Detachable top case, or side case , wheeled, with extending handle

Wanted:

Detachable top case, or side case , wheeled, with extending handle - i.e., rolling (hard) luggage

anyone heard of such a thing, or seen it.

My back is complaining, and such a thing would help with hauling "homework" around.

Current Bike: 2007 ABS Wee, rebuilt forks with Cogent DDC, Elka rear shock, tapered roller steering stem bearings, fork brace, Admore top box lights, LED side-only turn indicator lights, Powerlet outlet, frame sliders, Givi windscreen, Givi top box.

Prior Bikes: 2003 EX250, 2007 DL650 (non-ABS)

something like this might work as a top case with a little fiddling and use another company's attachment system

Seahorse Cases - Waterproof - Protective - Made in USA makes a model #SE-920 24"x15"x10" hardcase with wheels and an extending handle for $75 usd. They also have a larger one called the SE-1220 at 28"x22"x15" that goes for $138. These cases are made to the exact same military standards as the Pelican cases and lots of guys modify their cases to use them as "bulletproof" sidecases.

There are Flight bags or Catalog cases that do exactly what you want. Haliburton's Zero case is aluminum, water proof,(it will float forever), and you could drive a truck over it and not hurt it. I have the set my dad used. The suit cases were made in about 1948 and are still in good shape after 60+ yrs of constant traveling for a living.
