Found these on another forum.
Very cool. Is this guy on here?
Thought you'd appreciate hearing I just finished bolting a Givi plate to the new FJR...
That Z1000 system is nicely done.
I sort of like my top box. Original owner called it the shoe. Nice to lock up stuff on errands and such, but off road on my poor man's KLR I will not take it. I had my laptop, paper stuff and food in mine in my fly and ride.
Gonna make a dog carrier for the KLR, cut out the top of a pet carrier where the handle is so she can see. My Aussie will go exploring with me soon.
It beats strapping on a backpack.
HAH- because it's too small to be a boot.
Depends on the backpack I guess. Look into a Kriega.
Still waiting Mr. Woodward
Slow day at work?
Left to right: At the very left edge is the TOPBOX on my DRZ400SM;
the back part of my Tiger 800XC and it's TOPBOX;
behind that you can see the yellow handguard and TOPBOX of the KLR650 that BoyChild rides;
dead center is the new hotness 2013 FJR1300 and AWACS-sized TOPBOX;
to the right of that is Spouse Unit's Speed Four and it's TOPBOX;
and in the bottom right corner is my Aprilia Falco which doesn't currently have a TOPBOX on it- but there is a mounting plate for a TOPBOX under that tarp.
Only bike that doesn't have one, or means of carrying one- and believe me, I thought long and hard on how to do it- is the VTR250 behind me.
You really need to get a milk crate for that KLR.
You kiddin' me? you know how much milk crates cost?
(About $7/each, but you have to buy at least six. That's like a fortune to a KLR rider...)
Surely you just find a disused one in a skip at the back of a cafe, or beg a scruffy looking worn out one from the local dairy?
Y'know, if you're a KLR rider.
It's a handy place to put your girlfriends purse!
saw this on my bike ride to work. doubled back for a pic thinking of this thread... makes a milk crate look classy.
front shot: (blinkers???)
What is that bag, if you don't mind me asking? Looks like you could lean back against it for support. And does it secure with straps or bungees?
btw great photos! Can I assume NOVA is northern Virginia?
The bag on the Z looks like its a Ventura rack and pack.
When it comes to top boxes i agree that its not the best look on most of the bike, but when your touring who cares about how it looks, its the enjoyment of the trip thats nr1.
When i am home and go for day trips i go for the poser look, but for 2-3 weeks trip practicality is the way to go
Yes, NoVA is Northern Virginia.
Tom-Nor is correct, it's a Ventura rack and a Ventura Mistral 1 bag.
It's secures with two snap-buckles on the bottom.
Wouldn't leave home without it!
