  1. Topbox recommendations?

    Product Reviews
    So I had one of these cheap eBay top boxes, which was wrecked in my little accident last week. I could get another one for $33, but 1) it wasn't big enough for my helmet, and 2) it was pretty cheap in all senses of the word. OTOH, my bike came with aluminum Happy Trail panniers (for which I...

  6. Top Case - Emgo fits

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    After spending hours looking at all the various top cases, I couldn't get away from thinking the Emgo Trunk just looked right. Not too adventure, not too Buck Rogers. At $67.45 shipped on eBay, it's inexpensive. My XL Arai Corsair fits fine. The quality seems good. I've ridden about 250 miles...

    DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I'm sure there are lots of threads on top case options but when I search on the terms "top" and "case" it says they are "too general" and it returns no results. I just bought an '07 DL-1000 that already has an OEM rack and side cases. Ideally I would like the factory top case so it would...
