Givi Boxes....

Good Morning!

I just ordered the SW Motech rack for top boxes. Now, I need some help with opinions on topbox size. I want about the smallest one that is liveable with. I tend to use my bike that is set-up for carrying to run errands during the summer and take 2-3 day trips (packing light). So, how many liters do you think would be just right???

Thanks, Steve

Did you get the robust monkey rack? Monolock can only safely carry lighter weights than key. The larger the better and get the brake light option. Good luck!

The real question is, will you be taking a wife or girlfriend with you on the 2-3 day trips? If so, get the biggest one possible!

She rides her own bike, the 599 at the far end of the avitar picture. She uses a tankbag and it is usually just an overnight trip when she goes along.

Again, I don't want a really big one, but one just big enough for the minimum stuff. Thoughts???

Thanks, Steve

In case you decide on a Givi E360, I have one for sale. PM me if you are interested.

I have the E370 Givi. I don't know the capacity but I've had it for years and have made many solo multi-day trips with it. When used in conjunction with a tankbag and whatever else I could strap on between me and the box, it has been just barely adequate. If I need more capacity, I just drive the car.

Thanks. I'm leaning toward the E35 Traffic II. Partially due to the size (35 liters) and partially due to the shape (more upright, like yours).

Thanks, Steve
