Market for a top bag

I'm looking at adding a top bag to my Sprint and wondered what recommendations there was for size and brand. I have briefly looked at Givi

I searched the forum and didn't see much, thanks

I have givi's on my Strom and there awesome. If your looking for a cheaper option there is a company that makes some knock off Givi mono key and they mount to the givi racks.

I'm trying to decide what size to get? The big one that holds two helmets sounds good but I ride twisters not freeway so I'm worried a large top case will effect my ride

Thanks

I rode my friend's GS with a Givi top box (the one that holds two helmets). It was pretty full and I didn't even notice it back there. I can't imagine it being any more noticeable on a sprint.

I think Max's top case is a Givi. He uses it on an SV. So he might be a better source to tell you if it has any effect on handling and the like.

I was just about to pull the trigger on the Givi bag and then I had a look at the mount and wasn't impressed. Ended up watching eBay until I found a decent deal on a OEM bag. I got 250 in it so far and its like new, only problem is wrong color infill but if I can't find one soon I will spend the
$75.00 to get the correct color.
