If you're packing your bike for touring, you'll be taking two suitcases anyway, so you might as well plan on putting some bike parts in the second suitcase.
But it's even more important to watch weight - most airlines charge more if a bag weighs more than 50 lbs, and they *will* weigh the bags. And some of the hardshell cases are pretty heavy on their own - the S&S hardshell case weighs 17 lbs, for example.
