    When I first picked up the latest Postie bike, I just rode down to the loading dock at Woollies and just asked if I could have a milk crate.

    The bloke there just asked me if it was for the bike, and I said "No, it's for my KLR" [ which I don't have ]

    He must have been in the know, cos he laughed his head off and gave me one AND a bread crate.

    Tip, if you mount the bread crate sideways it will touch the sides of cars while you filter between them.....

    Just been testing the all new wind tunnel developed, aerodynamic and cnc cut, ergonomically designed top box from Dairy farmers. Zip tie attachment to rear rack for maximum weight saving and break away in event of a crash.

    Would, not, hesitate, throwing myself under my milk crate to protect it in the ever increasing and expected event of a crash.

    Some say dedication to the cause - I just think its true love. :raabia

    Typical of the Youth of today showing total disrespect for a true Ossie Icon. :(

    And always nice to see the mighty milk crate not taking being stepped on lightly. :-)

    All they need is a way to water proof them without blowing the budget...Eureka...a garbage bin liner and Bob's your uncle.
    Note: the strategic use of the trusty zip ties.

    Lane filtering may be a problem?? Necessary option when you leave the helmet at home!!

    these threads are KiLleRs, funnier than the pirate joke thread. just what I need .
    Kawasaki might just ruin the whole thing and build a replacement, that is Light, with power.
