Does anyone notice any difference in the stability and handling after the trunk was installed? Maybe it is my imagination or side winds, but on my trip home after installation of the trunk there seemed to be some buffeting. Doing about 65 to 70 mph.

My trunk is actually an Aprilia "New Concept" helmet box painted chips blue -- almost the same as the Atlantic blue of my Atlantic 500. It is installed upon a Givi 76M platform. Since installing it, there seems to be less feeling of wind blowing against my back.
On my Helix, I had an old Vetter trunk installed on a Givi Monorack. It seemed to reduce aerodynamic drag to the extent that my top speed increased about 5mph. In as much as my Aprilia is not broken-in, I can't say how the trunk has affected top speed.
