You can get them here.View attachment 31206 I'm sure this won't be to everyone's taste, but I like to be able to use a top-box/tour-pak when touring, and I quite like the look of my old Givi E450N on the Scout; although I wish I could get Indian decals for it - the Moto Guzzi ones seem a little out of place now!
That's the standard Indian rack, with the Givi universal mounting plate; if anyone follows my example please take care to put the bolts of the mounting plate in upside down, so they do not scratch the fender - thankfully, I spotted the potential problem before it became a problem!Looks like that works well for you. What rack is that.....??....
Thanks. I do like having something I can easily throw my helmet gloves and gps in at coffee stops, rather than trying to find a safe place for them in a crowded café.I think it looks ok. Gives it a utilitarian vibe. I'll be glad when there are more hard luggage choices for the Scout.
For this purpose can totally understand, but don't think would be a good idea to load it up with heavy tools mounted that high up ..Thanks. I do like having something I can easily throw my helmet gloves and gps in at coffee stops, rather than trying to find a safe place for them in a crowded café.
I can see where you're coming from, but our perception may depend on how we have seen things used in the past. This box was designed for sports-touring bikes, and I've found it a useful and attractive accessory on my previous bikes - which doesn't mean it suits the Scout! Although I think I like it. (Please excuse the poor photo of the Cali):That hard box belongs on the back of a Piaggio scooter. The beloved Scout has turned into a Nerd-cycle.
That's the MRA X-creen; it's a spoiler that adds a bit of height to the screen and breaks up the airflow, reducing turbulence. They produce two sizes. I first used one on my first Cali, which worked brilliantly; I then used the smaller version on my Breva, which worked well enough. That's the one I'm trying out on the Scout. It really does help, although it doesn't eliminate the slight front end wiggle caused by the standard mid-screen.What do you call that thing at the top of your windshield?
Thank you; and that top box looks really good with the Shadow.I used a Givi Trekker topbox on my Shadow, which I think goes with a cruiser slightly better. I would never criticise a topbox though, they're just so useful ... and enable you to ride more! This bike has an MRA screen with deflector too.
PS. I like Graham's setup with the topbox in the pillion position, this one sits behind the pillion.
