Goldie, is that a SW-motech rear rack or an Altrider? If it is an Altrider, how did you attach the SW-Motech top box to the Altrider rack.

Hold on, this is a road bike right?

I suppose if you squint you could see a road.

This was a road that I was on. This bike just can't go past a road like this without going down it.

Yes, it is an Altrider rear rack

When I bought the SW-Motech I also bought the mounting plate for the TraX but ended up not using it.
Why have a plate mounted on a plate

I really like the Altrider and this is what I did to it







Had to install these spacers because the TraX bags have feet, you can see it on this next photo. The spacers I installed raise it just enough that the feet from the bags sit on the altrider rack with just enough pressure that the whole bag does not move. At the same time, the metal sheet under the Trax that slide into the four spacers does not touch the rack so it won't scratch it.
I've done 6000 miles without any problems.

Gentlemen, Little off topic but how do you guys make those red lines in your posts? I have seen it on other forums also. I am slightly 'puter illiterate but going to be retired soon and wonder. is it a program I buy or what? On my bucket list is to be able to use this laptop to it's full potential not just a glorified typewriter, after spending a lot of time on my new s-10 that is.. Thanks

You mean those red arrows and text in the pics above?

You need a photo editing program, such as Photoshop. If you're using a Windows computer, press START, (bottom left Windows flag icon), then go to ALL PROGRAMS, then click on ACCESSORIES, and under there is a simple program called PAINT. You can then load a file (picture) from the top left icon and then fool around with it, arrows and text and all, then save it. Very simple.

Brother in law and I set out for a day trip, Southern Illinois was the destination. Cave in Rock, Garden of the Gods Shawnee National Forest were what we wanted to see. Leaving TN working the backroads north up through Land between the Lakes.



There are many neat little river towns on the Ohio. Rock in Cave is one. Here are the bikes the Ohio in the background.



Cave in Rock on the banks of the Ohio river was a human trap in the late 1700's early 1800's. Travelers floating down the river were lured to the cave with the promise of whisky and female company. When intoxicated they were murdered and robbed. Many gangs also used the cave as a hide out. This hoodlum is my bro in law.



A little north and inland is Garden of the Gods. Its basically large rock formations (odd ones too) with great views. I love places like this.




To get this tread back on track heres another pic of our Teneres'. We both have enjoyed these bikes. My bro in law and I both grew up on dirt bikes as kids. Later he rode cruisers (HD). I liked standards and sportbikes and enjoyed an f4i track bike till it got so exspensive. These bikes have given us all road and touring capabilities like neither of us have had. We'll ride dirt,backroad twisties interstate all comfortably with good range. Totals for the day 475 miles, 46.6 mpg and many smiles.

Them lights are Trail Tech and they just mount in the holes under there without any brackets.
