My first purchase for the Big Red Beast:      It is the Emgo Portable Trunk from NewEnough, complete with Connie install instructions.  And with a discount.    Once the Ninja sells, I am going to buy some tip-over bars.  : 36k miles  2007 Ninja 250: 15k miles

Oh, sorry, I had assumed every biker knew about NewEnough.com.  $59 before a 10% coupon, which took care of shipping.    I shop often at NewEnough.  Excellent service, quick shipping, good folks overall so I like to give them my business when I can.  : 36k miles  2007 Ninja 250: 15k miles

 Been using this trunk on both the Connie and KLR since about 2000? Got mine from JCW, same brand.   Very pleased with it and holds a full face helmet plus a light jacket/ gloves....   Dan P COG 2877

I am not too much into farkling.  I do want some functional enhancements for a bike, like luggage.  The tip-over bars will definitely be an insurance policy.  That will be pretty much it unless I want to upgrade the horn to something much bigger and louder.    Is it wrong to want to scare the bejeezus out of cars near you with your horn? :eg:  : 36k miles  2007 Ninja 250: 15k miles

I have the same trunk on my C14.  Put it on a few weeks ago.  So far so good. So much more convenient for storing the things that I need access to on a regular basis than the side bags are.  I read a post that suggests adding some extra bolts to attach the box directly to the mounting plate as insurance to prevent it from coming off.  I haven't done it, I like the option of having it as a removable top case.      Oh, and the louder the horn the better!!

I haven't installed it, yet.  Until the weather gets consistently warm, I tend to work on in-house projects more often.  That, and I don't actually NEED the trunk right now.  : 37k miles  2007 Ninja 250: 15k miles

Okay, I give.  How do you mount this to a C10?    I finally got around to working on the bike today.  The new Murph's Gel Grips are installed (that was a royal PITA) and now I am trying to tackle the top case.    I just don't get it.  Anyone else installed this case on a C10?  The instructions at New Enough are for a C14 and don't work for a C10.  : 38k miles

I am assuming this trunk has the quick coupling mount.  If it does and you have the Kaw rear luggage rack you can drill 4 or 6 holes and mount directly to the rack.  Works great.  I have been using mine for years.  I added a back rest pad for passenger.

My plan is thus...to buy a small cutting board from the cooking section at Meijer and mod that into the plate the Emgo base plate will be attached.  I will be replacing the Connie plate assembly with the cutting board, re-using the screws currently in use.    I report the results later.  : 38k miles

I seem to remember a thread on the old forum about a lot of jcw bags just falling of while riding. Is this the same bag???[/i]    I also had this trunk, and bought from JCW. I had this trunk on my Concours, mounted to a Ronnie Lyons rack for about a year. I liked it and never had any problems with it.    I also had the other style (Givi Knock off) JCW trunk on my DR, and I was one of the ones that posted about the junk latch on that trunk that broke while riding, and I almost lost the trunk @ 50mph.    I've had both, and I thought this one was better built, than the other. I have a Givi now, and there is no comparison. If you plan to carry valuable items in your top case, remember, you get what you pay for. I almost learned that lesson the hard way.

I picked up a red cutting board and will be modding that as the new base plate for the Emgo mounting plate to be attached.  : 38k miles
