    Might be the angle the pic was taken from. It looks as if taking the bike off its stand would be a problem!

    1. Horrible place to put a heavy weight (behind the rear axle)
    2. Does it interfere with the swing-arm at full deflection?
    3. It looks awful
    4. It looks just awful
    5. Have you not noticed how awful it looks?

    We will never be here again - have a good look around

    Just done 2000 miles round Spain and France on it and it is solid as a rock, doesn't hit anything and doesn't affect handling at all. In fact for £14.50 it's brilliant.

    You got a "zoomed out" picture as well? Be good to see it alongside more of the bike.....

    Cheers,

    I don't know whether that's a lot better but it's too hot to be bothered to wheel in out side.

    Do you use the pink cover to distract people from how awful it looks?

    US10L Kriega bag strapped on the pillion seat or on a pannier/topbox lid is my preferred option when I'm carrying my full on chain-pin-lock set.

    Because it just spoils such pretty looking bike doesnt it...overly harsh Mike.

    When the site is full of folks who are happy to spend hundreds of pounds on designer plastic mudgaurds somone who looks to come up with something themselves to solve a problem is to be commended in my view. So good on you Chris.
