Hi All,

I'm looking for a luggage holder or rack for the 'cat. My backpack is starting to ache my back...

Thanks,

Si

I have Ventura on mine. Consists of a set of L brackets that are specific to the bike, they then make a range of racks and luggage that are all easily remove able so not to spoil the look of the bike.

I like this because if and when I change the bike I just need to replace the L bracket and everything else will fit.

The L brackets aren't cheap (unless someone is selling them second hand) but the rest is always available on eBay.

Before I got the topbox I used a luggage net too - I simply lashed my rucksack to the back of the bike with the net, making a rudimentary tailpack. I used some of that non-slip matting between the rucksack and the seat/tail unit to protect the paint and keep the rucksack from slipping.

I never ride with a rucksack; it is not only tiring but also not good for the spine in the event of an accident.
