Cylon becomes a hard case

I’ve got a long write-up forthcoming on installing these bad boys, but I received my GIVI V46 and E21 hard cases today.

The hard cases afford me a few minor luxuries my soft bags did not:

  • they lock, to keep casual crimes of opportunity from happening. I was always nervous about someone unzipping my soft bags and rummaging through them.
  • they hold more. The topcase alone has 46L of capacity and can eat two helmets side by side.
  • they are waterproof. While my softcases had rain covers, it will be nice to not have to worry about rushing out in the middle of an event to put them on. I was nervous about the rain covers blowing off at speed anyway.
