This is the mount that we fabed up. It's going on my fathers TW200.

All mounted up. We made a rubber gasket for the inside of the lid to keep everything dry.

Do you have to have another rider ahead of you with a "Wide Load" sign?

Damn that thing's wide.

Obviously functional though... don't be offended by the comments. I get teased regularly for the stock graphics and purple frame of the KLX.
Ever get lost? You know, that good kind of lost - come to a dirt road intersection and you have no idea where you are or which way to turn? I like when that happens!
