Trunk

I was looking at this and wondering if anyone has seen this? I emailed the seller to see if it would fit my 05 c50. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Thank you.

I'm guessing it's the $99 Matazu trunk.

I have one and I use it on quick detach mount on my Harley Street Glide.

I love the damm thing.

It's no $800 tour pak, but I can buy 8 or 'em for the price of one TourPack.

I was very surprised with the quality of a $100 trunk.

I have no regrets.

Thank you very much....I like this better than the saddlebags I have been looking at. Thought it was nice that it had a luggage rack, and backrest. I don't have a sissy bar or luggage rack, and it looked like it would fulfill everything I wanted right now without spending a whole lot of money.... : )

yup, yer gonna need somthing to mount it on.

Just make sure that you put it on a sturdy luggage rack that will support it.

If you have a passenger that leans against it when you ride two up, that will shorten it's service life 'cause it's not real thick plastic, but as I say, it's thicker than I thought it'd be for a hundred bucks.

It will last me 5 years as opposed to a Tourpak that would last me 10 years but cost me 8 times the price.

Roll the dice, I think you'll be happy with it.

Hey Viper, can you post a Pix of this TP on your scoot. Thanks....Looks like the ones a few VR Members used during the last OctVRfest in New York. Thanks again, D

Yes Dennis, how did you live w/o it? Thats my winter project along the upgrade Stereo, Arc Amp, 6 1/2' speakers, Head Unit, and maybe lowers speakers...Ditching the Soft Tourpak I used at our OctVRfest so the next fest I could bring more beer.....I knew there was a good ending. Take care, D
