I happen to have a Givi Wingrack II for sidecases available if you're interested.

I have the wingrack II on my 5th gen. Highly recommend it. It's built like a rock, and can take 3 big bags no issues.

I’ve got a full set of Kappa luggage.

My regret was buying the max size side panniers. They restricted filtering immensely. 
the narrower side panniers would have been far better. I still have the max size ones. 

The securing frames however were excellent.

They came as two systems - top box only or all three boxes.

Top-box system is still used.

I agree about the full size side panniers turning a svelte bike into a bit of a fat ass but on a long road trip it's worth the width. I only put the wing rack on for a long trip. Otherwise I use a top case only bracket or a back pack.

A riding buddy, who's wife is a farmer's daughter, so she ought to know, said my bike with the 41L Givi hardbags from behind looked like the north end of a south-bound cow. So HughJebolzak is right on!.

Here is my VFR, complete with a full set of Kappa luggage, we're on our way to Normandy in France, way back in 2003!!

Hi. hey, Sorry, I missed this earlier. I think I'm looking for a top case now.  Actually the entire project is on hold until I see what happens in the next month or two.

I'm actually in the market for one if you still have it.
