It's pretty close, but I want one a bit bigger and with more tie down points.

Basically I want to be able to either use a trunk or have a kick-ass rack that will hold a lot.
I have a touratech that I'll sell ya.

I'm not too fond of the Touratech since it doesn't have an option for the luggage adapters, thanks though.

Looks like it's between the AltRider and SW-Motech, similar prices and similar looks...

caribou has plate mounts, top boxes and quick release system
http://cariboucases.com/store/?name=Home
i think the 25L (a pelican 1520 case) is an ideal top case.
it's no so tall that it's visually top heavy on the bike.
it's rugged as all hell for off-road use and i has a huge flat surface for strapping a bag on top if need be.
caribou also has pads to add for passenger confort.

here's a 1520 mounted on my DR

San Diego Back Country Discovery Route

Do we have any other Tiger XC owners in San Diego on here? I'm mapping out a 2 day San Diego Back Country Discovery Route for a weekend ride in our back yard. When i'm done i'll post the gpx file in a new thread devoted to the route. I'de love any help for taking video and pictures of the more interesting sections. I'll have it avalable in Google Earth KML and gpx files.

that rear rack w/ the Givi mounts and treker case is pretty sweet.

One difference between the two systems:

Altrider will attach a Monokey case, but the attachments are bolted directly to the rack. SW Motech uses a quick-release adapter plate for when you want to add on the Givi, H-B, etc., case.

Altrider
+ Case attaches more closely to the rack so sits lower.
- Case mount hardware stays on the rack, it's no longer flat on top for carrying items.

SW Motech
+ Adapter plates available for multiple systems.
+ Quick release mounts are under the rack, leaving the top flat for cargo.
- Adapter plates are an added expense.
- Mounted cases sit slightly higher due to the adapter plate.

I've no skin in the game; bought SW Motech because I already had their rack/adapter/case for another bike, so this makes it a simple thing to move it from bike to bike.

Hope you find a good product for your needs.

those Givi mounts come off that AltRider rack very quickly if need be.

the carribou system leaves you the largest flat rear rack for dry bags and such when the top box is not in use.

I just purchased the SW-Motech rack w/ the Givi Monokey adapter plate and the Givi Trekker 46L top case for my Tiger 800. It mounted easily and looks great. I haven't tied anything down to the rack directly yet, but seems to have some good tie down slots. If you need more, SW-Motech seems to make another adapter plate for soft luggage which may provide a wider platform for loading stuff onto it.

The only complaint I have about the quick release adapter plate for the Givi case is that the case seems to fit a bit loose and rattles around a bit while riding. They provided rubber pads but they don't seem to be quite tall enough. I've alleviated the issue a bit by gluing on some rubber extensions made out of old bicycle tubes. This takes up enough space to make the top case not rattle so much.

Hope you find what you are looking for.

Design and make/have made, your own. It only has to be just a simple flat alloy plate with a few slots and holes to suit. It can be as big/small and trick looking as you want.
Here's a picture of mine which has been used and adapted to 3 different bikes. Yes it looks beaten to death but it's be around a bit. You can see the bit's on there for my GIVI cases.

jblk9695 - Was the exhaust side bolt on stanchion clamp your problem too ? Trust you saw fbj913 post on remedy ? blacktiger - from evaluating clearance, appears your suggestion may work. But shorter bolts would also be a cure. Bolt ends protrude about 3/8" past the Nylock nuts when tightened down. 1/4" shorter bolt would do the trick. May just hacksaw mine & call it good. But will first await response from pic & email I sent the HT folks. Thanks all! j

I made my own rear rack also, no holes to adapt anything to just yet as I was using a Wolf Tail bag. Will be getting one of the top boxes made by the guy in Romania so might make up some sort of quick release set up. Found a file for the Triumph logo that was easy to convert for my small CNC mill to add the finishing touch
