Topcase w/ Happy Trails Teton side cases

Hi everyone. I have a new DL650A that I put HT Teton side cases (with HT side case rack) on the bike. As far as carrying capacity, I think they will be fine, but I would like to have a topcase. I want this primarily to put my helmet in and keep it out of the weather. The inside spacing of the HT sidecases (which are top loading) is ~21-1/4". This seems to limit me to a top case about the same width. I would like something in the 40L or so, but most of the ones I see are ~22" wide and may not fit. What topcases are other people using, especially if you have HT sidecases.

Thanks,
Ed

The top cases seem to sit high enough that opening/closing panniers isn't a problem (for me). I have a Givi 52l topbox, HT tetons on their SU rack.

I just put the Happy Trails Tetons on my wifes bike and they work fine with the givi 52 liter top case.

Keep the Rubber Side Down.
