My new R1200RT, Shad SH48 or SH50?

Hi everyone!!!

I am new member, I was looking up all the comments posted, however I am interested in getting a new top case for my R1200RT. I want to add an accessory for my girlfriend as she is riding with me this spring/summer, so she can feel comfortable as well, I was looking into the SHAD products and they look awesome, and it seems it fits my needs, but I am not sure if I can get the SH48 or SH50, along with the accessories shown, in addition, I have contacted them and they have an offer going on $30 OFF on their products for the R1200RT, discount code (R1200RT30)

Which one do you recommend me?

I just got my SH 50 delivered this week and haven't had a chance to put it on the bike yet. It is a very good quality top box for sure. I ordered mine directly from Shad in Miami and got it 2 days later...I live in Florida, so that is a plus.

I had a 2012 RT and purchased a used Chad top case on ebay for it. I liked the case fine, but if I were to do it again I would get the bigger case I think. Actually, I have also used Givi cases, and I really think the Givi case is a better case--but I am not sure what the price difference is on the Givi vs the Chad. My only real complaint with the Chad had nothing to do with the case itself. When I purchased the case, the person who sold it only had one key for it--something I did know about before I purchased it. I didn't think it would be big deal--I would just get a key blank and have one made. That did not happen. I learned you cannot buy blanks for the lock. I tried at a local lock store, and then told me they could not get the blanks. I even contacted Chad--and they do not sell key blanks. They will sell you a whole new key lock mechanism at a much inflated price--but not a key blank.
