I always told myself I'd never have a top case because they're ugly. Then I put one on my VStrom with the thinking of "I will only use it for camping trips". I put it on and never took it off once. The darn things are so practical - lots of space, lockable, and they don't add any width so lanesplitting is and tight mountain roads are not influenced at all.

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. Even though we're not legally allowed to lane split in MA....I may partake from time to time so it is nice not to worry about clipping my panniers on some bozo's side view.

As far as the look of them and the lines and such....I don't give a flying F***... If I really want a nice photo I'll just take it off for a sec, snap my shot, then put it back on. With that kind of thought process, you kind of sound like an H.D. ride ... But to each his own. I get it, you don't like the look. Personally, I chose the Givi V46 b/c it was curved and it can hold my backpack full of books. I never like those square shaped ones...I guess that is the H.D. rider in me with that comment

Thanks for posting up the info about changing the tumbler, I do have the extra that came with the bike, but honestly, I am not confident in trying it, I'd probably screw it up. Kudos on getting it to work!

I Ride: 2015 Hypermotard
In a perfect world I'd somehow manage to tour without any luggage. In some cases if I can get my SO interested in meeting me at my destination I can have a extra bag meet me. I didn't want to bother with all the bits needed for sidecases on my 'motard so I just bought a waterproof rolltop bag from Wolfman. It's not perfect, but it only has to be as bulky as the stuff inside it. I like to travel light.

Wellll - you did put it on a V-strom - probably didn't detract too much from the beauty:-)

HAHA seriously. I could never put it on the hyper, because I know if I did it would never come off again.

Yeah the v56 looks like giant ass... but I can sink a helmet, armored jacket and gloves in it with room to spare. As my daily driver it's a must, panniers are for trips or cooler weather where the 'Stich takes up all the room in the top case and the panniers hold the rest.

And yeah, once it's on there... man does it stay on. Dial 1 800 mixalot...
