Trekker Dolomiti sidecases

Rack installed and did not require relocation of the turn signals.

They looked smaller online

But yeah - I would have preferred something in the 25-30 liter range.

But I wanted locking hard luggage and didn't want plastic. These were the lesser of multiple evils. They detach quite easily and the racks aren't too obtrusive.

Though I'm not an adventure bike person, the cases look quite good - large, sturdy, and they suit the bike. Now all you need is a large hazardous waste or medical waste decal for each side case and you'll be ready to go! You wouldn't have to worry about people crowding you.

I also wonder it you could put popping corn in the right case and make exhaust heat popcorn? Not a bad treat for a rest stop!

Yeah - but the melted butter messes up the inside of the case.

I have NO idea how i missed this - my abject apologies for the extremely late response.

I got the cases from Twisted Throttle, although most of the major sellers have them and all for the same price.

The racks weren't available in the US when I bought them, so I sourced them from Italy. They now appear to be available here, but the supply seems spotty. FWIW, my cost from Italy with shipping was a but less than the US MSRP.
