    Hello all hope riding has been good. I am now a proud owner of a 06 950 Adventure! I am super excited but I have a quick question and I apologize if there is a thread for this but I am not having luck finding it through a search.

    I currently have the Gobi side bags and am looking to get a top bag. I was wondering if the KTM or Gobi bags will fit a helmet? If not who makes one that will?

    Thanks in advance!

    I wear an XL and it fits in my Gobi Top Box okay.

    As for others, the 34L Caribou will also fit a helmet.

    I have the KTM top box which I believe is the same as the Gobi. My XL Arai Profile barely fits after slight modification of the interior top with a heat gun. Uh modification of the box NOT the helmet.....

    Thanks for the answers, I picked myself up a Hepco-Becker with bracket for $100. Not the same bag as the stock ones but it is bigger and I will only use it when touring so I am good with it not looking the same.

    There's the answer. I was going to tackle the inner lid with a hole saw. Much more elegant solution.

    Thanks!
