Givi E45 Economy Monokey Luggage Case The E45 cases are classic in style. They have a durable finish which makes them ideal for use on dual sport bikes whilst the conventional style would also compliment any older model bike. The E45 cases are great for use as side cases or as a top case. As with all the cases in the Monokey range 1 key can be used to lock/unlock the case or remove the case from the mount. The E45 case is available in flat black only no painted finishes are available. Accessories for this case include a choice of back pad, and an inner liner.

I got this box primarily for use as a helmet(s) storage for me and my wife. It fits two full face helmets perfectly without having to cram it in. Also, when I commute for work I can fit my helmet and my riding jacket easily.Also, since I have Givi side racks I can use these boxes as sideboxes and they don't look too bad if you squint you eyes really hard. They do add a lot to the width of the bike when you do that and will definitely hurt your highway comfort, especially if it's a lighter bike like mine. I only use these boxes as panniers for camping trips and I pack light so despite the size they don't add much weight.I have to warn you though... these boxes are huge. If you have three of them on, as a top box and panniers, you could probably use your bike as a pontoon boat. But if size is what you want, these are the boxes. The best thing about thim, in my opinion is that they aren't as space-age looking like most of Givi's other boxes, which is a good thing. It's very boring and simple and doesn't catch unnecessary attention.The built quality is good. I can't complain about it at all. The plastics are well engineered to minimize flex and it's very sturdy for its weight, which is fairly light. It won't withstand a heavy fall, but then think about it this way... you could very cheaply replace them than pay a bunch to fix the aluminum ones your crushed.If you are a pure funtion-oriented guy like me you won't mind it's lack of looks. It's cheap. It works. It's simple. Two helmets

Do not install the tank bag without applying a vinyl protector on your tank first, you have to buy that separately of course. The thread stitching underneath the tank strap is really hard and sharp it scratched my tank all over when I was making adjustments. I wish I had realized that before.
The bag otherwise us really good. I wanted something that was minimal and waterproof-ish without needing a rain cover. I don't like the adventure bags that have five hundred different pockets that I never use. This only has one zip and that's it. There is a small divider on the inside so you can stash your phone away from the sharp keys and what nots. The main zip is very tough to operate in the cold though.
The bag, when necessary, detaches from the mounting strap in one fluid motion. 3 seconds at the most. And it installs just as quickly. GL really has designed this one right... Other than the tank scratching issue.

Great product and there are enough review about this out there to last a lifetime but I will add these notes to the other reviews...
If your torso is even slightly longer than average for your height then your belly will definitely stick out and your butt crack will be in view for the world. Trust me. I know.
Because this is designed to be American Fit, there is more than enough room for your beer gut... often in not so flattering ways.
If you're moving, even for temps over 100 it's just as cooling as riding naked, if you've removed the inner liner that is. And talking about the liner, it totally waterproof.

My only negative comment about this helmet is that the the visor doesn't have many incremental clicks for opening. It's either full close, or full open. Anything in between is either going to block the view or make a lot of wind noise. I can't complain about anything else.
NOTE: I would not recommend this helmet on upright/standard bikes if you want minimal vent sound.

Shoei Qwest Solid Helmet The Shoei Qwest Motorcycle Helmet was built with a focus on minimizing helmet weight, optimizing fit for comfort and protection and lowering noise levels to bring a new level of comfort to touring helmets. Featuring a slightly round oval internal shape, the Qwest helmet is manufactured with 4 individual shell sizes to keep the helmet as low-profile as possible. The smaller the helmet shell, the lighter the helmet weight. The Shoei Qwest Helmet also uses the Shoei's CW-1 visor technology with the Q.R.S.A system. This system guarantees a tight seal at the faceshield by pulling the shield back to contact the opening seal evenly. The Qwest also touts an extra-wide viewport for additional peripheral vision so you can more easily take in the world around you. Aerodynamic Shell Design Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and feedback from professional riders Dual-Layer EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation Four shell and six EPS liner sizes increase fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift as well as diminishes weight pressure on the neck while riding at high speeds Ventilation System Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance in high wind conditions Easy to operate large lower intake vent Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation Rear/neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain are included Lightweight Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+) High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient Interior 3D center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance Eyeglass-compatible interior Standard chin strap clip neatly secures chin strap CW-1 Shield and Q.R.S.A. System Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation Spring-loaded base plate pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal Scratch-resistant coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A and B rays Optional, CWF-1 two-dimensional Pinlock equipped racing shields with tear-off posts are available (sold separately) Optional, CW-1 Pinlock prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock Fog Free Inserts (sold separately) The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces A pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow Additional Features Construction AIM+ (Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus Multi Fiber) Weight 3.644 lbs / 1,653 grams (approx, for Size Medium) Standards Snell-M2010, DOT Please Note The vents on the Brilliant Yellow helmet are black, not yellow as shown in product photo. Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, the Qwest Helmet and other Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

Great helmet for features. The inside padding was a bit too tight for me since my head is more round than narrow so I had to modify the foam a little bit. It's a really nicely and thoughtfully designed helmet otherwise.
