Nice Trunk...Pretty Cheap

I just bought an EMGO trunk at newenough:

http://www.newenoughhp.com/luggage/t..._tail_bag.html

Just came in the mail. I have not installed it yet, but it looks like it will be a snap. I like the trunk...a little taller than some I've seen and not as wide. Now what the hell am I gonna do with my Action Packer.

I am not affiliated with NewEnough...I just think they do good business.

$59. Plus shipping. Cheapest I could find.

Do you know if it'll fit an '08/09 KLR?

Yeah, I have an 08. Haven't put it on yet, but it will fit (99% sure). I'll be putting it on in the next week or so and let y'all know.

Great trunks...thats the one I wish I hadn't got rid of. I liked it better than the large JCWhitney one I have now.

Looking forward to the install update. A LOT cheaper than the caribou case I was looking at.

LOL. We have a four month old, so my folks are in grandparent heaven. I haven't put it on yet, but I looked at it yesterday. It will fit with minor modification. I think it might fit the pre-08's straight up, but two of the holes don't quite match up on mine. Nothing that a round file can't fix. I am basically mechanically inept, and I have no doubt we will get that bad boy on and secure.

I'll post a pic and report when I get it done. Sorry for the delay...seems like no one but me thinks putting the trunk on is that important.

Thanks man. Yeah, I still find time to ride (I commute so that helps). And sometimes I take the...uhh...scenic route home. Fishing...been too long since I've been fishing.

Put the trunk on tonight. Too dark to take pics, but will tomm. Here's the deal. I think if I had an older KLR the mount holes would have matched up perfect. As it is, the front attached perfect with the bolts provided. I could have drilled it out and made it work for the back attachment, but the hardware store was closed and the provided bolts would not have worked, so I used zip ties in the back, but it is on there solid. Doubt I'll ever change it.

Pics will make it make more sense, but I would buy it again. Stoked to have it and a good size...not too wide. I doubt anyone would be disappointed if they got one.
