Top loaders make life a lot easier, they're waterproof & your stuff doesn't fall in the crud when you open them. Best thing I ever did, the Givi's & the Triumph boxes are in the loft.

Not sure who does a thick & thin in plastic other than oem.

Oh ok, for some reason I thought you still had Givi's,  as you know I dont do panniers, but then its only ever me on the bike so rollbags and/or topbox is plenty

Yes, it's 90% only me on mine but I like the weight to be packed low as possible, I don't have anything on the seat & very little in topbox. Just personal choice, each to their own eh.

Re the Givi's - The only Givi's I've had, the ones in the loft, are the old E36's that were on my 900 Sprint, I did later fit them to my ST1050 'cos the OE panniers were shoite & went in the loft. The OE panniers on the ST955 were very good.

True about low weight though, I dont have much option when Im using the bike for work and have to have my laptop and toolbag in the topbox, but there is no doubt the handling is affected somewhat

2 x E36 and a E45 top box, great boxes, good shape and very strong..
