Postman Pat Top Box.
« on: September 04, 2015, 04:57:00 PM »
Just post your letters in here ......
The new top box coloured shell is, er, very, um ...... red. 
But it is either red or grey so on balance red is - um - redder.  It certainly matches the red of the bike.

One things for sure.......it's almost impossible to find a top box that makes any bike look better than it did without it!!  :002:
Many people ride.....but for a select group of people it's more than a ride....it's one of life's great passions.

Agreed. I generally don't like top boxes, and prefer soft luggage on the XR.

Saying that, the top box on my GSA doesn't look too shabby!

That drive needs a clean !  :001:

As a fan boy of the hard ali cases on the GSA I hate the hard options for the XR it just spoils it IMO

I have the big BMW soft bag for trips which admittedly does look like a Pizza delivery system but its for trips !

I think it looks o.k.... As someone has said any box on it will ruin the looks but I've seen a lot worse
