here is one I've been looking at.  https://www.advmotorrad.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=86_88&product_id=176
Ive emailed them and they normally don't keep the Holan stuff in stock but can get it but the lead time it around 120 days.
I've seen nothing but good reviews on advrider about Holan stuff.

Hey Al...approx 10-12#. $35 at WallyWorld. It has a drawer in bottom for tools, a "makeup tray" for Melony, and a handle to carry it :D

I just bought one of these, USED, so WAY less expensive, but just the box.... Now I need to buy a mounting system, that'll cost more than the box. :-\

I bought a 48 liter Bestem T-Box with brake light and padded lineing for $99 on Amazon. Will hold two helmets and some small items.

Don't you have a luggage rack already.  As long as it doesn't need to pop on and off you should be able to fab something up for next to nothing.
