I bought this case for my new R1200RT since I had been pleased with the Givi V46 on my old R1200RT.
The special adapter plate required for this case on the RT is expensive and hard-to-find, but that's my only complaint.
The fit and finish have been improved over the V46 and the locking mechanism is much better.
I spent about $480 for the case and mounting adapter. The price for the equivalent factory top case is $1,345. !!!!
Recommended.

I bought this strictly for summer riding in the humid midwest. It's the coolest summer jacket I have ever worn.
Pros:
- Perfect ventilation for summer riding.
- Extremely good looking. Even my wife likes it.
- Excellent quality construction and materials.
- Excellent visibility. Pedestrians notice me much more frequently now. I'm hoping that means that drivers do too.
- A great liner. Very comfortable, toasty warm in the mornings, works great as a separate jacket. (I have not tested it in the rain.)
Cons:
- The collar is not that comfortable when closed. The overlap area chafes after an hour or so.
- The pocket zippers (2 outside, 1 inside) are stiff and difficult to operate one-handed.
- It would be nice to have one or two more inside pockets.
Overall: Highly recommended.
P.S. Revzilla service is excellent.

Nolan N104 Helmet - Solid Colors The Nolan N104 Helmet represents an evolutionary step forward in Nolan's helmet line. The N104 is much lighter (7oz) than previous models and features a lower profile, achieved through the use of multiple shell sizes, better aerodynamics and a much larger viewport for increased visibility. The (patented) chin guard rotation mechanism, with elliptical trajectory, makes it possible to minimize the total size of the helmet's front section when the chin guard is open. The sail effect is consequently greatly reduced, increasing rider comfort even when the chin bar is raised. The ultrawide eyeport is the largest of any Nolan helmet, both vertically and laterally, allowing for maximum field of view. The AIRBOOSTER ventilation system is equipped with an air intake in the chin bar, another intake in the brow, and two exhaust vents at the rear. The inner comfort lining includes removable cheekpads, inner liner, neckroll and chin curtain, all of which are washable as well as antifungal and antibacterial. The redesigned comfort liner also accommodates eyeglasses much more easily than before. All Nolan N104 helmets are also N-COM B4 ready ( N-COM B4 is designed expressly for the N104 and is sold separately). Shell Features Injected polycarbonate GE Lexan shell 7oz lighter than the Nolan N103 Two Shell engineering allows Nolan N104 to offer sizes from 2XS to 3XL (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Dimensionally correct sizing allows ample cubic volume in chin/nose area Faceshield Features Face shields are now sized to fit the two different shell sizes (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Ultra wide eye port opening is the largest on any Nolan helmet for superior visibility Shield is changed by a simple push button mechanism Pinlock shield included with each helmet VPS (Vision Protection System) slider bar to lower, push button release for instant retraction VPS lens is scratch and fog resistant Chin Bar Features Centromatic chin guard opening mechanism requires dual action, simultaneous action to prevent accidental opening Dual action opening mechanism is positioned in the centre of the chin guard and allows for easy, one-handed opening Ventilation AIRBOOSTER ventilation system, ensures optimal ventilation where is is most required Air intake in the chin guard draws air in and onto the inside of the faceshield 3 position top vent (closed, crown vent, crown/brow vent) 2 venturi exhaust ports at rear of helmet Plastic vent tube channels in EPS disperse cool air throughout the helmet interior Inner Liner Features removable cheek pads, inner liner, neck roll and wind protector The inner padding of the N104 is easily removable and washable and antibacterial The shape of the inner comfort padding facilitates eyeglass wearing Reflective insert at the centre of the roll neck further improves the rider's visibility at night Neck roll can be removed easily, for more comfort in the warmer months Other Features N-Com Communication System compatible (sold separately) Features Microlock2 quick-release retention system Microlock2 consists of a plastic ergonomic opening lever, and of a second aluminium toothed and holding lever Microlock2 minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening while still making it ergonomic and easy to use Meets or exceeds D.O.T. standards

Pros ---
It's very high quality for the price.
The flip-up works great
Ventilation is good.
Sunvisor is very handy (but too short)
OK ---
The face shield has 4 pre-set positions: closed, 1/3 open, 2/3 open, fully open. It closes automatically about 30 mph.
Cons --
It's too small. Or maybe too round. I wear XL's normally. When I first tried on this XL, it was pretty snug. I wore it around the house for an hour or so and it was bearable. But on my first ride more than a couple of hours, I get very uncomfortable pressure points: forehead, rear crown, both sides of my jaw. It may be too round for my oval head.
Recommended: order a size LARGER than you normally wear.
Yes, I recommend this product.
