To emphasize what I said in my earlier post: Givi does not SELL anything for the Husky. Givi MANUFACTURERS the hard cases that Husky sells.

Giant Loop says their bags "will fit anything carrying a passenger" so I suppose that's close enough, but have you ever used their bags for long distance? I tested something similar and it was a real pain loading and unloading for camping night after night, 5000 miles+. 50 litres seems a tight squeeze . . . would dislike dumping the bike and tearing a $400+ piece of soft luggage.

There many folks who rave about them, here and other places. It may not be what your looking for. I picked up a coyote recently and like it so far, but it will take a season to know for sure. They seem extremely robust, and people fall on them regularly without tearing.

Wolfman doesn't list Husky in their product search and their expedition bags are pretty small.

Only 19 litres, 38 total/pair. Not enough room.

BigDog is one rider running the wolfmans on his Terra using mounts he customized from a KTM. I don't know if he posted on ADV, but they are on his build at bigdogadventures.com.
