Hey fellow riders...looking for some advice.
Taken the plunge/gamble/risk and planned a touring trip to Switzerland for end of August to hook up with some mates who are there for a month. I am going to be riding with my other half as pillion, and have some big days planned in the saddle.
I have never liked top boxes, but think it maybe a sensible to have one to a) add storage and b) something for the pillion to be able to lean against on long stints. I want one that doesn't stand too high on the bike or too far back. The Shad ones that some have posted (and appreciate maybe camera angle) I think look odd, so are there other options?
The top box will need to work with panniers (Kawasaki fit ones) and also be easy to remove once I get back (so don't want to be chopping anything off the bike as likely I'll take off afterwards).
Open to advice and also if you can post pictures of your current setup it would be very welcome. Also any links to where I can purchase those options.
