Review Extension: GIVI E36N Side Cases

IMG_7444Way back in 2007, I wrote a review of the GIVI E36N cases I installed on my 650 V-Strom. I revised it in 2012 and added a little to it, today.

To this day, they are one of my favorite things about my V-Strom. They are reliable, tough, water-tight, and easy to use. My only complaint is that the GIVI plastic is not that friendly to stickers. So, some of my favorite stickers have blown off during the 60,000+ miles I’ve traveled with GIVI cases. Lame complaint, I know.

I think the V-Strom and I are about at the end of our relationship. With the big miles I’ve put on that bike, it won’t be worth much used or in trade, but I really don’t enjoy riding it as much as I did when I was a decade younger. Someone who will use it more than once or twice a year should have it.

  1. I too have enjoyed my Givi equipped Wee Strom. The duo have provided a ton of fun and reliability over the 100,000 miles we have enjoyed together. This pairing have proven themselves the most cost effective do everything moto platform I have had the pleasure to pilot and I see no end in sight. We will be off to Watkins Glen within the hour and I can't wait ��
