I agree that it looks great without the cases on. I took off the cases early last week at the dealer while the bike was being serviced. They don't like them on the bike while in their shop as the bike then takes up a lot of room and they don't want the cases scratched.
I put the cases in my car and have not mounted them yet, until I go on a longer ride from home.
The bike rides a little faster and it is easier to get on and off the centerstand, probably because of the weight issue.
