Whilst I can't comment on these particular cases, I can say I've had Give cases on a couple of bikes, and always found them to be of good quality, waterproof, and lasting.

Only criticism I have is that the red plastic on the end of the keys is very brittle, and can fail.
Fortunately, I had a three box set-up with identical locks, so had six keys. By the time I sold one bike I was down to three, and with the other, down to two, and one broken but serviceable.

I recommend having spares cut. Otherwise excellent luggage.

I have a set of Givi E-41's that have been through a crash with me on my V-Strom. When I bought my Burgman, I transfered them to my Burgman after buying the mounts for them for the Burgamn. My left box was ground down some on the bottom corner from the crash but is still serviceable. Mine have always leaked a little on the left bag if left outside in a heavy downpour with the motorcycle parked overnight. Never have leaked at all (no matter how hard it rains) as long as I am riding the bike. I expect that Givi is the best luggage on the market as long as you are looking at hard bags. They are certainly among the most rugged. Of course, they cost more too. With quality often comes price.

When it came time to buy a new topbox for the Burgman, I looked at the Bestem line and decided that for the price difference I would buy Bestem this time around. Have not regretted that decision yet.

Those Givi cases are the E360 model, list price is $252.00 each and sold by us dealers for around $202.00 each. Nice cases, only problem is they will not hold a helmet inside, but can be used either as side cases, or a top tail case. The lowest price Givi cases are the E21's, sold in pairs only and for around $160 if I remember correctly. They are not what I would call attractive and take away from most bikes.

Reaper, I don't think he meant "us dealers", I think he meant "U.S. Dealers." Sorry to burst your bubble.

Don't get your panties all up in a wad, here they are for $207.00, I missed them by $5.00 the price must have went up over night when congress was sleeping. Don't you use the internet for shopping, or do you pay retail for everything. You will find that Givi dealers will let their dealers have a discounted price, but all dealers will be selling at the same price. http://www.sporttour.com/shopexd.asp?id=2349

;) Actually all dealers don't sell them at the same price. The photo of the cases posted is of a E360N. BUSA Members may purchase them via my self at $195.00 each including shipping. However they are not the most popular, probably because they are a bit old fashioned. The E41 followed closely by E21 are at the top of the list world wide for the Burgmans.

I do love my E-41's but man on man do they make my Burgman 650 broad in the back. Nevertheless, when traveling on a multi-day trip they can't be beat.

I'm considering a '13 650. I'll trade my '04 650 but I hate to give up my hard Givi saddlebags cause the Sebastian Mueller mounts on my '04 won't fit the '13 model. Are there any hard saddlebag mounts made for the new 650's?
