    the Nelson Rigg CL855 bags are a great value at $115.

    670 yes I like them,I have only used them once then the snow started.I got them because of the top lid on them,nothing to fall out when loaded.I put some thin foam on the bottom.I also have a bigger bag for the back,(not in picture),so no top case needed.

    not at all... I'm flattered! I didn't include the racks because that kind of red-neck engineering isn't popular with some folk.

    Yes... I feel your pain. https://nc700-forum.com/forum/nc700-m...mw-screen.html

    Although I have further modified the windscreen and it seems to work well and it really isn't so ugly as it looks in the pics!

    Fuzzy..are those the 33L Trekkers?

    I'm considering those but would like to see a pic of some 46L Trekkers mounted on a NC7X. I can't help but think the 46s would be way out of proportion to the rest of the bike...and would have a drastic effect on mileage(?)

    Greg, those are the e21 cases.
    One of Givi's few top loading cases.
    See here: Monokey Cases : 21 LITER SIDE CASES MATTE BLACK
    Yes, I got the numbers backwards, the E36s differed from E45s in that the lid (the outer hinged portion when mounted as a side case) was 30mm deeper than an E36 lid. In fact you can buy a set of E45 lids and they fit right onto the 36s. I say differed because the 36s are discontinued and no longer available. E45s are still available.

    33s on the sides. Put the big one on top. I agree the 46 are big for side cases. The 33s hold a lot. Typically the side cases are at home and just the top case on bike.

    One more for the mix.
    With thanks to Turbodeiseli4i6

    These are Givi V35 cases. They look very nice' especially with their color coordinated lids, however they require a dedicated Givi rack. Plus they are pretty wide.

    Here's a combo of the Givi V46 and some Caribou'ed Pelican Storm 2600 cases (with his DIY Givi Mount). I don't think they're all that heavy at 8.5 lbs. For their stoutness, I'm OK with the extra weight. Very easy way to add extra visibility.


    Update: Measurements and Notes
    The general shape of the Caribou/Pelican DIY cases on the Givi Rack is tapered back and down. The top of the cases are wider than the bottom and the front is wider than the rear. If they're going to taper, this is the way I would have them taper since your go/no-go point is right at the front up top.

    Front Top: 35.5" (widest point)
    Front Bottom: 35"
    Rear Top: 33.75"
    Rear Bottom: 33" (narrowest point)

    If you go this route, don't follow Givi's mounting instructions and wear gloves. The instructions tell you to mount the side brackets inside of the angled brackets that attach to the grab handles so that the brackets are closest to the bike after the nut. With the Pelican setup, this doesn't give the mounting locks enough room to turn and engage. Instead, sandwich the side mount bracket between the rear case and the grab rail bracket. It put's it out a little over .25" and lets the Caribou lock turn completely. If you didn't have to do this, the cases would be pretty close to completely parallel vertically, but still tapered the 2" front to back.

    Wear gloves when using Givi mounts because I had a nasty metal splinter come off of one of their nuts as I held it in place while mounting and I've got some pretty thick calloused fingers.

    I'll update with more pics if I remember to pull out my phone when I'm parked for a better sense of how they look. Pictures don't really do this setup justice.
