The Givi 21's are always on the bike.





The top box is only on for longer rides where I need to bring stuff for overnight.

All four on trips. Top case and tank bag most of the time.

Sometimes a tank bag. Otherwise, ammo can side cases. Had a topbox on my last ride, and while the extra capacity was nice, I hated how it made the bike feel. A whole buncha weight, way up, way high and way out back...ew.

If I gotta take something else for a trip, it gets strapped down and I get a back rest.

For the topbox only crowd: It is worth mentioning that a topbox is the WORST place to load up extra weight. Just sayin'.

Oh, and my ammo cans saved me from other damage yesterday ;)

What's in the duffel bag? Looks to be a similar height as my top box and stuffed to the gills.



Is that a fuel canister strapped to the top of the duffel?

The duffel is filled with camping gear. And normally I'd agree with you, but a top box typically hangs off of the back of the bike...this is sitting on the rear seat.

And yeah, I had 3 canisters strapped down.

A tank bag stays on full time as does a cargo net thingy (whatever they're called) on the rear rack. The Givi 21s stay on most of the time for carrying my Frogg Toggs and those impromptu stops at the grocery store, etc. I add the larger Givis and/or a Givi topcase as needed for trips.

Pelican 1440 side bags, I fabbed the racks and mounted the bags myself
also made a larger luggage plate to strap a dry bag to. Wolfman tank bag is always on the bike as well.

I can not speak to top cases as I do not use one because my wife rides on the back and does not like a top case hence the small back rest I made.



Loaded for 2 up camping..

No Vee or Wee as of yet but the plan is to get one before to long. I am glad I found this thread because I can see different types and sizes of cases(and I guess some of you have two sets of cases) on the bikes to get what I want to put on mine. I had thought of putting my ATV case on it from my KLR, but wasnt sure there was a rack available for a 22" wide soft case. Now I see someone else has one similar, I know it will at least work if I get one made There is a welder about 2 blocks from me that is pretty cool and does stuff reasonably cheap but still quality. I will keep the atv bag on all the time, and probably the side cases to. Thats what I have done so far.

Givi V35 sidecases almost always stay on along with the tank bag. Up top I either have a small top box or my Johnny Rack.

My topcase has two positions. I set it on the rear position for two up and my wife uses it for a back rest. I need to make a small pad for it I guess, but she hasnt complained too much about it.
