Bueno58 . Thank you for posting the pictures . How much room is there in the trunk ? Will a full face modular helmet fit with room left for a jacket or a tank bag ?
 I find myself not liking the top case aesthetics on any bike , however I cannot deny the practical application for in city use. I find that 80% of my need for luggage necessitates being able to lock stuff away when parked more so than actually carrying things. Nothing beats a top case for that. However I think the 40-47 liter sizes might be more to my needs. BTW I found a fantastic place to purchase cases etc from italy. Shipped prices are still 70 % of what they are locally sourced in the US.
Fro example : a Kappa 46 liter (about the same thing as GIVI since they are both made at the same factory by the same people) total price $ 138.00 shipped to the US.

And of course much more secure, 100% waterproof and unbreakable but not as pretty plan B  $182.00 :

I didn't want anything bigger than the box I bought, which was $161 at Revzilla with free shipping.  I can fit in a full face helmet and textile jacket in it along with a few more items as well.  The box is easy to remove and carry and the opening and closing mechanism works well.  My only (minor) dig is that the key must be used to lock the case.  It would be nice if you could open it with the key, remove the key and then lock it without having to insert the key again.

Think they do that so you don't lock your key in the box.

Ordered the luggage rack on Wednesday about 2:00 PM from Thailand, received at my door in the US on Friday 1:00 PM - that's crazy fast (FREE !) shipping !  :152:
Undamaged and in good shape.
The rack is plenty strong. Let me know if there's any questions you guys have that are not answered by  the attached pictures.   :821:

This guy deserves another plug because of the almost instant responses to my e-mails, fantastic service !
PS (Ignore the plastic grommet under the hand rail. It was used as a bumper for the tool tubes before the rack was installed. It is no longer needed/installed.)

I must add ... the rack makes for a much much cleaner install for the tool tubes. :001:

That's the type installation I want, thank you for the photos. Would slight oversizing bolt holes negate zip ties? Thanks, T
