    Well, you got the "show" part figured out, now how about the "tell" part? lol That's a trunk box like I've not seen before. It looks to be Honda, but mine sure didn't look or work that way.

    IMHO, the Honda top trunk is the most useless dead weight you can carry on any trip.

    I live on a one-way street that's also a dead end. I'm not sure how I got here, or how I'm going to get out.

    Fabricated the black rack on the rear box for rain gear . That way its convenient to get to and does not take up storage for other things. And made a shadow box for the gps and it protects it from the rain and other things

    Yeah, it's the shadow box that caught my eye. Nice. Is it metal or plastic? I"m going to have to do something similar. I took my cx500 out for the first time this year with a Ram iPhone mount, but without the shroud, I couldn't see anything. I mounted mine on the fairing dash, though. I don't like to have so much stuff right in front of me like that.

    the shadow box is 1/32 aluminum . Wish I made the sides a little taller but I can still see the gps in full sun light .
