Same problem in Canada. Parts Unlimited many times has an "exclusive" distributorship from certain manufacturers and mark shit up 200% . . . Of course, if we take a ride down to the US (Good Idea!) for a week, can bring back $750 of stuff bought at the right price and no 12% SALES TAX. I've heard some people even go down and get stuff at the right price, install it on their bikes and just ride back and lie to the border person. Now, this is illegal and I don't condone that, but apparently it happens.

And people wonder why I moved to the USA! I always get sticker shock when I go home!

Lookin pretty bad ass, now just figure out a way to keep those pannier lids attached with the front wheel reaching for the sky and you are all set! Or just pay for me to ride RTW behind you to pick them up!

changing my plans a bit....

but first... better pictures... lol



now... who wants to buy my holans panniers?!?

left side... never fallen



comes with pro rally brackets...





fallen side... little bent... but holds true and doesnt leak... just crooked... 10mph MAYBE fall...





with liners...



how they look mounted



going with the top loader pelicans... seem to be the better way to go for my type of riding... but that does mean for fabbing on the holan rack to make them fit...

Hi,

Great bike by the way!
I have the Holan Pannier racks on my bike.
How do you find getting the centre stand down with the rack mounting on the pillion pegs.
I find it near impossible with my riding boots on to get enough purchase on the centre stand.
If you have fixed the problem please let me know.
