Wicked Just couldn't ever work ....

No one could be satisfied using those heavy, inelegant ammo cans for luggage.






These have served pretty well for my winter (Keys) transportation. Didn't bother taking off the stiffening ribs, just used some washers to clear and attach to SW Motech frames. They come off frame and all with 3 D-zus fasteners per side. I do have to remember to pack the heavy (beverages) groceries into the left box first and unload it last so that the bike doesn't fall over! Still thinking about version 2.0, if I were to line the box with rigid styrofoam (insulation) and install a petcock (drain) in the bottom I think it would hold at least 8 dozen shrimp. Then I wouldn't need to start the truck until it was time to tow the camper back north!
