I haven't seen any alternative uses of top boxes, so here's mine from this afternoon:

I always thought top boxes were ugly, especially without side cases. But, once I got one, I couldn't live easily without one.

PS I still think they are ugly!

There's one on the windscreen and another on the back, just none visible in that pic.

The front wheel is in the back of the shop getting an Anakee 3 mounted. The rear wheel went as soon as the front was put back on. Mad props to Chaparral, who didn't even bat an eye when I said "OK, lemme go grab the front wheel first"

Okay, my bad. I stand corrected. I should have said "No visible advrider decal" in the photo.

Ride on!!!

Because just about every TB you see is ugly...........

The factory one on the Buell looks like an afterthought. The side cases look like they belong buuuuttttt the top box not so much. But....as far as commuting it's ugly is forgotten, because it is awesome to not have to lug helmet through security.

Thanks but I know you are saying that just because of the Harley police seat.

I set this box on my Strom and posted the photo on the Stormtrooper site a few years ago as a joke. You would not believe how many guys told me how stupid I was for having such a large top box. I played dumb the whole time. I said the only drawback was that I couldn't open my side cases

Got the good ole WTF from Mrs. Hooli when i got home. Almost let it slip out of my mouth that it weighed less than her.........which would of been all bad. And I obviously did not say this because I am still alive today to share this story.

Great story. I think a lot of wannbees on this forum are more worried about looking cool than getting the job done.

At the Robbinsville,NC dump.
