You are very welcome!!
Fun story to tell, and I DID tell it on my Vendor's thread
I was happy with hard bags for 3-4 years until my riding progressed into "aggressive"
You saw my welded subframe the night before we left for the KTM Rally, right?
I need another option also.
The whoops I bounce over at speed now bend/break the racks again and again.
I went KLR and strapped two big 6" pvc tubes (20" long) down low on my Jesse racks,
and am now seriously considering the Great Basin as well.
No two-up for me, though.
Have you seen the new 2013 GL Fort Rock?
Designed to sit on top and fit a passenger?
It's very large, and looks the ticket to sit atop hard or soft panniers.
On phone now, or I'd provide a link..
