Andries, you get lekker purpose make rucksacks for laptops that double as nifty briefcases. I have one myself. Some are waterproof and 'armoured'.

Imagine the kak if they try to steal a rucksack and end up with a psychopathically angry dwarf (me) attatched to it!  :peepwall:

why would you ride with your topbox unlocked anyways?

do you drive around with your cardoors unlocked? or your boot?
How far does one have to go....a mate of mine in Transkei had his whole trailer stolen off the back of his Toyota 4x4 at a robot ...& did not notice for a good few kms! Shame it had his new twin daughters stuff in it...he reckons about 20k of baby stuff!!!

I'm sorry, but is very funny!

Well top boxes are just plain ugly anyway.  It spoils the whole look of your bike!


Where do you put your laptop when riding?
