And does this involuntary opening ever happen when it is locked - or only when latched and unlocked?


I rode to to airport at 5:30 am at, shall we say, "freeway speeds" and didn't lose any of my non-serialized, unmarked bills or classified documents from my iconic, and locked, 22L top case.


And it's such an easy on/off that I will probably never ride with it empty.


All that said... forewarned is forearmed. So I will select or procure an appropriate boingy strap. I have nice, color-matching blue cargo net... Gotta look good...

No doubt about that happening, Scud. Additional strapping or latching is recommended.

+1... locked or not is no matter for the 22.

I do however recommend keeping at least 1 of the 2 tragkorb locks locked. As they, especially the rear one, have a tendency to work themselves open. Which only dumps your contents and looks really funny until that little nylon strap comes un-snapped. You then get to join the "deep gouges and severe scratches on the TOP of my tragkorb" club... if you don't lose the outside half all together. Again, the hinge is the weak link in that design as well.
