Can the seat be removed with the rack in that position?

reports from OZ, where Mitas is one of the biggest tire brands, is atleast the same and some say more.

most tires have a few cracks and such atleast the long mileage ones. every time i run a mefo explorer a get a few yet it's a non issue.

really? i call BS.
every report i've seen is the E07 yields very high mileage for a 50/50

http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...899#post293533

yes it's a 130-17" not a 150-17" but this guy got over 18,000 miles before showing cord on his.
yeah that a low mileage tire if i've ever seen one.

One benefit of the Touratech back plate is that the tie down loops are bent down somewhat, so if you have a case on top you can still get your tie down straps hooked in there.

Im just telling you what ive heard. I never said i know first hand. Replacing tires when the cord shows is replacing a tire way to late. Also how many miles are being ridden on tarmac and how much off road? It all makes a difference.

Well, after 23 days, my Givi luggage racks arrived from Cli-Max. Can't beat the price, $113.84 + $15 shipping. Can't find them for under $206.00 anywhere else.

That's a good price on some very nice racks. Lots of options for side cases with them.

Other than the Givi-branded cases, such as the Trekker series, E360, etc., do any other manufacturers produce bags -- hard side or soft -- that mount up on a Givi Monokey rack?

I like the look of the TRK33/TRK46 but just want to know what my options are.

I've had the PLR6401 rack set up installed, but no Tiger-specific cases yet.

Pelican cases, Most soft bags and I think there is an adapter at Twisted throttle for Trax cases.

The racks were so easy to install even I could do it. Everyone that sells them has pictures on their site. Try Cli-Max, Revzilla etc. I put the Wolfman Summits on there and they work very well. It's a great setup because they install with a key device and you can remove or replace them in seconds. Again, Cli-Max has a price that is kind of hard to believe compared with the rest. Thanks Yossarian for turning me on to that deal!

(I have nothing to do with any retail moto dealers!)
