I really don't need the removable racks (once they get mounted, they're staying there) but if it's a better alternative to the Happy Trails racks, I'm all for it!
The racks and attachments are solid enough. Seems to me that when I was looking the SW tubes were thicker.

I have the boxes bolted (6mm x 30mm) straight to the racks, using 5 of the SW-Motech rack holes. There are 2" fender washers on the inside under the bolt heads and fiber locking nuts. There are also rubber washers between the boxes and rack faces. All hardware is stainless of course.

Removal is releasing each of the big quarter turn fasteners and only the little tabs remain with the bike. Oh and the cross bar by the license plate.

Somebody else asked about whether there would be black on their things from rubbing bare aluminum in the boxes. The answer is no, the inside of each box is also the black powder coating.

Yes I admit it - I slaved over it for a couple of hours before taking the pics. I figure it might be the last time it will ever be that clean! I need to be more like Wasp - I still can't believe how he's able to keep his so pristine - but after putting the effort into cleaning, makes me not want to ride dirt. And I can't have that...

That's just wrong, and is an excellent example of why cleaning is bad. I did rinse mine off the other day. To dry it I took it on a 25 mile dirt road ride, then put it away. I think it was still cleaner than before I rinsed it, but not sure.

This is my little routine...

Ride basic clean, Ride, Basic clean.

Every three months...Clean and poilish, fluids if needed and they bloody well should be.

Middle of winter, detail, fix, tune farkle ready for the new year. Which is why I am wary of the B brand. Would it make the whole year?

And I think WASP just uses 10,000psi water jets and has robots in service.

My cleaning routine? Ride in the rain.....only if I have to. Fluids? Yeah, keep them topped off at all times. I've found black not only does dirt better & is faster,it reminds me of dirt ,that is, it looks like it. Very pleasent to the eye. Less stressful to the clean types too.

Yabut, a through cleaning helps find loose stuff, missing nuts, hanging parts,
flapping crap and I've read it's a bonding experience for some sickos.

Personally I know I enjoy a good sponge bath from a gal in a nurses outfit.
