I bought the adapter plate for the RT and put it on my GT, then just transferred my old 42L Givi from my Connie to me GT. I can use it on either bike now.
I've had this case for about 8 yrs (maybe more) and it's held up well physically. Cosmetically, it's faded over time. It still locks down securely to the plate and locks with no issues.
I think the Givi's are a little more aerodynamic than the stock BMW 52L box. I really can't tell any difference with it off or on.
The onky thing I don't really like is how the adapter mounts to the BMW rack. I think that could be a lot cleaner looking.
EDIT: Not really a good shot, but I've added a pic of my '06 with the Givi.
