That's a huge old "King Pelican" I've had since...the late 70's? Something like that.

It's too big for the dirt but I like it for mostly pavement trips, which this one was:

I've got kind of a "quiver" of top boxes, given my prior career in commercial photography. My usual top box is a 1450, which is a much better all-around box.

On top of it here is a Kriega US5, which is my "aw, shit" bag--first aid, backcountry spend-the-night stuff, etc. It's gonna move to the front of the the case as a backrest for my 11-year-old who often rides along, which will free the top of the box back up for layer storage, etc.

Found a side view:

I have a couple of the newer "storm"/ hardigg(?) cases waiting to get drilled for mounting but I'm waiting on a new rack plate from CJ before I put any more holes in stuff...
When in doubt, PIN IT! It may not help, but it'll sure end the suspense...
