Not sure here to put this, it is a bit tech stuff. I have found a little thing that is great for the top box of my 1200, people may have thought about this already. It is call a DOT-IT three little battery power LED's that I put inside the lid of the top box when its a bit dark it gives just enough light to see. Now you can get waterproof ones.
Just a little some thing that might help.:waving:

Already got one in the trunk. Handy too.:D

Got a friend that rides a Harley bagger, he's got one too. Said he wasn't about to pay $100 for a light in his trunk.

Great for when you pull over and need to get something out of the trunk area. I got mine at Walmart.Its silver though.

I got a fewGOLD for my GOLDwinglast year.

SUPER little lights!



I've taken one apart & sandpapered the LEDS, diffuses the lighta lot better. Although it's light range is diminished it still does light the area nicely.

I have one but haven't installed it. It fixes with double sided tape, but you have to rip it out of the saddlebag to change the batteries...:baffled:

a lot of these lights come with a back piece that you twist off, the osram one slides one way to release it from its lugs, i have not used them on the bike but have them in the motorhome as a back up to the leisure battery, good stuff

I put velcro on them so I would be able to get to the batteries laterand have them in the saddle bags. I already had a light in the trunk.

My wife overpacks (waaaay over) the bags and as the light of this gizmo is activated by pushing on the bulb assembly, I think this would lead down the road of the 'fridge light conundrum: how can you be sure it's switched off once you close the door?:D

I have the Wing Gear trunk lid organizer and an Energizer Energizer Trim Flex LED clipboard light. The light fits nicely in the side flashlight holders on the organizer, and because it's flexible it works great with the lid up, positioned how I need it for light. Good battery life and adequate light when needed, and very compact so it doesn't take up much space. Only thing that would make it better would be a switch that would automatically turn it off when you close the trunk. :)
