Top case. The BMW large 49 liter top case is big and ugly, but very practical, and it comes with a backrest pad. My bride won't go riding without it. It can hold two helmets, or lots of gear, or whatever your bride buys while you are out. It attaches to your rack without an adapter, and you can easily key it to match your ignition. My local dealer re-keyed mine at no charge. Some dealers may charge a modest fee to rekey it.
I have a used BMW 49 liter top case that I would be willing to sell for $289 plus shipping (vs. $800+ for new, plus sales tax). Send a PM if you are interested. It is painted metallic blue and scratched from an accident, but otherwise in good working condition. You can clean it up and paint it to match your bike. The backrest pad is in perfect condition.
