I have the Suzuki version of the same box. It is shocking how much stuff you can really carry in them. Make sure you balance your load and keep the heaviest stuff low, inboard and forward if possible. I've done our family grocery shopping on several occasions, and had no problems. Mind you, I,m not doing cases of Costco paper towels, but I can bring home a week's worth of meat, produce, dairy and canned goods.
Of course they are great for camping trips too.
Once, I unloaded my bike into the trunk of my wife's mid-sized car and it took up about half of the space. We were both surprised.
I have found that if there is a strong blowing rain from the rear, they do leak.
