Here's Somethign for the Rest of you Sport Tourers, Hard Luggage that's Water Proof and it's color matched to almost any color! It's made by a company called Givi. It's expensive stuff, but it's top quality
Givi's importer is located in Charlotte, NC. I understand (from the COG listserver) they have a nice showroom, are friendly folks, will mount for you while you check out the showroom (better verify first). They used to have good prices when they were looking for folks to supply, but I don't know 'bout now (although I hear their prices ain't bad). Had a friend in Winston Salem NC who bought a pristine used VFR on impulse (great deal from dealer), rode down to Charlotte the next day, and got 2 side bags/1 top bag mounted the next day. If I'm not mistaken, he got all three bags (installed) for around $600? 'Course, this was a few years back.
Anywho, here's the info:
805 Pressley Rd.
Charlotte, NC. 28217
Convenient to I-77 and Billy Graham Parkway-easy to find and easy to get back onto I-77. They also have a display area of mounted and unmounted bags for comparison. If you're in the area, stop and let Craig and the boys take care of you.
