Luggage - hard top case, soft side luggage


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


I am looking for soft side luggage and a top hard case.  I was just wondering if you guys have any recommendations for some combinations of those. 

I was looking at the AS side racks and Kriega OS18 combo and I loved it since it wouldn’t make the bike too big. And for the top case, I ride in the city as well (use the bike to commute from time to time) and definitely need to lock the case so can’t use soft luggage for that. 

Do you guys have any experience with AdventureSpecs side rack and some rack for top case? 
Also is AS rack and OS18 fine with the exhaust and do you have experience with having a passenger there as well? Do they have enough leg space there?


any pictures would be welcome


thanks for any recommendations

You might have better luck installing the Kriega OS 18 on the rally raid side racks as compared to the Adventure Spec version.

On the exhuast front, you can get one of them exhaust protection plates / silicon tubes with metal hose clamps - this will save your bags.


Top case - depends on whether you want metal or the poly top boxes. I have the Givi BN42 poly case on my T7 and it is big enough to put my helmet, wet weather gear and some for commute. On trips, it takes tools, food, sleeping bag + mat.

I can't comment on AS or RR side racks. My Combo for Soft side bags and hard top case is Enduristan Blizzard XL without a side rack and Givi Trekker top case on a Bumot rear luggage rack.

Works pretty good. I also added some Lomo 6.5L dry bags at the bottom of the Blizzards. Pillion has room to sit comfortably, but obviously not full range of motion on the passenger pegs.
