I need a set of rear luggage carriers and really like the original ones... I have 2 Africa Twins (2003 RD 07) and ride extensively in South America. I have spent 3 months on the road this year and am presently in Tulua,Colombia. Home is Cuenca ,Ecuador. A trip is planned soon for 2 to 3 months in Brasil.
The luggage carriers give excellent protection to the muffler and rear of the moto. I have made a tool box in stainless steel for the left side and find it excellent for the necessary tools.
Does anyone have a pair of these around I could buy to fit out my second A/T the same way??
Any help much appreciated.
Hello Dave. Sounds like your having a great trip. I'm not familiar with the OEM racks as I have the Touratech racks which I find very robust...almost like a roll cage. Don't know what to suggest other than the Evo-Lock system over at Twisted Throttle. I would like to hear more on your current trip then 2-3 months in Brazil....Wow...that retired life is working out well I can see. Ride safe.

"Almost no other bike has the road presence of the Africa Twin and cars seem to melt out of its way, once they see the angry glare of its lights in their mirrors." ...
