It looks to be about 9 inches between the mounting brackets. I'm in SLC too if you
need to look at it.

Thanks Pluric.... The bike is a late '80's BMW k100-I only have about 5.5 inches between fork tubes(might work). Looks like plan B. By the way ,we may have an old friend in common . Stan Zedek?

thanks again for the effort.

Imitation and flattery and all that. Simple and rock solid. Stabilized the wind screen and the GPS and all that fun stuff.

About 6 inches between the lower fork tubes. (More in my range. The 9 inch was quite a stretch)

Stan? Maybe, I only have two kids and struggle remembering their names.

Testing if anything bursts into flames or melts on the plate. You should see them if you are loading it down in sand.

Have you ever seen a bunch of big bikes working hard through sand at night.?

Very pretty. Same as disk brakes working hard at night.


You just don't notice it in daylight.

So not to be taken out of context, maybe call them side bags and trunk.

I have to admit at first I thought "That's just a little too much information"
Then I noticed the nice looking Tenere with the raven luggage and it
all came together.
