"Ebay pegs" looks more like "home security system" to me.

Nice looking Sheppard!!

Is that a JCWhitney top box??? How do you like it on the KLR and have you had problems with the latch??? I just bought one for my scooter and I think the latch is pretty cheap!! I just don't know how it would do on a off road trip!! How does your's do??? I recently saw a youtube video that showed a top box popping open, so I was currious if your has??

I bought a Harbor Frieght Tools, tool box for mine, but I am still wanting something else for a top box!! Just can't figure out what I want!! LOL

Thanks,
Kim

LOL, yeah thats an odd looking peg huh?.... and I even previewed my post..geeze!!!

Yes that is a Whitney top box. Have had it for quite some time. Off road consisting of gravel and some small berms. Never have had a problem with the latch. The only way I can see the box being an issue is if your plan on jumping the bike or wrecking it 'often'. Papers recommendation of a Pelican case is probably the best ideal case due to its bomb proof design. Those cases are just 'tough'. There is also a brand called Turtle Shell that is identical to the Pelicans in all respects but a bit less $$.. You can find a few on EBay.
