I have had the V35 and now the 33 liter Trekker cases. I would never buy the V35 cases , unless this is going to be a show bike and appearance is everything. I have photo's of both on this forum , however to explain the difference, the V35 left case always has everything fall out when on the kickstand.
The Trekker has the option of top loading or suitcase opening, just a matter of flipping a lever inside, second thing is I can put my left case on the right side of the bike and the right on the left. What I have done is put reflective tape on the side and rear of each case, thus designating what is left and right. The second thing is even though they weren't designed as auxiliary crash protection, I have gone down 3 times now, twice on pavement and once on gravel.I have better photos , just waiting for some possible changes.
Plus I have backed into a Subaru I own and put a ding in it, gees it almost sounds like I should stop riding. Well the gravel was grounds for a lawsuit with the county, 6 inches deep gravel would cause even a car to lose control, the ding, was the car parked too close to the garage and I was backing out, going down on pavement all under 3 KM per hour, one was some bad news on my cell phone with a full tank of fuel, not fully focused and doing a 180 turning left, still in second gear, the other , again not fully focused with what my riding buddy was doing and the choice of rear ending him or push steering and front braking, I chose braking ,which is what I did, again below 3 KM per hour, told my riding buddy the bike needed a rest, that is when I discovered the tip over switch locks out the ECU and keying off is the only way the bike will fire.
