Looks great, out of interest why did you go for the motech racks rather than the kappa/givi ones?

I bought the bike used and it came with a motech rear rack so I needed compatible side carriers. I also really liked the design and features of the motech side carrier, although I had to wait 4 months for delivery because it's a newly released product.

Also bought a 70L waterproof duffel bag that lays across the side cases so I've got plenty of storage for long distance adventures.

Looks good.  The side cases look bigger than 22L, to my eye.

If you have a chance, it would be helpful to see some more photos of the cases from different angles, including from the rear.  Also, Iím curious what the racks themselves look like without cases mounted.

Thanks.   :762:

I chose the Kappa side cases because they are the only side cases that I'm aware of that are top loading. Perfect for grocery shopping.

Givi is a sister company of Kappa with almost identical but more expensive clones of the side and top cases. I did not want to pay for branding.

Will post more pictures when I get some free time.

I like the idea of top loading cases as well, for same reason (groceries.)  Fyi, Coyote also offers top loading cases (Pelican).  Iíve been considering them but will have to study your cases too.
