    The front cycle rack is great for tie downs in a trailer or hitch rack. Also good for lifting the front end of the bike. But for carrying things? Yeah not much.

    I took the front and rear cycle racks off my bike when I bought it because they were just TOO big. The rear rack bars got in the way of my legs.

    If you just have to have a front rack, something like this would work better for the headlight.





    Ebay Dualsportracks



    Not my listing just another idea.

    Yeah Monster, that high rack looks like something you could actually put a bag on if you really, really needed the cargo room. After you've used every other square inch of the bike to hang bags from.



    As far as holding the incidentals, I just ordered a Kriega Stash. The PO installed a crossbar on the handlebars. I guess that's what you'd call it. I'm new to this whole off-road thing. Anyway, the back of the Stash has a wide belt loop so I'll just lift one side of the crossbar and slide the Stash onto it. I won't keep any real valuables in it so it doesn't have to go with me when I get off the bike and it doesn't have to be 100% waterproof. I can spray it down with silicone so it'll be pretty darn resistant and that's good enough. I'll put the papers in a ziplock.



    As far as the rear rack is concerned, I'm starting to lean toward the Cyclerack. The Medium Motofizz Seat Bag will fit well on it. If I go that route I'll probably go ahead and get the side bag supports. They're simple, relatively cheap, and very easy to mount and remove. (They may even fit on some other brands.) I may never need them but who knows...



    I'm in no hurry. The mirrors and turn signals will come on the UPS truck tomorrow. I'm still not ready for the road.

    +1 on the Cyclerack. The rack stems bolting onto the rear peg mounts is what sold me. Loading up the rack weights the bike more like a passenger vs. the OEM rack. Much more stable handling.

    Really like the Cycle-Rack but since I already fabricated a set-up for my sidebags it seemed that I needed to build my own rack. It is designed to be 'quickly' removable, but all the connectors for my electronics really slow that process down. Here is what I moved toward (I have a wire welder). Gerry



    Take care my Friend.........

    I have the one from Yamaha. just the right size for me and I attached a tool box to carry things. But it came with the bike so not sure if I would have bought it. But I like it!

    I have the cycle rack and really like it. It is well worth the money. In fact while moving up to alaska this summer our 2 place snowmobile trailer flipped on the cassiar highway through canada. I had the bike mounted between the snowgos and the cycle rack was holding the trailer up off both the sleds and basically not only saved the rear end of my bike but also the sleds. Cycle rack is the way to go.

    Hi, after much thought I'm about ready to order the rear Cycle Rack. The only thing holding me back is: it looks like the wide berth would make any unfortunate extra passenger suffer extreme pain in their legs. Don at Cycle Racks assured me this is not the case and that it actually makes a passenger feel more secure (I guess it gives him or her something to hang on to.



    Anybody with any direct experience or opinions on this?



    Thanks a lot - Richard
