    I didn't know you could get a full face inside any of the boxes. That's nifty. No more carrying the helmet into the store/office/whatever. Yet another win.

    It might be dependent on the helmet. Using the top box, my RS-1 fits no problem, but my MX-9 Adventure does not (vertical clearance). The SO's previous helmet, a Small HJC CL-17 also did not (again, vertical clearance). Granted I only ever tried orienting them one way, I might be able to fit them sideways but I never tried.

    KTM also sells a massive top box that will supposedly fit 2 helmets, this thing: KTM - READY TO RACE

    Box opening is 13.75x12 inch. That's measured side to side (horizontal clearance) by top lip to bottom lip (vertical clearance). Some people may not like the L shaped covers, but I adore them myself.

    If my high school geometry is correct, that sounds like something around 18 1/4" in the diagonal. Meaning my work junk would drop right in there.
    Like them boxes. Do want.

    There it is, folks. The moment Bubs was sold on the idea. All about the top cases.

    The package, actually. I'm not going to lie; quality, usable cases on a bike sweetens the deal a lot.
    One to rule them all. We'll keep the KTM 200 and low-buck SV for the rest.

    Now I just need a good deal on the bike.

    Sounds like the only thing they still need to develop is a tire kicker sensor

    Shocking, even I bought a bike before Bubs.

    And it fits two helmets in the tail box too.

    High HP adventure bikes with luggage? Yup, they're awesome. Not sure I'd do anything much more challenging than an unmaintained fire road though.

    This is from my latest trip:
