I was envious of all that space I'm missing out on by not having a trunk, so I decided to install one!

I was particularly interested in the VIP trunk that use2be has so I checked Amazon and eBay for one. Unfortunately, neither would ship to Hawaii (One of the many cons of living off of the mainland.) The only one I found, that was available through Amazon prime and didn't offend my eyes, was the Autoinbox motorcycle trunk.

It's definitely not my top choice. I would have preferred a gloss black hardcase that matched the black of my Valkyrie, but beggers can't be choosers. Also it isn't rock solid but at $112 what can you really expect.

I had to drill two holes in the mounting plate to match the Honda luggage rack but it was a pretty easy install overall. I still have to tap in to the brake lights as well, but I am currently trying to decide between having running lights or brake lights as I can't have both with this trunk.

I hope some of you can chime in on what's better. I am leaning towards running lights as I feared being rear ended by a speeder at night. Also, if anyone can chime in on where you guys tapped in from. I haven't actually taken a look, but I'm sure there are wires I can tap in to under the seat.

Haha me too. Don't tell my wife though.

The bags are from Corbin. Very expensive and lacking in cargo capacity, but definitely the most stylish for our bikes.

Thankfully they came with the bike 👍

I was considering a trunk too. Maybe the Viking leather trunk to go with my leather bags.. Hard to find...

RW, those brackets on Vaders trunk are similar to what comes with the Viking trunk. they are 2 pair of sliders w/bigass bolts and nuts.
