Here is a nice but fairly simple setup I found on a Chinese forum.


Metal rack and side supports

Soft side bags

Topbox

This picture gives you an idea of just much storage one can get with boxes!

I have GIVI E21 side boxes & a small GIVI topcase to be mounted...

The last two pics are very similar to what I'm planning for my GW250. I have had a pair of GIVI E21 side boxes for many months prior to purchasing my GW250. I plan to mount them on it along with the small GIVI topcase I've had on my Piaggio BV 250 for the last few years. I also have a pair of used GIVI wingracks bought on Ebay that I plan to use in mounting the boxes in some way... either using the whole wingrack or maybe just robbing them of the three-point mounting/connector hardware to be added to another rack. So far I've just been using a backpack or strapped laptop bag=
*The GW250 is an amazing motorcycle and I'm very happy to finally have it in my garage, BUT- I sure do miss the convenience of my old scooter! -Tons of space for books, computer, groceries, etc... AND mindless twist&GO riding with no constant gear changing on daily short trips to store & office.
So... the sooner I get the mounting racks figured out & attach my boxes, the happier I'll be with the GW250!
*I also plan to add a windscreen. I haven't seen anything yet that I like though. Hopefully in 2014 more GW250 specific options will be produced.

Now that is what I call storage.

Do you know the exact capacity of the saddle boxes and top box?
No matter what it is, it's A LOT and should be good enough for most

not a fan of top boxes but pans are always handy. How wide are the pans, you think it will affect the ability to filter?

Having just fitted a Givi luggage rack to my gw250 all I can say is avoid the givi rack like the plague. Aside from having to drill a 22mm hole in the tail section above the rear light to match up with a bolt hole located in the frame of the bike, it now means that the only way to remove the "U" shaped tail section that goes from the rear light to the lower rear corners of the petrol tank on both sides (to be able to access the wiring and relays hidden behind it) is to dismantle and then remove the rack first.
Like all givi racks it's strong and well made, but having to remove the rack to service the bike is a pain in the ass

I'm guessing that most of you have already seen this site (from China I assume):

GW250Inazuma.com, The GW250 & GSR250 Inazuma Specialty Shop

It has the most options for the GW250 that I've found online so far...
