Oooooooooh Im so excited!

My new 46 litre topbox and 33litre panniers and frames etc have all just been delivered(into my neighbours houses since I am in work )

I cant wait to get them all fitted and out using them, maybe Ill even get the photos up on here too(Ive yet to post even one) - maybe a before and after of the bike would be good.

Even got the little cushion for the missus - at last I can fully accelerate without her pooing her pants everytime and grabbing onto me for dear life

I got my topbox for the helmets, fits 2 fullface(I checked earlier ) and then one side each for me and the missus...although I will be probably lucky to get the last 5 litres in one side lol.

I had soft bags on mine at first. gave them to my brother to put on his cruiser looked perfect on his. then went with a Givi V-46 and added a cortech tail bag. Sold the 46 have a E-55 with backrest coming in today. Will post some pics. If i find more things to haul around i might have to go your route with those bags you ordered. Post some pics to show how they look on your bike please

I was thinking of going bigger with the topbox, my supplier only had 48 litre but said the bigger they are the weirder they look, so he put me off - although the bigger it is the more you can carry...its a trade off.

Will def get some pics up when its done.

I am liking the bike Weljo, nice colour. Nice to have all the different options too. Im too lazy to be messing about with stuff, Ill end up with the topbox on at all times, and the panniers for when I need them. Not gonna look good with just the frames on, not MOtech either so cant just take em off, but hey ho, when needs must.

The 55 stays on most of the time. Sold the 46 but i'm suprised how much stuff can go in the tail bag.

I kind of like the look of the bike with the side cases on. Not so much the top case.
