Givi Monokey 52 Liter Trekker Case
I'll be honest this felt a bit expensive at first, especially since I needed to get 2 different mounting accessories. Though after installing I've realized that it takes the place of a backpacker and a tank bag and it still holds soon much more! I was also initially worried about weight distribution and weather putting a lot of weight back there would through off the balance but that is not the case at all. I've put up to 60 lbs in there and I barely even notice it's there. Overall I feel like it's a great purchase and would recommend it to anyone.

Good case for the money
This case was easy to install and has worked great. I have the XXL Shoei Hornet X2 helmet that I have to put in sideways to fit as it has the bill on it. I haven't tried but I doubt i could get two in unless the second was much smaller. But for me, I can throw my helmet and mesh jacket in there and not have to worry about someone walking away from it. Its a plastic case so not as sturdy as aluminum cases but I was looking for light weight and that was my trade off.

bigger is better this replaced my givi 47
You would think a 52 would not be that much bigger , but it is because of the way it's shaped . Even though I have a car / cage I rarely use it because I would rather use my bike , so I need the ability to carry a lot of cargo . This top case allows me to do just that . TheReaper!

Great topcase at a decent price
Huge storage capabilities, and seems to have a secure mounting system. Easy on and off when you need to remove it. The box seems stable and is only slightly effected by side winds when I'm riding solo, 2 up, you can't tell its behind you. When riding solo, you can tell its back there in strong winds, but it doesn't seem to be a big sail in the wind.
Installed on a R1200GSW

Nice alternative BMW
Looks good and serves the function. Only issue is that installing the "bike specific" mounting plate takes some finesse. Look for a blog where an owner explains how because the GIVI instructions are not very helpful.

Great case, wobbles a bit though
The case is really roomy and sits really nicely on my bike [pic above]. And the two helmet thing is true; it held so much of my stuff and still has room in it. There are only two things I don't like about it 1] is the fact that it wobbles a bit even when it's empty, I tightened all the screws and it still wobbles. Not to a degree of it breaking and falling. Maybe because it uses plastic mount. 2] I bought the one with the silver finish. It really scratches up quickly which is strange since this case is meant to take a beating.
All in all, great case for the space and sturdiness.
I recommend it.

Good looking big trunk
Holds two full face helmets (as long as I pop the SH-10 units off the sides). Stable and no buffeting or weaving without a passenger. Passenger likes the trunk WITHOUT the back rest as the back pad in her jacket is fine

Givi fan here...
Ok, I was thinking about the full aluminium cases... but for 2 helmets are super big. This givi its great, in all ways. Awesome quality, termination, design, etc.
The lock are super good, I mean, is not the old super easy lock-pick model. This is a good lock.
The only con, is that came with 2 copies, one with plastic cover on the back and the other plain. I dont know how much the save just for including unfinished key... but is not good for the image. I read all comments about the key loose attached to the handle, and they are right. One copy are attached to the handle, free of move, I had luck and the key doesn't scratched the case (and I didn't care, I will made my own scratches in couple of days...) but is a sign of careless from the brand.
