Anybody bought a Ryde top box?  They look like Givi and even fit on a Givi plate.If so, what was it like?

The size I want, 32 litres, is £32 cheaper even than used Givi boxes on ebay. As usual, on a budget.

I know - they are only a plastic box after all - why they are £100 from Givi I don't know.  Probably because they can sell them for that.
I may as well give it a go for that.  32L or the slightly bigger one? It is handy to stash your jacket and helmet at times.

I've got a 32 L Givi box I paid about £40.00 for on eBay. Takes a helmet and gloves easily. The fittings to hold the "Givi" plate to your rear rack may not fit right so be prepared to rig something up yourself. I made up a plate out of scrap ali to go under the rack to bolt the Givi plate down onto.

It'll be interesting to see how they compare to the real thing !  In recent years I have bought  small Givi boxes from Italian websites such as this  https://www.carpimoto.it/en-IE/Bags-Luggage/Top-Side-Cases/Page_1
 for around 40 euro .  Sometimes they have special offers at year end  and the last time I doubled up an order with a friend with no increase in carriage.
