It's a Givi V46 on a Five Stars rack. It helps that I got the silver box that kind of matches the silver stripes on the bike. Also, the rack mounts nice and close to the tail section. And the rack has built in mounts for Givi boxes. Some racks perch a top box up really high.

I love this topbox. It is very useful. Helmet, gloves, bringing a lot of stuff home from a quick trip to the store.

After viewing this thread, I'm reasonably sure mine is a modest example
I wish I had a way to lock it to the bike, but its on and off in 5 seconds.

Wow, I never knew there were so many KLR riders, who are not on KLRs.

My daughter probably would take some convincing to ride with me without the top box.

Well, not TOO bad......

Russian judge gives you a 7 out of 10.

It is less offensive because of the hard side bags- tends to blend a bit.....but it wasn't a win-win.

Let's hear from the full committee

Army surplus aluminum box, mounted on aluminum plate that's been welded between hand hold brackets on each side. Mounted with quick release wingnuts, for easy removal. Inside, front and rear tube, tool kit with tire irons, air-compressor, chain-lube, filter cleaner and oil, quart of motor oil, and....right now, front and rear brake-pads (mine are just about gone, but I won't pull'em off until I have too). Oh, and It's all powder-coated black.

My "top box"

It's an old metal shop project that I bolted on. I put a bead of rtv on the lid to seal it. Velcro onewrap to keep it closed. I had it mounted on the side behind the plastic, but it was a mpita to get anything out of it.
