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.

    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. Heather says:

    Is this a trunk for your motorcycle?

  3. Donna says:

    Does that eliminate the possibility of a passenger?

  4. Don says:

    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.

    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. Don says:

    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. Jocelyn says:

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

  8. Richard says:

    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.

  9. Jocelyn says:

    and how was the visit?

  10. Don says:

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

  11. Donna says:

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

  12. Don says:

    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. Don says:

    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. Don says:

    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. Donna says:

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

  16. Jocelyn says:

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

  17. Donna says:

    It’s not the theme, Joc.
