On alternate weekend I travel to a city 350 km away. I thinking of getting sidecase and sport touring windshield. Pics below. What you guys opinion? The sidecase look slim and not too wide.

Those look like pretty good options for the type of travel you are talking about. Unfortunately there aren't a lot of reviews or videos on the accessories for this bike yet so it's tough saying what each has for pros and cons, but from first looks they look like they would work out for your needs. Personally I am looking at the MRA "NRN" windshield. Just have to wait until the Canadian importer orders some in.

MRA "NRN" look good too and wider so better wind protection.

Mine a bit slimmer. To me the look is better than stock. Can i tuck in behind the windshield? yes.

If i sit upright i can feel slight reduction in wind pressure at chest area. slight buffeting at neck area and clean air at helmet.

This weekend will travel 700 km round trip. I usually cruise at 140-150 km/h. and the occasional burst of speed to 170 km/h. Will know better after the trip.

Not bad. I see you has the 3P mounting system. Easy to unmount and mount it.

I can't see your rear turn signals. Is it still there?

Can carry a pillion rider with the side case mounted?

yes the 3P mounting is very convenient.

Rear turn signals are stock, no need to have them changed albeit slightly inside. I did a walk around and the signals are still quite visible by motorist from the rear.

No issue to carry pillion with the side case mounted. Will post pics of the rear in a bit.

Installed the SH23 (& Puig windscreen), good size and build though lane splitting is harder than usual due to the increase width.
I know this is an old post but I am considering Shad side cases... would these still fit with a fender eliminator and stock turn signals? I know they'd be in between the side cases and only visible from the rear but I'm worried that the turn signals are too long.
