    Goods news for anyone like me who has a 2018 Speedie RS and needs a top case. SW-Motech now has a Street Rack that fits the 2018-19 RS.

    https://sw-motech.com/en/products/luggage/luggage+racks/STREET-RACK/4052572055281.htm

    Here is the States, Twisted Throttle has just added it to their catalog.

    I know a top case on a ST offends some of you, but for a daily commuter like me convenience supersedes aesthetics. Now I am only waiting for a three to one low boy exhaust for the RS and I will be content (for at least a little while).

    I'd love to see some pics when you've got it all setup. One with and without the case.

    Presently I commute with an Oigo Mach 5 as it fits what I need + work laptop but I like options/ideas.

    Ignore the gits that think your bike is their bike...

    Your wish is my command. I should get it in 4 weeks or so. I'll post before and after photos.

    Top cases (Topboxes) are butt ugly but soooooo handy.
    Fit one when reg'd & laugh at your mates with their stuff in plastic bags held on with bungee cords.
    Then remove it when not required :)

    Would love to see some pics .... I have previously strapped a dry-bag onto the pillion seat on my naked bikes but for a longer trip and stability I could be tempted with something like this and remove it for the other 90% of the time

    I'm only offended because I have to wait 4 damn weeks to see pics!

    The good thing about SW-Motech racks is that after removing the box and the top plate the 'rack' portion and the rest of the permanent fixtures are reasonably small and unobtrusive.

    I do like a top box, pig ugly but soooo useful.

    However I just can’t bring myself to fit one on my ST, just seems wrong.

    Smug Honda NC owners have a frunk which removes all need for a top box - it will take a large Shoei helmet.
