I'm new to the forum, and anxious to get some help with a question or two. Back in 1978-'80 I had a Yamaha 750 sport bike...loved it, but sold it because I needed money. My current bike is a 2007 model Yamaha V-Star 1300 with touring package (windshield, saddlebags, sissy bar). I bought it in 2012 and it had only 2,200 miles on it. I've added only 2,300 since then, including an 1,100-mile trip from northern Minnesota to Colorado last year. I'm looking forward to a 1,350-mile trip from Colorado to southern Ohio this summer. Wondering about tour packs (hard trunks) for this model. I want something large enough to hold two full-face helmets, with electric tail and/or brake lights, a chrome rack on top, a spoiler with LED lights, and wrapped with leather or vinyl to match my hard saddlebags. Any suggestions on where to find a trunk that meets these criteria? I've tried several online vendors, and even ordered one that turned out to be too small and cheap-looking.

Welcome to the forum from Northwest Illinois. Glad to have you join us and look forward to reading more about you and your bike. Don't know much about the trunks so can't be of much help. Post often and ride safe.

Working on my 'bucket list' and enjoying every minute of it!!
