My heart is set on the adventure tourer look and it is the Pelican style that I am after

Narrowed it down to:
Pelican 1620 at 24.8 x 19.4 x 13.9
B&W B55 at 17.91" x 14.37" x 12.40"

It will be paired with either of these as panniers, but for everyday use the panniers are removed for lane splitting and it will be just the top box alone:
Seahorse 720 at 20.19 x 15.53 x 7.48"
Pelican storm at 21.2 x 16 x 8.3

Do you think that the Pelican 1620 will look too large as a top box, specially when run without panniers?
Since I do not have a passenger will be mounted forward over the passenger position to keep the weight over the axle, and even longitudinally if required

Am in the Philippines now and my buddy carried over the B&W 55 as a suitcase and I will take back to Thailand as my luggage and avoid doubling the cost
I have not therefore mounted it yet, but will do so and post a pic

Panniers are not yet bought and will have to wait and come back as luggage when I go to Canada this summer

You guys in the US are lucky and can just order what you need at a fair price

I have a Givi. I think it's 35 liter, easily holds a helmet. It is their top of the line model and BEST OF ALL it has a remote to open it. They gave me this model for the price of a cheaper model because the cheaper unit was out of stock. I put the givi back rest on it for the wife. The remote is MAGIC. Push the button and it opens. No key needed. The box is excellent as well.

It's a great idea...until the bungee cord snaps and your bag of groceries go bouncing down the hi way, Don't ask HOW I know just use lots of bungees is all I can say.
