I like the look of the TRK33/TRK46 but just want to know what my options are.

I've had the PLR6401 rack set up installed, but no Tiger-specific cases yet.

Nice looking rack. It looks very solid, but it doesn't look like it is drilled for Givi hardware. Will Givi cases fit?

Not sure if Givi top box will work with it. I use a Pelican 1520.

Can't deny that's a good price though.

Not sure how they'd do in a crash but they feel very solid and secure when mounted.

Well, I have the Givi ones on my Tiger955i and they are bent after a fall. The pannier was scratched but the frame bent.

This is why I had Happy Trail SU Racks on my Girlie and will do so again with my 800XC. Having your rack serve double duty as a roll cage is a must.

My issue with the Happy Trail racks was the design of the crossover bar out back. IMO, the Wolfman racks were a better option in that regard as it's both beefier and more straight across. That bar adds allot to the lateral strength of the racks.

I agree the HT back cross bar is a strange design. Im sure they have a reason...

Doubles as a wheelie bar?

Something to smack your shin on when walking around back? First blind point of contact when walking the bike backwards?

I've got a feeling that they took the most obvious route to clear both the rear tire and the rear fender.

Shin ??? How tall ARE you ? The HT SU rack is at least 8" above my knee. But I'm about chimp or small Orang' size.

Anyway, maybe I will be the guinea pig and I will report back as this thing progresses.
Have you paid Holan a visit yet?
