Wicked Rear rack on a TA



My Pelican 1400 top box and custom AL rack. Keeps my TP nice and dry and allows me to strap an Elk to the top!

Modrover,
Did you attach your Pelican using clevis pins, as others have done, or did you come up with something else? I'd like to have one on the Givi rack when the trunks not in use, but it'd have to be quickly removeable .

Wicked Ludlow.....

I actually drilled (and sealed) thru the box in the exact loctions of the threaded holes in the rack sides. I removed the old rack top and used the same bolts to bolt down the box. I really like having a permanent storage box for things. I then made my own AL top rack so that I didn't loose any cargo carrying space. It works for me. I'm not really into side boxes/bags and would probably just use a big ass dry bag on the pillion seat for my gear if going on a trip (makes a little back rest).

Regards,
Michael

OK, here's my '90 Trans Alp. Not too many modifications here:

- Givi crash bars (they really work!)
- Dual star heated grips
- Givi top case and mounting plate
- Outlet for heated vest
- piece of 1/4" red oak plywood under the seat to protect the CDI, maybe.

Since this picture, I've built a little frame over the exhaust to keep the saddlbags off. I haven't tested it yet, though.

BTW, has anyone noticed that there are three Transalps on the cover of the latest Aerostich catalog?

Yes, I did notice. Two guys with white ones and a woman on that moonstone color. Must say... the white and red TAs really outshine the moonstone. The trip colors are like a brownish tan? Ugh! Well, at least it's a TransAlp!

RAM GPS Mount. This is a great system and it's super easy to swap my GPS from my TA to NX to 4runner.

Wicked Yes Yes YES!

That's it! Stuff like that can keep us on the "front page!"

I use a Garmin eTrex Vista on my TA. I like it, but it'd be nice to have a larger color screen. Hmm... Well, I think I'd probably break one of those if I had one... I'll stick with my little Vista model.

Michael

I really like my GPS12map. It's a little tank. I use fancier color models for work but prefer the 12map for trail riding, hiking, and 4wheeling.

I'll post a pic of my mudflap extension mod as soon as I snap a pic.

Talking Great...

Yeah, I agree... a smaller simpler GPS is sometimes the better way to go.

Well, I just sold my beloved KL250G7. I'm thinking that I want to get another TransAlp to replace her. I know... why two TransAlp bikes? Because I like them for my style of riding. If any TA people know of one (not any ebay TA stuff... that's no way to buy a motorcycle!) for sale... feel free to pass the info. on to me. Thank you.

Regards,
Michael

Modrover.....were you able to test the clearview windscreen with the nylon spacers yet? Curious to know if it straightens out the air flow on that swept back screen design. Did it make any difference if you put some weather strip in on the sides? I've been too busy to mess with my 'alp this week.

Nope. I haven't really had the time to ride it with the spacers yet. I will for sure inform you, in this Thread, when I do.

Wink That's the spirit!

Your Mate there has one nice looking devil tape job!

I'd do the same to mine if I was doing a mountain pass exploration or something. Remove all the fairing stuff... then you won't break it AND it's a lot lighter.

You could add a XL600R light, instruments, and spoiler to the TA and make it look like the XLV750. I've seen that done before somewhere . . .
