Unhappy Had the best side cases...now

On my 2009 I had Givi E45NJ side cases. They were better then crash bars. Held up in crash that totaled my bike. I took them off the KLR and gave one to my brother for a top case on his Concours 14. I did the same on my C 14.

Before that off road if the bike went down. You could hardly see any damage to the cases. They stuck out far enough to protect the bike in most lite crashes.

They held a lot of stuff for camping or grocery shopping. The Givi rack was great with the quick release system. Inexpensive, tough and looked good.

The reason for this post is, they are discontinued. I'd like to get another set for my 2013. Or if there is something out there of the same quality and most of all price. I'd like to know.

The (can) cases dent and scratch, these things would take the impact and flex. No paint to scratch, molded plastic.

Tried to post a picture of the 09. Internet is very slow here at the South Pole. Can't wait to get to the land of real internet, and ride.

Thanks for any input.

For only being one liter more in size. It looks massive for side bags.

Sorry about post on wrong site. Tried to delete, but severely lacking in computer skills.

No problem on the section thing, I think most people have their default set to the home page that shows all the newest posts anyway . Shunted it up to Bike and Rider gear anyway though to help people who might be searching out case info.
