(Ventura) Luggage Rack

Postby chrobis » Sat Mar 17, 2007 3:39 am

Has enybody mounted the Ventura luggage system/mount to their SD? Who has used some other luggage (rack) system, and to what effect?

I've used Ventura on my SV650 in the past and have enjoyed it - being able to switch from a tiny sport rack to the mondo touring rack (with pack) is very utilitarian; utilitararian is key.

I just mounted the KTM accessory tank bag this afternoon - nice but small, and when expanded the only part of the instruments I can see is the top of the tach, between 7 & 9 grand!! (Well, Officer...)

Don't you dare put a ventura rack on it.... Or you'll be barred from this site..
And then on the eighth day, The Devil created the KTM Super Duke 990 ; cos he was a bad ass, and had to get around town..... God secretly wished he had one.

That reminds me......I've been intending to put one of those luggage roof boxes from Halfords on my Bugatti Veyron, does anyone know if the universal fitting kit works over 200 mph?

:lol:

I wouldn't, they aren't safe.

Just use a standard roof rack, bin bags and bungies, you'll be fine.

Still, some solution for luggage would be nice. We're planning a 5/6 trip to the Alps which should be heaven on the SD. The small KTM tankbag alone won't get you very far.

I'm looking at bigger tankbags from SW Motech (Engage Sport with Quicklock) and Bagster:

But something acceptable on the rear of the bike would be nice too.

i used a pair of oxford saddlebags last summer... but you have to have akro cans fitted (or any pair that runs very cool) as the stock cans will burn through every substance known to man :lol:

I used some similar many years ago. You hang them over the seat and get the missus to hold them down with her arse (or if you travel solo - move them forward so you sit on the straps. This also keeps them away from the hot bits)

Bubble wrap (no, please don't. I was kidding)

yeah, i've had the panniers for ten years, that heat protection is high temp fibre-glass cloth which i had fitted for an older bike....

they also come with straps which tie down on the pillion pegs to keep them from bobbing up & down (for when the missus' ass is absent)
