Son has the big 49 liter BMW case on his GT. Just got mine but need a top case. Are there aftermarket alternatives for a hard case???

You can use the Givi E193 adapter (for the R1200RT) on the new GT and then mount any of Givi's Monokey-design top cases. I use the 46L Givi that I previously used on my 2003 K12GT.

(By the way, Givi didn't have an "approved" fitment for the new GT when I installed mine.)

On edit - I just noticed you posted this question in both the "new" and "old" GT forums. My comments apply to the "new" 2006-2007 GTs.

Yes !

I also put the GIVI on my GT. Purchased base mount for R1200RT and it adapted to the GT tail rack OK...

What's the cost difference between going with the Givi and the BMW? I'm assuming that with the Givi you get the LED as well? And the only other difference would be the name badge.
