About time this was made, is needed for the Trax box on anything but tar IMHO.

As far as I know, they are brand-specific.
There are Trax support brackets available.

not correct.

Many, many riders use TOP boxes off-road - Motorradical, BMW OEM (aluminium boxes), etc.

they have stainless steel racks, with stainless steel bobbins, and are well capable of serious off-road work, when not over-loaded.

Have a customer (and off-road tour operator) who does in excess of off-road 20,000 km per year - no problem whatsoever.

Plastic boxes have no place off-road.

The bracket of my Trax Top box also started to tear by the holes where the bracket is bolted to the bike. I took the bobbins of the bracket and used the bracket as a template to drill holes in my soft luggage plate to fit the bobbins on witch the topbox secures on. Now I have a sturdy bracket for my top box and a easy conversion if I want to use soft luggage.
