Today, while riding to work and going thru the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan I noticed a strange noise coming from my top case of my 200GL. It was also vibrating a lot! I though It was my extra helmet doing all this noise. When I got to work, I checked the top case and to my surprise, the two "things"(don't know the name) that holds the top case to the rear rack have broken off due to the vibration. It even broke part of the steel rear rack. The type of material used to hold the top case is made of a really shitty composite as well as the material used for the rear rack. To pay almost $300.00 for a top case that breaks up like this I think that, IT SUCKS!!!. Vespa should have come up with a stronger material for the money. I took the top case off (it looks like crap) until I can figure it out how to make a plate that will hold the top case to the rear rack from the bottom because I don't not want to lose it. I certainly cannot afford to pay almost $300.00 for a new one. Have this happened to anyone out here? Any suggestions? If I can get this attachment thing fix I'll post some pictures.

Piaggio Topcase
The same thing happened to mine, and I was equally aggravated. Broke the case and the rack. I pitched it and bought a Givi. It's less expensive, and my personal experience indicates that it's a better product. You can read more about it at this thread:
