    It took me two years to decide on side boxes. I finally went with the Dolomitis from Givi. Great quality and they fit the bike well. They pack 36 liters per side. The quality seems to be typical High-quality Givi. I like them and they were on sale at 20% off.

    I like those, i have the Trekker 33s which i had for 6 years and served me very well. That said, if buying now id go for Dolomitis. Top opening is a big bonus.

    Several questions ...

    Why black vs. silver?  Just like the looks?  Seems the silver ones are cheaper.   :002:

    Was the rack install easy?  No drilling required? No pulling all sorts of body work off/on?  Is it like a 1 hr job?

    When you do the quick release to remove racks, it seems the tail piece (that links the two sides together) stays in place?  Can't tell if that is bolted to the rear fender by the license plate or not? 

    They look great!

    The racks for the Dolomiti are essentially the same as the MonoKey Trekker I have (part that locks the box on is different).

    When you first install the kit there are two little brackets that fit to the pillion peg hangers, These stay on the bike and are the only part that does. The Bar at the back that links the two sides, does excatly that, it comes off with the pannier mounts.

    DaveinNC, Youve probably worked this out but the two small brackets that clamp into the tail unit with the triangular key are prone to falling off if you dont put a bolt (or i have seen a padlock)through the hole. Couple of forum members fell foul of this.   Let me know if you dont know what im waffling on about and ill take some picks of mine.
