Get over it man! I'm 5-7, short and fat. I went to Alaska in 07 on my 12GS. Can I flat foot it? Are you kidding? I can't flat foot a minibike.

Mounted a Vario topcase on a Super Pillion Plate?

Anyone done this? If so, how? Was the SPP installed right side up or down? If down, do the vario side bags clear the plate?

Or should I dump the BM case and get a Pellican?
