Givi Monokey Trekker Side Case Set
Expensive but worth it
I had a hard time spending this kind of money on bags, but they are worth it. The first time you roll into a hotel late at night, all you have to do is pop the bags off and carry them away like suit cases. You get to watch your buddies unpack their bags and repack in the morning.

Love these cases!
I tried to go with cheaper cases, but cheaper cases just don't compare. These cases are a bit on the heavy side, but seem extremely well made. They attach rock solid and ate removed easily. Also love that they came with a third lock so my topcase would be keyed the same.

Looking forward to a big trip!
Still getting accustomed to the various locks and openings on these cases, they are quite stiff and hard to open. Hopefully will loosen up with use. Took the cases on a weekend trip and art workshop, everything fitted in and arrived in one piece...more travel to come before I can say more. They are quite heavy, so I will will be building up some muscles. They look great by the way! My Tiger looks the part.

Look great on the bike
I installed the Trekkers on my '11 Vstrom, using the SW-Motech racks. The quality is very 'Italian', and they look great. We'll see how they hold up in the long term, but so far I'm very pleased. On problem was I forgot which bag I had setup for side open vs. top open and let go of the lid. Gravity did it's thing and I snapped one of the rubber strap-retainers that stop the lid at about 90+ degrees. There's two, and only one snapped. Guess I'll pick up some spares.

The cases are amazing. I chose the 33 liter cases for the sides. I've already been on a few trips, fits everything I need, I do pack only the necessary, but took all of my stuff plus my gf's stuff on both of these.
Have been on heavy rain for more than an hour, happy to say the inside absolutely dry, not even a hint of moisture.
The cases mount very easily on the tubular accesories (must buy bike specific).
Only thing I don't like is that you must have the key inserted to close the case (you open with the key, but you can't remove it until you close it again) It's not a big of a deal, but that's the only con so far.

Looks good, works Great
Just completed a 15 day, 4600 mile trip through the Rockies on my VStrom. These panniers easily held all my gear and kept it dry. Easy to remove from the bike which worked really well for camping or packing into a hotel room.
