Removed the Trunk from my 05 LT the other day and was amazed how much better balanced the bike seemed to be. It seems to be much less "top heavy" . I decided to leave the Trunk off for now, and installed the luggage rack (existing on Trunk Top) to replace the Trunk. I think it looks more finished with the Rack installed, and I like the Kisan brake flasher kit on the LED bar attached to the rack.
Will post pictures if anyone is interested.
