mine again..

I belive you have seen mine before, but heres the pics-
3x E45 cases (top one has the "George Foreman" toprack )


and these were my former bags... er.. cans... they are military surplus ammo cans, with a home made rack that bolted to the strom's rear alum rack...


I am happy with the Givi setup, this way- I can get different cases later, and just use the existing rack 'cause they are all interchangeable!

Hey, thumpy, could you post a pic of how you mounted your rack? I just got mine yesterday and will try to mount it today.

Thanks,
Bill

I got Suzuki bags on my DL. Not as good as for example Givi, but pretty cheap and you can get the same color as the bike. Not too tough also - mine already have plenty of scratches on the blue paint, due to some light offroad riding (no crashes, just going to close to some rocks and bushes).
The good thing is, that the installation is easy (no need to move indicator lights), and with the bags the bike remains very comfortable for two persons - the bags do not interfere with passenger's space (if you know what I mean...)

What bags have passengers reported to be most comfortable? Are there any bags to avoid if you'll be riding with a passenger?

I haven't tested any other cases with the V-strom, but I had some problems with my Transalp - the bike has a Givi Maxxia topcase and Honda side cases. The side cases are ok, but for the Givi there is just not enough space - the case had to be installed in a way, that some of it was hanging above the passenger seat. So the passenger had about 2" less space than without the case. The case couldn't be installed further to the back of the bike, because then about 50% of the case would be behind the bike and that didn't look to safe (I felt that it could easily fall on a bumpy road).
Installing some metal adapter plate underneath the Givi adapter could help here, but I didn't try that.

More of a minimalist approach here, but it worked well for a week long trip I recently took.
