How do they affect the handling (ride) of the bike? Don't you know those things are ugly? I know they can be handy and all... I am not trying to pick a fight or anything...but I just witnessed an HP2 with one and wanted to. Now there are some that look better than others so I am going to go with the ugly scale. (a modified version of the Wiley scale for men’s boots... Wiley, you know who you are you yodeling maniac) So as I see it there is: ■ Not so ugly ■ More so ugly ■ So so ugly ■ Oh so ugly and to top off the Top Box ugly scale. ■ Fugly (or fugly ugly) So what is up with them? There is only a handful of bikes made to even support the things. They don't look out of place on the rolling BARCO loungers like Goldwings and such. On an Adventure bike...UGLY!!! So what is it? Why do you feel you need them high speed wobble inducing ugly boxes? Why do you need sooooo much stuff? A dry bag looks so much better. Just saying.
