The video is a must. Had me smiling all the way through, and I almost burst out laughing in the last 20s.
Such a useful bit of kit. How would he have manage without, it I don't know:

I don't get it?  :-[

Why not just have a normal top box to put the brief case in and then take it out when you travel -  :-[ :-X

But of course...……..there is no weight restriction for carry on luggage in a private jet  8)

You have obviously never tried to put a 17” laptop in a 'normal' topbox, or a briefcase that will hold a 17” laptop in there either.

Full sized briefcase gets swallowed by the K1600GTLE top box - and...………...it doubles as a private jet!  ;D

Ah, I see. That looks like a small 'executive' briefcase but that could be because it is in a cavernous black hole...

My 'regular' briefcase was (still is but isn't in current use) 500mm x 380mm x 140mm.

However, either way, the pain of having to live with a bike as big as my car means that your topbox is a total non-starter and anyway, it really isn't the sort of thing I would want to carry through an international airport every couple of days just to get my laptop, files, fresh shirts, socks and duty-free on board.

The perfect target audience:
https://www.pemc.co.uk/index.htm

If you know what PEMC stands for, you may chuckle.  If you don't you may struggle to find it - it's well-hidden.

If nothing else, marvel at the quality of the website. It is a little window into the past.
Matt probably won't be able to sleep after viewing it.

Haha I made it about 5 seconds and auto closed it on principle!

We ride K , there is no place for such bags, on the other hand should admit that videos are most amusing
