No complaints at all with the side-loading SHAD cases, which have nice internal floors and latches that you may leave unlocked for quick access to the internals. (The BMW bags allow this too.) And the extra capacity, 36 liters each versus the BMW cases’ 31, is welcome. Also like the BMW setup, the SHAD aftermarket cases use a small plastic strap to keep the lids from opening completely on the bike. If you’re not extremely careful to keep this strap from getting between the inner and outer shells when you close them, you’ll distort the strap. Then the strap will only want to go between the shells, keeping the bag from closing smoothly. It’s not the end of the world, but one each of the SH36s and BMW-branded bags have had the strap mutilated so that I have to make an effort to be sure they’re clear every time I close that particular case.
