K1200RS Top Case

I've never been much for top cases on motorcycles, but I saw this hard cased Axio backpack on sale at Honda East for $70 and got an idea. Let's take my BMW OEM Tail Rack that I already have and mount the backpack on it.

What do you think?

Nice - but beware the BMW luggage rack

Looks great, but don't overload it - the BMW base plate can come off at the most inopportune times! Always keep an eye on the rubber pads on the base plate that contact the luggae rack - if they fall off or get worn, you will be minus your top case in short order.

Isn't amazing that the BMW rack costs 2X the price of the case? Chalk it up to German vs. Chinese work weeks...
