Thumb CJ Designs Storage Box on my 2011 990 Adventure

Link to the box -

http://www.cjdesignsllc.com/products...990-adventure/

Very easy to install on the left side of my ADV after installing the Remus Roxx exhaust system.

Installed -



I have enough room to install my tire kit + 2 tubes (wrapped in old socks to protect them) -



There is still some room left over -



Overall I am very happy with the storage box as it frees up some space in the Gobi tail box and is always with me regardless of how I configure the bike.

If you get creative you can pack a lot of stuff in there. I have a spare front and rear tubes (but no socks), a tool roll, 50-feet of nylon rope (intended to hang food at camp sites), some TP in a plastic bag, a small plastic shovel (to work with the TP), some shop rags, a patch kit, some duct tape (smashed the roll to lay flatter), and a cargo net all crammed into mine. These are great features to have on the bike. Frees up a lot of room and weight from the tank bag.

Looks really good. Although I appreciate the decision to keep things simple and not have a locking cover that can jam up with mud or rust up, I think a lot of people would have liked at a provision to add a lock (I'm thinking maybe a pair of eyelets welded to the top side of the lid so a small lock can be used (keyed to match the locks on the Zegas, for example). My ProMotion tire irons weren't cheap but even if they were, I would be choked to need them one day only to find out some kids tossed them into the dumpster as a joke while I was paying for gas.

I too have thought about a lock system for the box. A simple metal strap/hasp would be an easy mod - as long as it was designed to apply pressure to the lid to keep the box water tight.

Maybe it's just dumb luck, but I've traveled more than 12,000 miles in long-distance bike trips lately and have never had anyone screw with my unattended bike while either using the bathroom or eating lunch.

But, if a lock was necessary, it might be possible to thread a small cable lock like this one...



through the strap eyelets.

Seriously, looks great, Leigh

Mine came in very handy while on my trip to the Great White North a few weeks ago. As much as I hated the road site repair I was forced to do, it was awesome to have my tools readily-available and easily-accessible.

Of course, my black box is faster than yours

I bought a can of black epoxy paint for the box but decided to leave it natural to match the exhaust.

Glad to hear that it worked out good for you!
