You might consider something like this....Hi all,
ive been searching for luggage, racks etc but to still be able to have a pillion. The bigger the better really! Ideally we’d like to be able to go away for a weekend or maybe a week.
Everything seems to involve sacrificing so much space that I don’t think the two of us would fit. What have others in similar situations been able to do?
ps this is on scrambler
maybe go with this... turn signals on the plate frame? It looks like the bags press on your signals and they can’t be seen unless directly behind.One of my concerns is the combo tail tidy and saddlebags means that my brake lights and turn signals are invisible from the side. Another is that the turn signals I used are a bit bigger than the Rizoma that you can purchase with the tail tidy and so there is not much room between the saddlebags and the turn signals. I have not had a chance to do a road trip with this setup and so I still don't know if this will be an issue.
Hi, just been searching forum for info about this wunderlich pillion rack (ex sub frame) and found your post. Firstly, hope all is good health wise and you are keeping safe and well. About the rack, wondered whether you did fit this item and how it went. Thinking about doing the same thing for similar travel light reasons.Hi Dave. Thanks for your help. Unfortunately I sold on the pillion seat. The wunderlich one says in conjunction with rear frame.
I'll check hepco & becker site.
Scratch that, wunderlich do a version that doesn't require the rear frame.
That will do me
So I fitted the hepco and Becker rear rack, but how serious do we think they are about the 5kg limit?? I mean the explore 45 weighs about that empty....Luggage Options for 2015 Classic
Rizoma, Unit Garage, and Hepco & Becker rear racks all have 5kg weight limit, but look nice.
Wunderlich has a rack that bolts to the subframe in place of the pillion seat, so weight is not an issue, but it's $396. Then you have to buy luggage.
So went with Kriega US20 Drypack ($159) that's easy to secure on top of the pillion seat with quick-release hooks that attach to web loops secured to the subframe.
Got a Kriega US10 Drypack ($109) that can piggyback to the US20 tail bag for more storage, or can be used as a tank bag with Kriega's tank converter ($39).
The BMW tank bag is way too big and $323 with the harness.
Same setup I have on my R100GS.
Kriega's stuff is bullet proof.

Are you still liking these? I can't find that many people on the forums who have installed them. I'm considering them, but I'm a little bit worried about how they attach and the weight limit H&B lists for them - only 3 kg per side. Are the passenger pegs still usable with these installed?
