Re: My new R1200RT, Shad SH48 or SH50?
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.
