I want to know if that top box (tail box, trunk, tour box) he got is big enough to secure a full face modular helmet, and if so, where did he get it?

How does he even get on this bike? Looks like the top box sits on the passenger seat and there's some kind of backrest/seat fastened to the front of it that would occupy the space over the solo seat. Normally a top box would be mounted much further back even on a bigger bike.

He could mount them on the rack atop the back case, and power them with the generator he'll need for the audio system!

Here's a guy who does a fairly decent job on the bike, and then ruins it by welding a wrench on to the shifter spline thus preventing ever being able to remove that cover behind it for service.


"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

Here's a typical example of facebook stupidity: the answer was listed not once at the very beginning but a second time at the very end, and the first question is...



Exactly what did Captain Dumas (you remember those commercials, right? ) read if he missed both the very beginning and the very end?

I can't decide which is worse: bragging about the lacking ingenuity of unbolting the fenders or someone else of equally lacking intelligence claiming that it looks like "mint" condition?

From the Online Slang Dictionary:
mint
adjective
attractive, usually applying to a male.
That guy is mint.

very good, excellent; "cool"; "awesome".
Those new shoes are mint!

in brand-new condition, in reference to collectibles.
The 100-year old book was surprisingly mint.

I guess I'm not hip to the modern slang. As a comic book collector, obviously there was the real world definition I interpreted it for.
