In this daily grinding commute I have become more and more convinced that I needed a top box. I have something in mind that I feel would work, but I'm unsure about it. I tend to over think things, worrying and worrying about something till I actually do it. Then I wonder why I didn't do this before.

I need to take my lunch to work and a place to store my jacket, helmet, rain gear and maybe a pull-over (during those chilly 1 AM rides home from work). Well I can certainly continue to walk into work with my full gear on, it's just easier to store it on the bike.
Recently I've been looking at a Emgo Travel Trunk. The one that I'm considering measures 12 in. lengthwise by 16.5 inches wide by 11 inches deep. That should be enough to hold my gear. What concerns me is if it fit on my bike, how will it affect my riding and how stable will it be on Kimmie? I need to take out a tape measure and figure it out.
Assuming it works on my bike, I'll order it later today, install it sometime next week and see what happens.
It will actually stick out over the brake lights and I'm thinking I will need some sort of reflective stickers or tape on the back of the box. The biggest disadvantage to this is the lack of a brake light and I'm wondering if it's possible to get some sort of stick on LED brake lights? I'm paranoid about getting hit from behind.
I guess we will find out. I just ordered the damn thing and should have it early next week.
