Guest Kakugo Posted March 4, 2013 Share Posted March 4, 2013 A friend and I are currently planning a long road trip this fall. I usually travel very light so the RT cases and a tank bag are more than enough for me but since this trip is going to take us pretty far from home, I feel more luggage capacity is needed. I am weighing two options at the moment: 1) A large (55L) Givi top case with optional top rack 2) The BMR Flatbed Rack All things considered they'll come off more or less at the same price (Givi top cases have become rabidly expensive). I am not a huge fan of top boxes, especially when riding at highway speeds (and we'll have a lot of highways ahead of us if this thing gets off the ground), but I well appreciate the convenience of having an extra locked compartment. Personally I would have opted for a proper luggage rack to replace the stylish but useless OE unit but since it seems to be unavailable, the BMR looks like the closest thing to it, with the added bonus of a huge flat surface and plenty of attachment points. Opinions and suggestions are greatly appreciated... as always! Link to comment
