Hi All, First time poster, but the forums have been invaluable to me as a new rider! I've just been released from my Hi-Vis Vest (VIC) and got my restricted license. Now I'm left wanting more riding, and keen to start riding to work. I wasn't into the whole top box thing when I was first looking at buying, even turned down a bike with a top box while looking , but I've come to realise that it would be one of the best/easiest/most practical ways of me leaving my gear with my bike (no option to take it in to work). I have a 2008 GS500F, and have found a 39 litre top box on Ebay for cheap (budget is the key!), but need options for how to mount this to my bike. It comes with a mounting plate that I'm confident I can adapt to fit on some sort of rack, but am finding it hard to source anything without hefty price tags. Also, being on my restricted license for years to come, I wont be carrying a pillion, so am extremely interested if anyone has any solutions for removing the grab handle and replacing it with some sort of rack/mount. Hoping for something like this, Thanks in advance for any help!
