I wish I had seen a Shad case in person before buying it.  It's OK.  I paid $245.  I guess that's the going rate for "name brand" cases but it doesn't look very well built.
I like the fact that I have the extra room but if I had to do it over I'd look at other brands or even a used cases.

I just received and installed the Shad case and mounting rails from Murphs. I am quite happy with everything. The quality of the rails (Murphs) is fantastic. The actual top case is good but not super heavy duty. For the price and capacity i am satisfied.

Proliant, what side cases do you have on your bike? They look very nice.

Opening up this thread again with one question. Do the rails from Murph fit any of the Shad 26L and 33L mounting plates? I'm not interested in the 46L, too big for my liking.

Thanks

They probably do.  They fit the bike perfectly, then if needed you could easily add additional holes on the top side.  They are just bent and painted metal.  I recommend them if you don't want to create something from scratch like I did.  Target cutting black board with scrap trailer awning rails and SS hardware.  Still cost at least $20 plus the time to do it.
