I ordered the Shad Top-Mount rack adapter (required) from Shad directly because classiccruiser.com didn't offer it. Angie (amaya@shadusa_dot_com) at SHAD was excellent. She saved me 10% because I joined their www.shadusaforum.com site. She also saved me the shipping charges by placing the mounting kit inside the topcase and shipping it all together.
The mounting hardware installs easily in about 30 minutes and feels VERY solid. The top case is so spacious, I love it. I especially like the "keyless" lock allowing you access to the case without the use of the key every time you need something. The gloss black is a 99% perfect match to my 2008 factory paint.
I've had the top case on for about 200 miles now and have not behaved as I should, touching triple digit speeds momentarily more than once. I didn't mean to, it just happened. Thankfully the top case is still there. I'm going up to the NC/TN border in a couple of weeks to ride the Blue Ridge, Smokey Mtn National and the Dragon. It will be nice to be able to bring all my crap with me. It's like I have an SUV on 2 wheels now.
