Welcome to the forums!
WEG, sissy bar is bolted on. Thats cool though, that they make a QR one. Im in the market for either a luggage rack or a Hard case trunk.Hi BigMike;
I'm just North of Boston, with a place in FL (bike is there for the Winter). I also have an '09 V1700 Classic. I really enjoy mine as well. I see you have US Saddlebags and a sissy bar (quick release?). Looks good. I'm in the market for new bags. The OEMs are really small. I have the KQR windshield as well as the Kawa engine/crash bar. That's about it for farkles on my bike.
Hopefully I will see you in the Spring when the weather warms up and my bike comes back to NE for the riding season.
Happy New Year!
Thanks WEG. A guy at work turned me on to using a trailer. At first I was thinking "wtf"? But now after researching it, im pretty interested. He showed me one from Harbor Freight. With an online coupon its $322 complete! Now im not sure what to do as, id have to buy a hitch for my bike at another $300+ registration & that puts me into the $750 price range, which is a bit higher than I wanted to spend to fix this problem.Hi BogMike;
I made a mistake. It's JC Whitney, not Penny... Brain cramp. Here is the item from their website. There are others there as
GARAGE PRO UNIVERSAL MOTORCYCLE TRAVEL TRUNKS
Sorry, I dont know why I struggle with inserting links...Hi BigMike
Couldn't open your "choice" but if these things are even close to what they say including reviews, you can always give it to someone with a scooter on campus for a Christmas present! . $18?? I think I have spent more on a fancy beer.
WEG, yes that's the one. My sissy bar is made by Cobra, so the backrest part is bolted on. After researching it, ill have to buy a luggage rack & probably modify the mounting bracket that comes with it.Hi BigMike;
I saw the item you might order (I think it was the right one...) and if it is the one with the "back rest" built in, it probably won't fit with your sissy bar if you are mounting it on the rack behind the sissy bar... you don't want a back rest behind the sissy bar. I figured I would send this to you "just in case"... You probably knew this already.
