I am quite curious to see how the Metal Mule panniers turn out for the 690E. Hope all is preceding well ... I have always admired the MM luggage systems as being tops in quality in fit, design and finish. Pricey, perhaps, but you get what you pay for!

I bought a KTM 690E luggage rack but have decided I am more interested in the metal mule stuff. The darn KTM one was backordered for so long I forgot I had it on order

I'll send it to you for $200+shipping.

Touratech: luggage and more.

The usual "Teutonic" look, but these pages make me feel that the 690 E is here to stay...

I heard they were coming out with some kind of quick release attachment. I would be interested in how that works.

Well.. that's the thing. I have an Alu-Rack for my bike (Yamaha xt660r). In order to install it, i had to replace the standard passenger grab handles with the one supplied in the Alu-Rack package. If that's the case with the KTM 690 Alu-Rack... will the replacement passanger grab handles work with the standard KTM Panniers Rack !?!?

Thanks, Alex

Hey Dan - did MM just do pannier racks or did they make a topbox holder as well?
