IIRC there's a whole thread on em somewhere around here.

Steverino's made one for his Airhead GS too.

For me, its always been 'an around to it' cause I can't decide which way I wanna do it. Fork mount or BB mount or side mount or... I get all confused an shit.

I've been thinking about it, too. My Tiger is so dang tall and has a short passenger/rack area. Putting a measuring tape to the Triumph makes it seem like either bike will be way over my head and at least 2' off the back. IDK.

I've seen that thread. This mount is far above the others I've seen. Very compact and tidy. I like it a lot.

slowly coming together.....

Looks like I'll do my first bikepacking trip on the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving Day - Nov. 26 & 27.

Here's the route:



If anyone wants to join me, I'd love the company. It's two days, about 70-miles and I don't plan to get in a rush.

The scenery should be beautiful - from the site linked above:

2' OTB is better than hitting you in the head.

I was thinkin about something similar to the mount on the scooter.

...or using some of my Yak rack parts and just doing a long tray mount. I'd think you'd prolly need to support the rear end of the tray tho. That's where I'm

Something as simple as a toe strap would work. Its not like that's doing anything but holding the bike in one place. The fork mount is doing all the work.

Maybe a cradle under the bottom bracket with a strap around the base of the downtube or the chainstays? in addition to the fork mount, of course. I'd think you'd want the frame very secure so it wont get loose side to side or anything.

plan B would be where you leave teh back wheel in, and use the little short wheel holder like yakima Boa, then you only need a fork to hold the front wheel



actually, more I think about it, more I like the idea. the Boa rear wheel holder could be a little forward of the rear axle, attached to a loop that stuck off the back of the motorcycle rack. the standard yakima rail clamp fits around almost anyting, square or round.

The problem with plan B is that you've got to have some kind of support all the way out there. If you just support the BB, you have less material and support needed. Supporting the bike's rear wheel would require extra strength, as the weight will be leveraged. Plus, I'd have to take the rack off after each use because of it's amount of extention. A BB holder could be left on the bike all the time.

I'm thinking of supporting the BB with a skidplate looking platform coated in plasti-dip. On the underside of the skidplate, weld a couple threaded bungs that'll be tightened down with wing screws inserted, from underneath, through a slot in the main platform, to allow the skidplate to be adjusted fore/aft. Some of the hang-type bicycle racks use a rubber strap, for securement, over the frame tubes. They simply slip over nubs on the rack. I could use bolts tacked to the underside of the skidplate as the nubs.

My Tiger has factory bags, so I'll utilize the mountings for the front loop. I'll just need to design a main platform that'll run from the forward loop, under the rear grab handle (that has two threaded holes underneath), and out the rear.

My friend has a fab shop with a laser cutter, CNC brake, etc. This is definitely possible. I just need to make an appointment for his time, borrow another friend's trailer, and load up both bicycles and Tiger.

my mental picture was a rectangular U shape of the right diameter tubing that would hold the clamp for the Boa's rear wheel holder on the short middle part of said U, this U would be inserted into some clamps on the rack deck so it could be readily removed. also, the boa can be pivoted several inches forward/backward for different wheelbase bikes. this would be harder with a BB clamp, even if thats only half the wheelbase (fork to BB distance).
