    Luggage rack on Side Cases by Tralex

    Hello guys.
    I have designed some luggage racks to place on the side cases.
    I put the link to the videos where you can see them.
    There are no modifications to be made to the suitcases, and they are placed in seconds. The suitcases keep all their function with them on.

    It's a clever idea.  I would be concerned about the additional weight loading though.

    Absolutely nothing happens, it is a motorcycle with a lot of power and with the suspensions to 2 helmets it gets along well, no strange movements in the condition or anything like that.

    Last year we did about 12,000 kilometers loaded as seen in the photo and also my lady also climbed on the motorcycle and as if nothing.

    Just to be clear, my concern with weight is the weight of the luggage people would be tempted to carry, rather than the weight of the rack itself.

    Each luggage rack weighs exactly 1 kg.
    It is clear that the weight that they can support is the one that the suitcase supports can support since the limit is in the suitcase's anchorages, not in the luggage rack.
    The main function is to carry bulky but light objects such as sleeping bags or clothes.

    Thanks Tralex - that was my reason for asking too.  :028:

    Each Pannier has a Maximum Load of 10Kg :



    With the Luggage Rack fitted this would reduce the maximum load that can be carried
    inside the Pannier, and on the Rack combined to 9Kg - which is still a good amount,
    and would certainly help for carrying Sleeping bags etc that are bulky but light in weight.

    The main thing would be not to overload the weight carried,
    as the Pannier hangers are only made of plastic,
    and would be expensive to replace if they broke ! 

    Cheers  :821:
