Top box luggage rack
« on: August 02, 2014, 05:08:46 am »
 I'm thinking of adding a bit of extra luggage capacity to the TTSE and I'm considering buying a luggage rack to fit on top of the top box.   

Has anyone already done this and if so which rack did you go for. 

I am aware that we should keep weight and centre of gravity low but the wife wants to bring more than one pair of pants.   :020:

I did this very thing about 10 years ago when riding my K1200LT 2 up a lot. I then taught my wife how to pack light and I have had no need for the extra space ever since. :)

I have this givi rack fitted to my TTSE , The only problem is when strapping down there is not much space between the outer of the top box and the underside of the rack, There are other options on racks see the links from other members :152:
It dos work very well I use a 30lt bag which also has Velcro straps but I only try to pack light bulky items in it :047:
