I got my Givi and installed it today. I think it looks pretty good.

It sure has lots of room in it.

Here’s some more pictures.


  1. I was going to ask if you got the 46 or 52 but the picture clearly show the 46. It is exactly the same as the one I have except for the color. I think you will enjoy it.

  2. Is this a trunk for your motorcycle?

  3. Does that eliminate the possibility of a passenger?

  4. I added a few more pictures to maybe answer some questions.

    Heather: Yes, it is a trunk for my motorcycle.

    Donna: As you can see from the added pictures it doesn’t eliminate a passenger. It actually makes a backrest for the passenger.

  5. My reaction reading this:

    What the heck’s a “Givi”?
    Oh, I see. It’s that thing on his motorcycle.
    What’s it for?
    Oh, I see. You put stuff in it.
    Does it lock?
    Oh, I see the keys hanging from it in the second picture.

    Now a couple of unanswered questions:
    What’s the red square thing inside the lid?
    Does it have tail lights, or are those just reflectors?

  6. The red square thing? I don’t know. It doesn’t seem to serve a purpose to me but maybe Richard can shed some light on that question.

    Mine is reflectors only but you can get a light kit for it and turn those into stoplights.

  7. I think it might be the bottom of a top compartment.

  8. The red square is just a piece of plastic that mounts inside the top of the case. I think it will cover the attachment hardware if you purchase an optional top mounted rack.

    I did purchase the optional stop light kit for mine, but I did not recommend it to Don. It does not provide much light and I do not feel it is worth the cost or the hassle of installing it.

    That in no way detracts from the case itself. It is very high quality and I like mine very much.

  10. We all had a great time. See my Gallery for pictures. I’ll make a post later, probably tomorrow.

  11. I noticed all of our photo widgets have quit working. What’s up with that?

    Comment by Donna — Thursday November 1, 2007 @ 5:49 pm

  12. They quit working after the update to the php and mysql programs. I’m not sure which one is causing the problem but maybe Daryl and I can figure it out.

  13. It seems you can have one photo but not more due to some PHP error happening. Since you only need one you should be ok. Here’s what I have in my PHP widget. You should put something similar.

    < ?php include('../gallery/block-random.php'); ?>

  14. Well I fixed mine and Heather’s but Joce’s doesn’t work still. She can’t even have one photo. It’s probably related to the theme.

  15. That’s exactly what I had before, and it doesn’t work on mine.

  16. I can change my theme. I’ll go theme shoppin later

    Comment by Jocelyn — Friday November 2, 2007 @ 4:57 am

  17. It’s not the theme, Joc.
