I told her I would never say she's getting fat. I would merely suggest we go for longer walks


All kidding aside, the case does look large, but if you need a large case, those look pretty durable.

Yeah, topbox only as I've already got OEM panniers.

Unfortunately the OEM saddle bags dictate a completely differnet rail system which complicates the addition of the TRAX panniers at a later date.

Ha! Don't invest just yet. I'll be keeping the OEM panniers for quite some time if not the duration; given the cost of the TRAX upgrade and the simple fact that I don't need THAT much damn storage. If anything it will just influence the bad habit of overpacking.

Overpacking is easy on a bike trip when you have the space. My bud has a BMW with tri-cases. He swore he was going to scale back this year. I think he left the kitchen sink at home.

"No, Honey, you're not fat, it's just that you aren't very, uh, 'aerodynamic'?" *fail - SLAP!*

Seriously, though, they look like cases I've carried electrical equipment in.

On a bike that already can't handle too much wind, wouldn't the flat sides make it worse?

Other than that, I think they look cool.

My bike handles wind just fine.

Wait, so do you already have these installed? And the wind isn't that bad?

Or, you're bike handles wind just fine right now and you're wondering about getting these?

I do have to say, I like these better than anything Givi has. Functionality they have, but DANG are they ugly.
