If Givi made a frame thingy for my bike I'd buy it right now... I'm still searching for something decent.

Find something close, a hacksaw, and a welder. That's what I did for my Aprilia Falco.

They make one for the ER6f, but not the Ninja 650... I think I'll just get a tail bag for now...

I took mine off last week, a fear that Dakez would laugh at it and hurt my feelings.

Changed the rear tire and with the top box and panniers it rocks back on the center stand, with them off it rocks forward.

I think I will run without it until I get a quick dissconnect for it. It's a pain in the ass climbing on and off the bike with it there but damn it's nice to stash your helmet when you leave the bike on a rainy day.

They are handy to be sure. It is a gear testing day today here on the wet-side of Oregon.

Huh? The ER6F and the Ninja 650R are the same bike. It's called the Ninja 650R here in the states and an ER6F...elsewhere.

ER6F, see the rear handles.








The Ninja 650 Doesn't have them




That's where it mounts.
