Yeah I know there are commercial options - BUT - imo they are silly expensive. THE H&B seems to be somewhat limited in terms of weatherproofing and the SW-M needs the base plate from the seat. This to me somehow wrankles.

Also - And this is just my personal beef - I'd rather they were magnetic. That and/or large enough to cosset the MotoMosko Reckless base fully.

So I have a question/request.

Does anybody have one of the KNOCK-OFF rear seat hump thingies?. If so I would appreciate some feedback on rigidity (material thicknesses) and photos of the underside.

I'm interested in the H.B. Seat Rack as it replaces the pillion seat and doesn't disturb the look of the bike like a Tail Rack. Also, you won't damage the actual seat with bungee hooks- n -junk. I do agree it is a little pri$ey but how much is a replacement seat. Can any one speak to is functionality"

It seems like a really sizable tank bag is not as usable on the 790's weird shaped tank.
That's been my luggage solution on so many bikes.

I too would be interested to know more about inexpensive tail humps as that fits my esthetic.

I ordered the SW - upon getting 3/4 of the way through install I then realized the stock pillon needs to be disassembled. After several cuss words I repackaged and will be sending back. - for $300 they could not include a plastic base plate that would cost what.... $10 to source???? I too am searching for a more reasonable solution to have daily commute storage on the bike. I have been tempted to try the aliexpress luggage rack that bolts where the grab handle bolts into.... for $50 it may be the answer

Wrong Stewart! An enormous tank bag does work nicely on the weirdly shaped 790 tank.

O.K. Barbagris, challenge exceted.
This is a Givi Voyager, Fully deployed. It's pretty big but with the Dukes riding position the bars are still comfortably within reach. I can't see the dash with the second tier open but thats ok. No wind blast on the chest with this baby on.
It has a magnetic base. In conjunction with my homemade strap it is secure and safe.
Bottoms Up

"Excuse me sir! - Do you know how fast you were going?" - "No officer, I'm afraid I cannot see the speedo" - I see an excuse for legislation!. If fact I think it may be the case somewhere - I have this niggle at the back of my brain.
