For all you top case haters, itís size and presence is magnified by proximity and angle of the camera.   It is a top case, and thus ugly by nature, but in the flesh it doesnít look so big.

I feel you, I run a big (30 or 40l) H&B topcase on the Breva, since Lupe likes the backrest... But it looks terrible!

This is my Roamer wearing it's traveling clothes.   I just installed the Agostini cans, and they are absouletly marvolus!  With db killers in, they are very deep, and significantly more robust than stock, but not too loud.   I haven't tried them without dbs, as I'm sure they would be louder than I want, plus it seem to run very well with dbs in.   Anyway, back to the fun.  The c-bow bags from H&B can mount in either direction.   I had them on with the blunt side forward, as it just seemed that's the way they flow with the bike.  However, I buddy informend me that I had them on backward!  And he had a good point, they are more aerodynamic with the oval pointing forward, what do you Jerks think?  Really, who give a poop, but apparently I must, as I'm asking! ha ha     I still think they look better blunt side forward, feel free to cast your vote.


Chad - It's a white V9 Roamer, it would look cool as heck whatever traveling clothes it was wearing ..... just like mine  :grin:

WRONG!!!!!! Look at the "flow" of the bags. Just backwards!!!

S/B blunt forward and streaming off the rear!

OK-OK - Tomato-ToMATO...Potato-PoTATO - - We are splitting hairs here... :rolleyes: :shocked: :huh:

...and of course, if you don't want to install BAGS...there is always the expandable CORTECH "TAIL-BAG", which I used quite often...

JJ, I've had one of the Cortech bags for at least 15 years, and it's one of the best luggage accessories I ever owned.  It's gone on several multi-day trips on different bikes I've owned over the years.
