The large capacity is great for the camping road trips plus it looks good. It does increase the ease of pulling wheelies when loaded...  :-\

Ok, now for some pics of mama's setup... Happy Mom's Day!  :-*

One of the main reasons I got this big behemoth was for mama, she really wanted some more comfort on the back for when she rides with me. I even almost bought a BMW K GT16 the other month specifically just for that...  :truce:


But now with this trunk I think she's gonna be quite pleased and comfy on the back, I just got done adjusting Phils rails/sliders in about a half dozen positions until we finally got it to where she was like "oh man, that's nice!!" She was kinda sketch about the armrests but once we got the backrest right she says they're in the perfect spot and very comfy!  :great: :great:


Win win with this trunk IMO, more storage for my trek to the Nat, and weekend trips with mama on the back and her being comfy, a happy mama makes a happy ZG!
  :sign0151: :hitit: :beerchug:


Hmmmm... now what should I spend that $ for the GT16 on...  ??? :) >:D :))

Unfortunately, you cropped the photo just enough to exclude the "sky-hook" holding the trunk up.

That thing is hideous. Too each their own, but there is no way I would put thing on an otherwise nice bike. Sorry but it looks like crap.

Ok, looks like GE heard that you're looking for auxiliary power to propel down the road, and in compact size to fit under the case, they're also showing off the lastest and greatest in 3d printing..

Looking at that last pic it's hard to believe there's no support brackets underneath like I've seen on smaller cases. Does it feel sturdy? I'm sure there's more to it than the eye can see.

Have you considered a helium balloon in there to put a few lbs back onto the forks??!! :))
