as mentioned earlier, i hve the givi V35 side boxes n the E350N top box. the side boxes come in quite close to the passenger foot pegs n this makes mounting the bike a rather "thread carefully" kinda affair especially with heavy biker boots. you cannot mount on securely with the left foot at right angle to the peg, but rather step on in the same direction of the peg and then turn the foot round when seated. makes it a little tricky when wet. and with the top box, the passenger cannot swing his/her legs over but squeeze between the rider n top box. if its big papa or mama mounting the bike, just gotta be very careful with the weight distribution to avoid a tip over, especially if the rider is on tip toes. then when underway, not much room for passenger to move her legs backwards. but she likes it tat way because the side n top boxes kind of cocoons her n makes her feel snug, without fear of falling off.
