Looks great Are those after market triple clamps?

Would be a little worried about all that weight on the tail, even with the re-inforced extension...

Hey mike - they are Holan frames, but for the GSA panniers. They've been great - they give the subframe some extra strength, the panniers give a flat platform across the rear seat to take the load of a big holdall (rather than just the made up butter tail rack!), and offer protection in falls and something to grab when pulling the bike out of a sticky situation - DAMHIK!

I think it looks good with the GSA panniers:

Yeah looks good mav. Im looking to use the zega 31 litre as I dont carry much and I think its 31 + 38 so that gives 69 litres of space which will be ample and I think the holans will take the zega panniers. I usually use soft bags but im intending on going up the road a bit further. Hey check out the centralasiarally.com it would be great to have a hp2e team. At this stage its me only :)

I am running the Holan rack as well but with Zega cases and I am very happy with the setup. I did an upgrade though by contacting Touratech and buying the hardware kit for their pannier racks which contain two more support braces. Not a direct bolt on but only minor mods were needed to make it work, it was mainly for piece of mind.

That would be awesome but not likely, I will check it out though.

After looking at the route that would be a great ride through places I want to see from a bike someday!!!

Those are the Wunderlich billit triple clamps. This was the Wunderlich demo bike and it came dripping with all their hardware. I have removed much of the extra hardware. The triple clamps look nice but they don't work very good. The design limits lock to lock turning radius. I had to machine pockets in the bottom piece to clear the frame and make it turn. The top clamp doesn't stay tight, another design fault. Stick with the stock pieces!
