Yup!Long slide at about 60mph....that's why there's a pipe cover and teflon strips on the side panelsIt's all part of the "frequent slidder club" .On the other hand the rack proved to be sturdy enough.

Yep, trimmed the front fender down.

The racks are robust. They stand up well to rough trails and can handle being dropped. The soft bags are left over from my previous street bike but work pretty good and are easy to take on and off.

These nifty kolpin fuel cans mount to them nicely as well. (Also available from Turbo City - no connection, they just have good stuff.)

Really liking that Turbo City rack.

Here's the custom made rack (previous owner) on my XR600R which is going to pretend to be a 650L for this thread ;)





I'll be using soft panniers from my sportsbike on it and will be modifying the rack on the right hand side. At the moment it's perfectly positioned to shred the back of your knee as you kick start it.

This is the set-up I made for my Franken XR- my attempt to make an XRL before Honda made the XRL.... Its an 86 XR600 with XL600 engine and electrics, and a CR250 front end- plus all manner of other bits. It worked really well and I'm sorta sad I sold it.

At any rate:

Here's the system that came with my XR600R that I bought from fellow Advrider Forrestbault. It's a good system. He gets all the credit- I'm just showing it.
