Shad SH50 Topcase

While the Kawasaki Concours 14 has an ample luggage rack perfect for a soft tail pack, additional waterproof storage is never a bad idea. With several two-up trips looming, we called our friends at Shad, who quickly provided a solution. The SH50 topcase was a perfect color match to our Concours 14. The mounting kit base plate (sold separately) was easy to install, requiring only basic tools. Once affixed, the fit was tight and secure. Even after several thousand miles and some admittedly heavy loads, the case remained firmly in place. At 50 liters, the topcase easily swallows two full-face helmets. With that much capacity under lock and key, an extra couple of days on the road is no problem at all. Opening and closing the Shad is a breeze and removal of the case from the mounting plate is also a simple, one-button affair. The SH50 looks great, works flawlessly, and doesn’t require an engineering degree to install. What more could you ask for?
