I know this has been done before (since I got the idea on this site) but I thought I'd post some pics in case anybody wants to see.

I like it a lot because it is cheap yet effective, and since I'm lazy, I can lean back against the box on the highway!

PS the scrapes on the grab bar are not from the ubolts, thats from when i dumped my bike and didn't bother repainting it.

I suggest drilling a hole in each corner and loop a bungee cord around the hooks ;)

checked the price of the givi rack and box and I decided to go this way.

It doesn't look good, but it cost me 40$ instead of a couple hundreds. Besides, when you take it off, you're not stuck with a rack of anything ;)

Is this the 8-gallon version of the Action Packer? Can you fit 2 helmets inside? How rigid is this box?

Thanks,

Ilya.

Only brain buckets, not full faces. The box isn't deep enough.

The box is rigid enough for this use but I strongly suggest to use big washers around the holes and the bungee loops as an extra safety.

Thanks for posting this. I've been trying to find pictures of it while over here but they are all blocked. Now I finally see how to do it when I get back.

Sorry to burst your bubble dude.. It's for real.

I don't have to show off on 2 wheels to impress anyone or feel good. I have the sweetest babe at home and I am keeping her for myself ;D

I really don't see why you all have suck a problem with it. It's not like I ride around the city with it on there. It's for extended trips where you must carry with you food, shelter, clothing etc. I'd rathar have a box on my bike than turn into Quasi Moto from riding day after day with a backpack on.We're not all born into rich ***** families. ;D
