BIG box

Just ordered a new trunk off Ebay. Claims to be 24" x 18" x 13". As a comparison the Give "55" is supposedly 22" x 16.5" x 13". Have no idea as to the quality but it is MUCH larger than the OEM Kawi box. Will see if I can copy the link and add to this???

Got the box in and installed. The measurements listed were about as accurate as the V's factory speedo. That said, it is still a LARGE box and the quality appears to be quite acceptable (in fact almost up Givi level). Novel box attachment that requires you to open the box to take it off the base plate (a folding thumb screw). I measure 23" x 16.5" x 12.5, or, about like the Givi "55". If I can figure out how to post a pic will show box mounted on the RED V. Cost was $116 delivered.
Later,

JCC

Wow, that box is huge. Have you tried to put two helmets in it?

A Givi E52 will hold two, so I am sure that one will too.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Ok, looks to me like it's ebay or the seller that is blocking the image. I saved the picture to my computer, then put it in my photobucket account & it works that way. Not sure how or why, but that seems to be the answer...

Are you using the Insert Image icon on the message editing toolbar?

I use a Mac almost exclusively and post links such as this one above, as well as upload pics such as these below:

Just seeing if I got it correct this time.

The Picasa terminology confused my poor demented brain!

Thanks for all help :>)~

Three ten pointers (one muley, two white tails) and a wide eight. Just a few of the ones killed over the years.
