Yes. In the part they call Canada. Be sure to carry a concealed weapon when you go up there to pick one up. They like that.

Thanks Dakez, should I pack a pistol or a knife? I never quite know what to bring to Canada, It's almost as bad as going to New Jersey.

Yo, DAKEZ-

Thought you'd appreciate hearing I just finished bolting a Givi plate to the new FJR...

I sort of like my top box. Original owner called it the shoe. Nice to lock up stuff on errands and such, but off road on my poor man's KLR I will not take it. I had my laptop, paper stuff and food in mine in my fly and ride.




Gonna make a dog carrier for the KLR, cut out the top of a pet carrier where the handle is so she can see. My Aussie will go exploring with me soon.

It beats strapping on a backpack.

HAH- because it's too small to be a boot.

Depends on the backpack I guess. Look into a Kriega.


Still waiting Mr. Woodward

Slow day at work?

Left to right: At the very left edge is the TOPBOX on my DRZ400SM;
the back part of my Tiger 800XC and it's TOPBOX;
behind that you can see the yellow handguard and TOPBOX of the KLR650 that BoyChild rides;
dead center is the new hotness 2013 FJR1300 and AWACS-sized TOPBOX;
to the right of that is Spouse Unit's Speed Four and it's TOPBOX;
and in the bottom right corner is my Aprilia Falco which doesn't currently have a TOPBOX on it- but there is a mounting plate for a TOPBOX under that tarp.


Only bike that doesn't have one, or means of carrying one- and believe me, I thought long and hard on how to do it- is the VTR250 behind me.
