    David,

    Could'nt help but notice your top box has a backrest built in. Is it a Givi box and where did you get it?

    All the Givis I've seen do not have backrests.

    You're right, it is a Givi box with back rest specifically for the happy go lucky girlfriend singer.

    I got mine from our Singapore parts supplier

    [email [email protected]][email protected][/email]

    AND
    There is also a Malaysian regional office / manufacturer / distributor with website
    GIVI ASIA SDN BHD
    NO 256 JALAN IPOH BATU 2, 51200 KUALA LUMPUR.
    tel. 603 4045 1800 (Hunting)

    Hanging out with the long necks at Nai Soi, late 1980s.

    294034=17520-GTR-LongNecks-MHS2-late80sB.

    294034=17521-GTR-LongNecks-MHS-late80sB.

    easy going days, just rock up, shoot the breeze & take a few pics.
