Help me choose a topcase
I've decided to get a topcase rather than panniers, to keep the bike's narrow profile. I can always add panniers later if I'm going on a trip and need the space (but who am I kidding, I'm not going anywhere :-)).
I'm looking for a case that's waterproof, lockable, easily removable, and will hold at least a FF helmet plus some riding gear. I'm leaning towards GIVI because it's the de facto industry standard; they make mounts to fit just about any bike. The cases I'm mainly considering are the E52 or V46 in black (safe choice - goes with everything) but undecided between flat or gloss finish.
Any thoughts/experiences with these cases? Any others I should be looking at? Are the backrest or luggage rack worth getting?
