Here's my top case. It looks more weathered now after riding in pouring rain and some dusty roads. My daughter who rides with me likes stickers so I let her put them on my cases. There is a clear understanding of no unicorns and glitter. Of course she isn't a girly girl so I doubt that would happen.

I don't have a pic of mine right now. I have a HT top box and panniers, the top box goes on once it gets cold. I use it mainly to store my 1st Gear thermal suit and.....whatever.

It probably is ugly; then again, if I were some metrosexual chick-with-a-penis that was so caught up in my looks, fashion, and image, I would probably have a different bike than a rhino-lined Vstrom. I would be laughed at taking my bike to a season premier of Sex in the City party. Maybe I should check with Queer Eye for the Straight Guy before buying farkles for my adv bike.

I guess if I were that worried about looking cool, I would have bought a Hardly.

You worry too much about not looking cool...

I bought this OEM BRG top case for my '05 Tiger from an inmate here, just haven't been home yet to install it....wife was nice enough to snap a pic, and send it to me here in Saudi though...



Be glad to get it mounted, packed, and the Tiger headed back to the hills again...
