No taxes? How did you register it?

$595 dealer/admin fee. Sales tax $766.64. Tag and title $90.10. At the time this was a good price. Seems now sales have dropped and dealers are lowering price more.

Makes sense, you actually paid $11,445 for the bike out the door before taxes and tags.

I know a couple of owners/dealers on a personal level and they both said they make far more money on parts and service over the course of a year than they do from profits from selling new bikes.

Just a note on that: I get my parts from them now, too. They were the dealer that had a new comfort seat in stock before my trip and I'm going to stick with them as long as I have the Tiger.

Seems to be a great shop, although too far away to get the service done there.

If you ever get to so-cal go see them, very nice store.

They have a new parts manager, Tony, great guy, very knowledgable. The shop is a small group of Ducati techs and they seem to know what they're doing. If you can make Ducati riders happy certainly they can satisfy a Tiger rider. I have only used them to update my ECU.

Unfortunately they lost their best sales guy, Chad. He was super to deal with, but he left to go sell for some motorcyce show circuit or something. Ran into him at the LB show.

As soon as I get one of my bikes paid off I want to get a new Monster. We shall see.

Which rack?

Gentlemen, I already have a rack on my XC (it's been there 2 years) but I'm not really thrilled with it. I'm looking to change.

What can you tell me about either of these:

Thanks!

Talked to Tony mostly when ordering parts - he's super helpful. Before my trip I was kind of in a hurry and they got the seat to me within two days for a reasonable shipping price.

Luckily we are in a position to own all our bikes without a loan, but as we just bought a very nice new bike for my wife, I'd like to wait a bit until I change mine. Wouldn't be that big a hit as I can sell mine for a much better price than her old bike, therefore not as much to put on top, but still. Not reasonable to change bikes all too often and I try to be reasonable. Until I'm not ...

I like the AltRider rack on mine. Has never given me reason to look for something else. Would be helpful to know what you are not thrilled with exactly.

Thanks!

I have the CJ Designs rack and a SE720 permanently mounted to it. It's a perfect fit, so I don't really fuss with it. It would be nice to take the top box off once in awhile, but I've gotten so used it and it's so handy it's just permenant. And it's wifey's backrest, as little as she goes.

When I need more cargo room I can strap another bag on top of the box. I usually put my tent up there and a jacket if I take one off mid ride.

It's a bit of a clunky design IMHO. Either of the others looks more easily adaptable to a variety of tasks. The SW-MoTech is designed to use expensive adapters for each purpose. I've been using it, but I'm not crazy about it.

Of course, once I decide to put it up for sale, I may describe it in more glowing terms.

As said, I use the AltRider with a Givi mount kit and a Givi V46 top case, if I'm not using the top case I put an Ortlieb Rackpack on it. Works great. No complaints, not looking to replace it - which says something as I'm fairly anal about how things work.

I also have an Altrider rack and very happy with the design. Use it mostly with a Wolfman tail bag for shorter trips and a Ortlieb dry bag for longer trips.
