Snap! To Podders bike that is lol.  For me I have to take the top box off to access the lock but I can get the key through the rack (after some mods to the rack with the help of a craft knife and a dremel!) and they come off as one unit.



Brilliant!
An added bonus of this set up is that you don't get any crap flung on the back of your jacket,especially if you have a tail tidy fitted.

I did the same Headfox, just cut a hole in the base plate so I can access the seat lock.

I bought a cheap ebay pillion seat to drill into...only 34 and it includes the lock and key..

Funnily enough a tail tidy just arrived in the post today!  The only reason I'm getting one is because I want to have a action camera mounted so it's facing backwards and the number plate is getting in the way of the view!

I'm not looking forward to getting covered in crap on the days I'm not using the top box (the rack is attached to a spare seat, like Podders also mentions).  I'd love to have a "full" mudguard that reached covered the whole of the top half of the tyre....

By the way having the top box on makes it more difficult to get on and off the bike, I'm not going to lie!  I find it easiest to grip the handlebars with both hands and use the right footpeg as a step when getting on and off the bike.

True! Its a bit awkward especially with the slightly higher comfort seat fitted..Have you done many miles with the box fitted? No issues?

Only done the short-ish journey earlier this week and I wont be repeating that now we have alternative plans in place.

I only did about 50 miles with it on to make sure it didn't fly off :001: It was fine but I've not filled it up and used it properly yet.  I was hoping to use it on a trip to France in May for the Le Mans MotoGP but I guess that won't be happening now.  Hopefully the travel restrictions will be lifted by then and I might still get over there.

I was hoping to get over in June but i've cancelled my trip, fingers crossed for yours...
