Thought I'd write a review since it's labor day and I don't have anything better to do
I don't leave reviews often unless I think it's an utterly terrible product that I should warn people about, or a product that has stood out above all else. In this case (hah case!), this is a positive review for the GIVI case for the Street Triple.
The case is very well made and very well through out, with one exception (i'll get to that later). The case is very sturdy and made of, what feels to be, high quality components. The locking mechanism is very simple to use. Turn the key, hit a button and open the lid. You can do everything with your gloves on. The mono-key system is very versatile. The design of the mono key system allows you to insert the key, press of a button and wa-lah. The case comes out smoothly, and off to your hotel room, camp site, store, etc - doesn't get simpler than that.
The interior space is supple to store a helmet and/or jacket with ease. The size of the case itself was described by my friends as "massive". Though, I do not feel that it hinders the way my bike handles, nor does it give me issues when I check my rear view. A HUGE plus of it is that my friend says, "With that case you have a presence of a car!", or in other words because the case is "huge" the visibility is much greater. Higher visibility = More safe = much much worth it.
Now the negative part I mentioned. When installed, the lower panel that the case mounts to blocks the rear stop light to a great amount. This can be circumvented by adding a GIVI LED set for the case is required. I've added leds that function as both a stop light and turn signal. This added 10x visibility at night and during the day. I HIGHLY recommend it. There's plenty setups out there if you do a search on youtube to get an idea.
Anyway, post any questions if you have 'em. I wrote this review in 10 min so I'm bound to miss something which I'll add later.
Hope I've helped someone that's interested in using the ST3 as a long distance bike. I've taken it on a 1k mile road trip with no issues.
