Talking Thinking outside the box...Post your Farkels!

Post a picture of your mod...Not a store bought item - something you decided to use ....

This is a top case....I used a Zero case - added some stainless drawer pulls for tie down handles. Mounted using "Best Rest" tail bracket.

On a Dakar


On a GS

I've got many. Here's my topbox mount and rack.



Having an Adventurer I don't have the 2 piece seat and wanting to have the topbox over the rear seat I had to do it another way. The rack is attached to the stock GSA rack. The mount straddles the rear of the seat also attaching to the stock GSA rack on each side.



For a rock solid mount and eliminate flex I added a .090 thick doubler with bends that match the bottom of the topbox.

I laughed when I saw this - I've got one of those SKB boxes, but my compressors are in it so I won't be mounting it to my bike. I have to wonder, though, what did you do with the hole in the back (now bottom)?

RoyB, I poked around your photo site and there is some really great stuff in there! I especially like your clean work and thorough explanation regarding the custom windshield bending!

great idea, if you can't leave it at home! For cheap PV panels, do a search on Ebay for Volkswagon PV, they are used to keep car batterys maintained during transport on ships!

IIRC RoyB has a website with a bunch of his home-brewed concoctions photo-documented in detail . . . . . .

Thanks RoyB

I really like these cases HighTechCoonass. They look great !
I saw some on the web for around $ 70 each.
I was wondering how tough are they (Compare the Pelican cases) ?
Are they water proof ?
Can you tell us more ? I'd like to know more about them. Thanks in advance !

My home-made skidplate:


Recently completed storage tube that attaches to the SW-Motech quick-release side rack mounts:



El cheapo Wal-Mart foglights adapted to the bike:


My mini-dash (look lower right) made of the corner of the plastic casing from an old broken multi-meter I was tossing:


And finally, though a little off topic, a stand I made for the Zumo so I could use it in the car:


Nothing makes me happier than when I can use some of the crap I've pack-ratted for years to make a useful item. Validates both my cheap-ass nature and the pack-ratting!
