Givi e55 pictures on a c10
« on: August 18, 2012, 07:17:12 pm »
Hey guys, I have been searching both here and Google to little success. I am considering a Givi e55 for helmet carrying duties while parked for date nights. This is the only time I get to ride with my wife with our 3 kids. I also want it to carry my sons helmet when he gets to ride from school. There are tons of uses. Anyway, I know that you always want more space, and I really like th admore lights.for the case, but I am concerned about the look.

I have a 2003 wit the square box luggage look and the curved and sleek Givi I worry will look out of place. I know, stupid concern by looks are important to me. So if you have an older c10 with this case, can you please post a picture.

Decided to go with Givi Trekker in the 46L.  After couple months I still like the setup.

Not the best picture, but the only one I have on this computer. She was loaded for a coastal haul.

  If you can't get a picture of the E55. Although it might be slightly involved to make it work. I could go out and place my E55 on my C10 rear and snap a picture. Although it would just be sitting on there since I do not have a Givi 128 top case mount on the C10. But the color shouldn't be very far off. An 86 Silver Dammit color and a Silver Givi E55 case/lid. Not a perfect match, but hey, what do you want.  :))

Actually, I am looking at shape and size more than color. Thanks everyone so far.

  If you wind up needing a picture, will you need the saddle bags on also for the picture? I'm guessing yes. Mine are not on the bike either. But if need be, I'll find some time and get a photo. You may need to send me a PM, if you need the photo. I may not be following the thread. So many threads, never enough time to keep up with them all.  :)

You're welcome. I forgot to say that I stacked some stainless steel flat washers under the back two mounting points when I installed the rack otherwised it would not sit horizontal, but instead slope downward from the front of the box to the back of it. It looks much better IMHO sitting parallel to the ground and not like it's about to fly off. I also had to remove the stock rack to install the Givi rack all the way to the bike frame. Much stronger. I happened to lose one or more of the little rubber grommett thingys that keeps it from bouncing when I took it off & on, I got four in a pack (if I recall) from TwistedThrottle.com.

Could be. I can't remember, but I'll check when I go outside.
