I'll like it for the few handy things you need to get to quick (camera, water, etc..). For waht it's worth, I don't use a tankbag, so I may be biased by that...

I have the E41's and the top access hatch is handy. Allows you to stuff in a few extras and allows access to them too. I find its a good place to keep water since its low but you can still get at it.

The hatch is not appreciated by the wife, when she doesn't close it properly and it pops open during the trip and her all time favorite fleece shirt ends up on the road somewhere between Columbus, OH and Buffalo, NY. :lol:

How wide is the back end, from outter edge of left to outter edge of right bag? I've thought about going with the E45s for all three - but I'm afraid it wouild make the rear REALLY wide vs. the E35s.

Cheers.

looks like about a mile and a half. really dwarfs my set-up....2 e21 side cases and a n35 top case. but for 1up touring it works just fine....
