Based out of Japan the company and product have decent reviews. Just ordered one, came to $30 bucks and change for piece and shipping to US which should take around a week.

You will need some basic hardware to mount it up (from Ace Hardware, Home Depot, etc). PM me if you require any help!

Looks to me like he bolted a small case onto a factory cowl, and is perhaps using the bungees to stabilize wobble?

correct, the bungies are really not needed but they pull the case down and make it a little more sturdy. It works perfect and keeps the gear dry and adds as a nice little back support.

Cheers gentlemen. My wife is wanting to get into riding and I have come across a copper 2003 SV650 for a bit more than $3000. How do you think this thing would perform as a starter bike? We don't have the kinda of money to get a 250 then move up, so I was looking for something not too intimidation that she could kinda grow into. I have another female friend that rides one and she loves hers.

Thoughts on practicality and price?
