Man, I second that!! I like the fact that they open up 2 different ways!!

I'm not going to ask what you paid for them, because with Givi, you get what you pay for.. I'm sure they're not cheap, but they're gonna last the life of the bike..

How are those constructed?? Metal over plastic? I must say, the Givis on my Bandit are much easier to load than the Happy Trails on my KLR because of the way they open (and they are 8 years old)

WOW! I've never seen a case that opens up like that. Brilliant idea and they look great on the bike.

For comparison,my HAPPY TRAILS were the 7" (or 71/2") TETONS,33 Liter, very well made,powder coated, two latch-type locks,water proof,etc. They were $599.00. I think an important thing to consider is the weight of the different systems.
Hope this helps any potential buyers, & FWIW:my H.T. System was crash tested @ about 60mph.--not a bit of damage to the boxes/mounting system.
