    The givi bags have a weight limit as well. The on thing i miss about my givi bags was the keyless side entry that allows you to get in them with out opening the whole case.

    Just get a trailer.

    That way you can haul the whole liquor cabinet with you. You could even make a compartment for iced coolers when the ride is done.

    Have you considered a trailer? Just think, a Uni-Go, well stocked with the contents iced down, all ready for when you stop.

    i think i want to hear what all youre packing too.

    ok, so only four 750ml bottles fit, but most places have liquor. and if i was going someplace that needed all that liquor i'd ship it. yeah yeah there is probably some law. whatever, take it to the pack-N-ship store. tell em its medicine, for your soul.

    what else do you have in there? i recently did a multiday trip, and i realized that the only drawback to wearing the same clothes every day is that in the photos, it looks like a one day trip. any nasty odor i develop was easily quenched with smoke from the fire and the smell of alcohol oozing from my pores. clothes weren't going to held.

    also, if youre a clotheshound, can you consider the clothes fluffy, and just pile them up behind you? that wont have a big effect on the CG of the bike?

    maybe if you were more specific, and shared your packing list with all of us, it would help with suggestions.

    I have now got the packing down to where it fits no problems. I just still have the problem of when I am commuting of getting the helmet to fit in a case.

    My full face helmet fits in my BMW top case. And now with the large lids it fits in there as well. I can carry my lap top laying it down in my case and have room for other items in there. In my givi the lap top case had to sit upright.
