    There was recently discussion on the CB1000R forum about the new GSX-S1000, which a couple guys have moved over to. I'd consider it, but it's gotta be able to run luggage, for me. And in my mind, the nicest set-up these days is the new Shad 3P system: sweet looking side cases (SH36):



    and a very simple rack system:



    They don't make the system for the GSX-S, and they don't plan to ( I asked...), but with a bit of jiggery-pokery and welding, anything is possible - that's how I got Givi luggage on my CB, after all...
    i've actually been looking at that system. I can easily make/modify the mounts. However my exhaust turns up so quickly that it's going to hit the cases.

    what about designing the rack/mounts so that the cases sit at more of an angle or above the exhaust? or maybe this is an excuse for a new exhaust system too?

    perhaps you should consider this system?

    but more seriously, I don't find it difficult to tour for 3 or 4 days with just a top-box and tankbag. but I prefer ( a) a hard case. and ( b) mounting at the rear seat, not way out back on a separate rack. far better balance on the bike...

    I disagree whole heartedly. The weight further back makes zero difference in the handling of the bike, and mounting a case on the rear seat just means endless kick-throughs all day long, which gets tiring. Now, Don is Mr. fit, so he probably high kicks over his top box, not this old fellow.LOL

    lol - yeah watching you trying to get on a bike at times has proven to be quite humourous.

    Actually, while I used to be able to kick a door-frame ( the top, not the side...) back when I was youth, those days are long gone! However, a kick, a little help / support from my hand, and a hop, and I'm good to go. Age and cunning, as always...

    I used to be able to as well. Just stopped after getting tired of landing on my head.
