    LOL! I typed that on the way to bed. Guess the 'ol fingers weren't cooperating. Nice catch.

    Looks good. Gives me an idea to do something similar. How did it fit on your bike? I keep reading reviews about it being loose on the bike and a cheap feel to it. Just curious.

    The top piece is a little loose yes.

    I'd like to get one of those as well, but use my OEM cubby too.

    I do have a question for others though; do you worry about sticking electronics (such as an I-Phone or a GPS) in the cubby for temporary storage? I find that things get really warm in there from the engine heat after you have come off the bike from a long run...
    Will, I use the cubby for my wallet, keys, and occasionally phone. I do find it gets warm, but, based on what I've observed, it is nothing to worry about.

    Your iPhone will let you know if it is too hot...it will give you a warning on the screen that it is overheating, and will shut itself off eventually.

    I have the black one also and didn't like how loose it sits in there. So after much finagling about trying to find the right size weather strip or something to firm up the top, I ended up taking some foam and putting it under the whole cubby. It raised it up about 1/2" and now it's solid. Granted, there's a gap around it if you look, but no one has said anything yet.

    I bought it just for the cup holder. Nice to have a bottle of water secure enough to open and not swinging around on the bars.
