Where to get your bags and stuff

I was looking on Kawi.com and the bags price seams reasonable, but 220 for the brackets seems a little high. So where are you guys ordering your bags/racks/stuff from.

thanks, looks like they have a better price on the rack, but don't show the bag in the green or blue, just silver or black.

Check out the Quick Lock Contour Racks on Twisted Throttle. They will work with the color-matched bags you get from Kawi. Or the Givi V35 that TTsells. Same bag. The rack detaches and just leaves the mounts, very subtle.
If you like, I have a set of the racks that I installed but never ran with. I decided on soft bags for my Dirty-Tourer. Already sent my Silver bags back to TT after a week on the Forum.

Try http://www.patwalshdesigns.com/ , Gary is a nice guy and will direct you if he can't help. He has helped my wife with her Versys.
Also , soft luggage is a good option, but you should have a rack either way you go. I do not suggest getting Kawasaki OEM luggage, very expensive and options are limited.

eBay. There is a guy in Calgary that does decent deals on Givi.

Well it doesn't look like i can find the color matched bags online through anyone except kawasaki. So i think i'm going to order the racks form tt and then get the bags from the dealer.

That looks like the Givi E460 to me (looks like there's Monokey lettering on the red part).

Don't pay attention to my decals ot the BMW logo, just look at the luggage style, etc

These are JCwhitney cases, didn't know that the two would exactly alike

My Apologies DBL. You are right.
I saw a kawasaki SV with three of the cases like yours. Infact the cases I saw looked exactly like my Bestems, brake light and chrome insert. but the GIVI name was on them, even white lettering on the Red reflective plastic. Had no idea GIVI sold cases like yours.

Makes me wonder if everybody uses the same manufactoring company and where is it located.
