As mentioned earlier, the trunk is removable, and the process is straightforward and will not take more than maybe 20 minutes.
Once you removed the trunk you may want to consider the following options:
- leave the bike as is. There is a black plastic cover under the trunk that will lend the bike a somewhat finished look without the trunk.
- buy a Ft.Worth rack (available from BMW dealers, among others). This will give the bike a real neat, finished look, especially if you also buy the optional grab rail. The rack/rail combo goes for about $390)
With the above 2 options you'll still keep the passenger seat.
- if you're prepared to shell out roughly $900, you can buy a Corbin Smuggler (see the Corbin web site for details). This is a custom replacement trunk and will lend the bike a sporty look. This will claim the space that the passenger seat occupies so this is only for solo riders (unless you want to move back and force between the Corbin, and the stock trunk).
There are also some pics on this forum of LTs with Corbin Smuggler installed.
