Knifemaker The basic problem with the Vulcan...most top boxes open toward the front of the bike, so the "sissy bar" on the seat prevents it from opening if it's pushed back.
I've seen cases that don't do this, but almost all do. Building up something to make it sit higher would help, but I think the best solution is to trash the stock seat for something else.

Just finding a suitable box with a shallow lid like this would work:

Or a ice chest with a latched top. I had a bike with a milk crate on the back for awhile. A few small bungee cords to help hold stuff in.
You could also build a box with a lid if you have the tools.....

Assuming you can’t move it back because it’ll hit the back rest. That’s my issue. That’s why I thought about trying to add to the luggage rack. It’s holding up so far though

mmart That is priceless, I can’t talk because I wasn’t too far off from that when my case broke lol. I was about 60 miles from home. I had a cargo net and bungee cords holding the damn thing on. My buddy stayed about 30 yds behind me on the way back to make sure he wouldn’t get wiped out if it decided to jettison along the way

The first one I bought that broke is now my official motorcycle junk bin in the basement. I’m happy with this new one.

Nice Bonnie there KM, I’m a Triumph fan myself
