Question for Shad and Givi side case owners

Recommended Posts

I sold my FJ OEM side cases because my heels bumped into them unless I was riding flat footed on the pegs, and removed the passenger pegs for the same reason.  I've looked at the Shad and Givi side case mounts and they seem to move the bags backwards and higher on the bike.  Can anyone tell me if they're out of the way enough to not  interfere with my boot heels?

I have the Shad 36 cases and the mount bar connects the the passenger peg mount just like the factory mount.  If your heels hit the passenger pegs then nothing will change but if your heels are only hitting the bags themselves then you might be fine.  I ride mostly with the balls of my feet on the pegs and my heels dont touch the bags.

I too have the Shad 36's, and despite wearing size 12 boots i don't think my heel has ever come into contact with the cases. Now have 12K on the bike, and still loving it.

Thanks guys.  My I ask if you're bothered by the passenger pegs making contact with the inside heels of your boots?

I have the FJ09 and at times, yes, my heels hit the passenger pegs (size 12 boots - EUR 47).  On the GT, the passenger pegs are even lower, so I could imagine that it could get quite annoying.
