Lots of folks have. Hear they work great. I bought one when I first got my bike and then ended up getting a trunk and giving it to my wife.

Have had one on since Feburary. Used on a trip to Alaska and back. It is fairly secure with 2 padlocks and has never leaked at all.

I have one like JHP, had it for about a year. Got it at Wally World for under $20. Holds a lot of stuff and has never gotten wet inside.

Sweet Bike man…… That looks so cool with all your gear on it…… I would love to see more pictures of bikes with “I have an idea” bags and trunks on them. I love original stuff…

I normally do not carry that much stuff but that was on a month long trip to Alaska. Notice the tank bag hung over my left saddlebag? That was on the tank but was causing my bike to over heat so I moved it to there. Worked well. The Action Packer may not look as good as the expensive trunks but is very functional.

A friend or mine has one on his 2008. Works great and the price is right. He wants to put an aluminium plate (I suggested plywood lol) so he can sit it back a couple of inches to access the tool kit and make it more comfortable for 2 up riding.
