One of the things I really wanted on my new Silverwing was one of those Givi trunk with the lights. I was reading on another forum that it does change the center of gravity which is already sort of high on those. Now I'm concerned pale Would I be better off with the saddle bags to keep the center of gravity low for me??? I'm short and I have already had them cut the seat down for me. I sure don't want to make the bike more top heavy.....
What's your opinion??

Coralee,

This is just my opinion & experience. I'm about 5'3" with an inseam of 30" to 31". No seat modification. I have the, E46 on my S'Wing. I know it's there, even when it's empty, but have had no problems. But before I purchased it, I would use a fully loaded duffel bag strapped to the seat. To me, no matter what you get you're going to change the balance of the bike, be it high or low. You'll know it's there, you just have to adjust to it.
If you're still not flat footing your scoot you may want to try & find a pair of boots with a thicker sole. Really...........it's not that bad having one, you will get use to it & if you were to use saddle bags too, it may help out with balancing it out and give you even more room for goodies when you take a trip. Hope this helps.

Coralee,

You many want to look into this:

http://cruiserbag.com/tcb.htm

If you don't ride 2 up when touring than this may be what you want. You also get the backrest too. I have even thought of getting this and removing my top case. I don't feel the top case but I'm also 6' and 210 lbs.

Leroy Beal has done many mods to his SWing and thinks this is the most comfortable backrest he has used. They also come in different sizes.

Wow really interesting with that backrest build in. I don't ride with anyone on the back so that's a good idea to use it as storage. I always pack to much...so I will need lots of space. :D
I have pretty high boots but thought about having a little added to them. Much more and I will look like I'm on stilts!!! bounce I'm about 5'2".

Thanks for that information Jeff. That cruiser bag looks like a great idea. I may have to add it to my ever-growing list of "must-have" accessories...

I really think it is important to remember that an empty or full GIVI case can be removed when you don't need it. Riding around with the case on the bike when it is not needed has a negative effect on mileage.
