Anybody tried out the 1600? I have 1550s as saddlebags but I am thinking about a lockable top box before going to Mexico. Is the 1600 too big?

I have a 1550 as a top box and it feels a bit on the big side but that's just me. When I add the panniers, those will also be 1550's so maybe the top box will look normal.

It's great to have the right tool, but IME, you really don't need that much redundancy to fix most thumpers.

It is better to have a and not need it, than to need a and not have it.
