Monokey compatibility

Just thought I'd share this. I was looking at ordering a set of Givi Trekker 46L cases but decided to hold off. Today while changing from the PL racks back to the PLX racks that I have cases for I decided to do a little test. I took the Kappa K53 trunk that I have and mounted it on the Monokey PL side rack. Lo and behold it clicked right on. I don't remember exactly what I paid for it but I'm pretty sure it was less than $200. It looks huge on the V, cuts into the passenger leg room and would need the rear signals (on Mk1's at least) relocated farther rearward. But for less than $400 (if you already have Monokey PL side racks) there's 106L of storage, compared to the 70 the V35's offer and at a lower price. Here's some pictures.

Sorry for the delay on the pictures. Here they are. Keep in mind this is a K53 Trunk that will fit two full face helmets on their sides.

Ain't no party like a Herk party...coming to a dangerous, dirty, shabby, and otherwise undesirable country near you.
