Luggage suggestions

Gang;
I'm familiar with the rear case from the Kawa website, but does anyone have any suggestions on a rear one that may be better/more secure?
Thanks.

Both look great on your Bike! I guess both styles would hold two full face helmets right? Do you also use saddlebags?

the 55 i know will hold 2 full face helmets. the 46 not so sure the main reason i got the 55 is because i have a scorpion 900 modular XL helmet and it was a pain to fit in the 46 took out the map holder made it easier to fit. i had some soft saddle bags for awhile but i felt it killed the looks of the bike if i were going a long journey i would use some. the 55 with the tail bag carries quite a bit.

The Kasasaki branded top case, in addition to being small, is from the Monolock line, which are cheaper cases aimed at scooters. The V46 recommended above is much larger and better made (and it also costs more and you need to buy the mounting plate separately). I'd recommend using the Kawasaki/SW-Motech rack instead of the Givi one, it has better support and fit. I also think it looks better, but that is an aesthetics questions which is more personal preference.
