Luggage trunk ideas?
Hi
I have been having a tough time deciding on what kind of trunk to install on my VSTAR 1300 tourer 2007. I like the idea of having additional running lights, blinkers and brake lights incorporated into the trunk. I also would like to get something that is big and roomy enough to fit two full size helmets in.


Another consideration is to have a quick release option. I have the oem sissy bars on right now with the leather covered hard saddlebags.

Any suggestions?

Are you thinking of locking "trunks"?
There is great need for a sarcasm font.

Definetly locking. What I would like the trunk to do is to be able to hold 2 motorcycle helmets. The two motorcycle helmets would be the modular type.
Thanks

Holy carmel corn! That's 950 bucks bag and hardware! I don't think I could spend almost 15% of what I paid new OTD for my 650 for a trunk. Sure looks sweet, though, and even more so if you've got matching bags...

Re: Luggage trunk ideas?
Your right the price is high. They have a similar one that direct include the lock and just falls shy of fitting two full sized helmets in the trunk.....maybe we could hope to win the lottery....yeah? Lol

I used to have to have those when I went swimming and I was young and virile. Smile

Re: Luggage trunk ideas?
Lol that is great. having a lock on his trunks would assume that someone wanted the contents inside. That's its not necessarily a bad thing.:P

RE: Luggage trunk ideas?
another option for less cost. also believe most require you to have the rear rack installed for it to be mounted to, was hard to tell but didn't look like you have the rack.

RE: Luggage trunk ideas?
I'm in the same boat...trying to find a trunk that will actually look "appropriate" on my 650 Custom while having room for a helmet and mesh jacket and not having much luck. I'm beginning to think I'm going to dump the whole idea of a trunk and just put a rack and sissy bar and strap my laptop bag to it when going to work.

I've ridden to work with the laptop on my back a couple times now and it's not terrible but not good either because I have lower back problems - I'd rather get the weight off my back and on the bike.

Some of the trunks look okay I just don't think they go with my bike and the end-state vision I have for it...

Hey hey hey.... for like 60 dollars that trunk didn't look to shabby. But I just thought...how much is the shipping???.... probly one of those great deals but then they destroy you with shipping it.

Why don't you buy a cardboard box, wrap it with some camo or colored duct tape for water proofing and call it a day.
