Another side case option
« on: January 30, 2016, 02:07:53 PM »

This isn't for everybody, but I had these SW-Motech Aero cases for my V-Strom's TraX luggage racks, simply because the TraX cases ruin mileage above 65mph, and put them on my Zero finally. I bought some adapter brackets from Twisted Throttle and had them grinded into shape for the Zero racks. Anyway, I think they look rather nice and carry a little more than the Givi cases. They do come with waterproof inner bags despite not being fully waterproof themselves.

My Givi case locks have become pretty funky to use after three years so I figured it was time to try these.

They do look more aerodynamic than others.

I notice you have a little extra deflector on the top of your commuter screen, how well does it work, does it improve or decrease your range?

It certainly increases comfort: I only have to lean slightly now to be out of the airstream. My range feels very slightly improved perhaps, but I'm mainly glad to be able to sit upright and get whatever range benefit the screen itself offers.
