Top Box or Big Bag
I've got my BMW R100 GS stripped down, getting it ready for the next BIG Trip.
I'm thinking of adding a nice big top box to the Tesch panniers I already have. On my last trip I used the 89 Litre Ortleib bag - but I'm warming to the idea of getting a nice secure box to bung all the light stuff in. Overland Ernie has converted my GS to a single seater, so the box would sit quite nicely on the rear rack across the panniers - rather than hang off the back.
Is it worth doing - or should I stick to the bag system that seems so popular (but lacks security). I took a Pacsafe wire net with me last time - but it was a bit of a hassle to wrap it around the bag, so I only used it a few times.
Is the Big top box the way to go... The Zega one is big, but expensive...
All comments appreciated.
