    Bike bling

    Bought new bags for my beauty! My hubs affectionately calls my bike the grocery cart because of all the storage.

    I recently installed givi e22s on mine. I went to the grocery store and bought a good bit. An old lady came up to me and wanted to see how I would fit it all in, and then bemoaned the fact that at 84, she didn't think she could ride a motorcycle.

    I looked at the 22's and almost bought them, but thought they would be small because when I started thinking about what I need to carry when taking new motorcycle students out in the traffic course, I am carrying student junk, my junk, first aid kit and a teaching binder.

    I decided not to get a topcase because of the frunk. Gosh I LOVE the frunk!

    I went out grocery shopping yesterday and got a ton of stuff and still had an empty side case! My hubby jokingly calls my bike the 2 wheeled grocery cart. Bike bling-image-jpg Bike bling-image-jpg

    Nice! Those Givi V35 cases are top notch. I have the Kappa K33 cases which are very similar on my NC700X.
    I ride a black 2015 Honda NC700X DCT, and I love it.

    I was looking at the Kappa, but a local dealer had a set of the V35 in stock at a steep discount and when I bought racks, it was actually under $500. Kappa and Givi are the same company. I am loving these!
