I have the same kit Albie. I'm a bit concerned about the horse shoe design on heavy trail. I do not take chances, I strap the bag around the bended tube structure ...

I love eveything about this bikes concept and i just cant wait for 2011 for a adventure! and i would buy 690e tomorro BUT if the gas cap wasnt located were it is .every 200ks you have to fill up ,what? you pull all your luggage off ? come on ktm !200ks range that could list the 18l baja tank and seat combo in there hard parts list but NO!
i am selling my dr650 and just cant make my mine up on what next? 950se or 690e .i do a bit of alloy fab and a friend that dose carbon fiber, i think you could make a good looking adventure out of 690e add some trick looking alloy tanks and carbon fiber adventure type front with duel headlights.and down swept pipe/muffler .Humm"

I am assuming the "tubes" are one part, and the "plate" is an option?
The tubes are two piece, one left one right. They run staight back and ends at the back of the plate. The plate on the picture is included i belive, but the big plate (rack) is an option. Sorry no pics

I got the hard-parts mounting bracket for the tail-bag and used that to cobble together a rear rack from a Touratech rack extension which I was no longer using.

Hmmmm..... couldn't figure out how to write in the same post as my pictures ... oh well.

What we've got here is a quality, metal ringed milk crate that easily holds a duffle bag I use for working out/going to the gym. It's a good upgrade from the cheesy, $5.00 wall mart hanging file folder crate I had on it before :)

It takes me about 10 minutes at the gas station to take it off, do the credit card thingy, fill it up and put it back on. I like where it sits - right on top of the fuel cap unfortunately. The Balance there seems to be pretty good. I kept it on while launching off some pretty big jumps in the sand dunes in Pismo beach California and it seemed happy!

On my old LC4 I had a 56 liter givi box that slid 10" forward and back on rails - I am rigging something like that up right now only it's more difficult with the gas cap of course. All the way back would be ideal for a passenger and filling the tank. Forward is better for center of gravity etc. It took only about 10 seconds on my old bike to slide it back. I let you know when it's up and working.

I appreciate all the other pictures - they are great for getting the creative juices flowing! Rick

Here's a few pics of my old bike with the givi box, and then just the rack and the base for the givi box. The givi base slides on those 4 rails. For the 690 I'd remove that center rail and I'm wondering if the givi base will be strong enough if I cut a triangle shape out of it to make access to the fuel cap easier?

To fill the tank on the new bike would then require
1.) popping the box off with the 1 button givi Monokey release
2.) loosing the 2 wing nuts holding the base in place at the bottom.
3.) sliding the box all the way back

I find I don't like the balance of the bike if its far enough back to give instant access to the filler.
By the way, I love the bike but hate the filler cap!! And I'm convinced my leaks - both ways.
The givi boxes are awesome - I took a couple hard falls on then and they tottly protected the bike, (and my leg if I hadn't gotten it out) and bare got a scratch on them!
