My Vstrom/box combo looks a lot like yours, but both would probably fit under the bike's back end.

Settle down, I'm not the one who said the KLR was the wrong bike. I miss mine sometimes.

Here's my Givi E45N on the back of my T-Dub. I can fit my boots (14"), pants, jacket, and gloves in there with room for a sandwich. Or I can fit my helmet in there with room for beer.

Maybe the rider is hoping it will fall off to save the embarrassment of arriving with that POS attached. Where's the Samsonite gorilla when you need him?

THIS is why all the top boxes. And I dont even notice and change in handling or anything else on mine. I find myself checking my mirrors to make sure I attached it right and it didn't fall off!

Just bought the Bestem 996 box for my DL650. That HAS to be one of the best values in motorcycling!

I've always liked the convenience of having a top box, obviously something many of us agree on. I also wanted a secure place to put my Shoei Neotec helmet. I've only had cheap helmets up until now, so i'd just hang em' over a mirror when I parked the bike. Not happening with a $500+ helmet. Won't fit in my sidecases (20mm ammo cans), so had to get a top box.

I'm without a top box and I'm considering an EMGO. Would it clash with my GIVI side cases? Also, would it make my ass look too big? ;)
