    you could glue (sikaflex) and screw a frame to the roof and fix the box to that but the frame would be permenent.

    the drag produced by a top box is quite considerable and will affect your fuel consumption..could you not fit a back box ?

    perhaps a removable box on a fiamma bike rack at the back.

    the rack would fold up when not in use.
