Re: Question about installing Luggage Rack
I keep going back and forth between the rack (I call it topless) and the top case. Personally, I think the bike looks better with the factory top case and I really do like having the easily accessibility of extra storage for daily use and travel. The storage available for longer trips is easier with the top case and keeps the bike looking better without items tied to the seat and back rack.
BUT - and a big BUT, I love the way the bike handles without the top case! It just doesn't seem like the same bike. I've got a handy storage bag that I can attach to the back rack, but it's just not as convenient as the top case.
So, I continue to go back and forth....... topless or not, The switch is easy, takes about 15 minutes, and as I get tired of one, I just go back..... In my mind, the perfect solution would be a rack with a quick top case attachment. No straps or bungees, but one that would clip on with a solid attachment.
