CuddyBuddy...sorry to hear about your motorcycle but GLAD you're OK!!!

As for side cases I think it's going to depend on what you intend to use them for. With my 2018 Versys I went back and forth on the side cases. I've always been a Shad fan but the ones I liked were only made for smaller bikes. Eventually, I settled for the OEM cases as 1) They complement the bike's lines very well (IMO) and, 2) As I don't always use the side cases I liked the look of NOT having ugly brackets sitting there while the side cases are off.

I did go with the Givi 47L top case and that thing holds everything I normally ride with.

With all that said, I'm not necessarily all about the looks but when I analyzed the prices all brands came out pretty much even. I figured the OEM's were just the same as the others. I'm not a fan of the box cases but they are the only ones that are top-loaded, which I do like. (I did get a discount on the OEM bags from my dealer, which knocked the OEM price down closer to Shad's and Givi's. Maybe you can do the same from your local dealer!)
