When you have time, would you mind posting a few pics of the racks? Maybe a few close-ups of the mounting points too? Would like to have a set made for my TE.👍

Sure, but will probably only be able to do so over the weekend.  :thumleft:

Here's the bike as she is in the meantime...

Ja, got the luggage racks with. They won't fit other bikes so was pointless for him to keep.

I'm fitting a topbox for my daily 3km commute in town. Just makes life easier. Stick my laptop in and can lock up my helmet when I get there. Will remove it for travel and playtime...

Be careful of a topbox without reinforcing the rear subframe. You need to go look at threads on Cafe Husky website.  :thumleft:

I had the same issue with my 9fiddy, so I'm well aware of the limitations. I think it's when guys start doing more offroad traveling with loaded rear ends that it becomes an issue. If I behave myself in town and don't pack too many milk cartons into the back, I guess it'll be OK?

Like most top boxes it is the loaded lever (whip) effect that damages. I will try and take a pic of how I reinforced and braced my rear frame under the back mudguard by addicting some angled aluminium flat bar riveted in place. I have not gone the gusset route as I use Giant Loop bags that rest mostly on the seat.

Sweet, pics would be great. I had issues with my KTM 450 and the 950 subframes. It seems to be a generic issue with large enduro or DS bikes...

Ja many suffer from it - essentially that is where weight is saved by making them out of alu only ever meant to hold a mudguard.

Very convenient for the daily commute or the "bread & milk run", but not something I'd use on trips...

This is one of the best mid size adv bikes out there - it is not really designed as a fooking commuter or shop run bike. Those in the know know, the others are ignorant. Archangel enjoy and lap up some gravel travel.

BiG DoM, he is referring to the TOP BOX, not the bike!!!

Sorry sorry - pulled the trigger too quickly  :biggrin: Over defensive of my Italian girlfriend  >:D  Look the topbox is not something I would do to her ... she remains svelt with a tight ass.  :lol8:

Congrats Gabriel.

Baie mooi Hussy.  Hoop jy het baie veilige kilometers.

My hart kom affie plaas, Waar die Wind en die Son en die Stilte my speelmaats was.

Everybody falls off. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't.

Look, I don't like slapping a topbox on what I deem to be an enduro bike, but I don't have the luxury of having more than one bike at the moment, so this'll have to do.  :-\

This tight ass Italian also has to cook and clean.  :biggrin:

In defence of the topbox, it's realy easy to remove, which then leaves me with the actual reason why I bought the husky and not a 650GS or XR650L.  :thumleft:

All good mate and I certainly understand. I had a GS 650 top box permanently bolted to my 1200 ADV.  :thumleft:

So did the right thing, removed the topbox and ate up some of of Table Mountain's gravel footpaths, bike paths and maintenance roads...  :ricky:

Didn't stop enough to take more than this one set of pics. But I just wanted to prove that she won't be under house arrest.  ;)
