Re: Easy popup panniers

Very good points.. The black rail is not a stressed frame and is attached to the rear subframe at 2 points. The only point of that rail, that I can think of, is for a grab point when lifting onto the centre stand... but then they put it on both sides. Maybe to bungee luggage? Tightening the bolts we...

Easy popup panniers

If any of you remember my previous popup with the top box fitted, you’ll know I like simple solutions... couple of holes, couple of spacers, done.. So I was thinking about how to fit panniers with a discreet system. I have a set of Givi E22 boxes on my Harley using the SW-Motech SLC system. This is ...

Re: Eurokat 9

Green Card? Do we need to get a Green Card before the summer? Fossie, when are you next going over, can you test if you get in trouble :roll: without 1 after the end of the month?

Re: Popping across Europe

Final day was a bit of a mixed bag... Quite nice to begin with. Then after an hour or so, the wind picked up. This part of Spain is quite flat, but at an altitude of about 1000m (about 3300ft) After about 150 miles it suddenly goes into a 5% gradient downwards towards Valencia and the coast. South o...

Re: Popping across Europe

Turned out a good run. Just a but cold until lunchtime. Today, however, started with rain. It was supposed to be showers, but it lasted for 2 hours. Cruising speed went up as I just wanted to get away from it. The middle part was quite pleasant. More sparsely populated smooth motorway with nice long...
