There are some threads on this, but I wanted to start a new one to get some opinions, pictures, pro/cons of all the rear luggage rack options for the 2015+DVT
In planning my trip to alaska Im realizing a rear rack could really come in handy to give me extra room for strapping down stuff such as camping gear or one of my kriega us soft bags, maybe the US 30. Also I need to carry some extra fuel. Id really like to maybe mount a rotopax fuel container on one of these? I never intend to mount a top case to one of these racks, only intend to use it for strapping stuff down and maybe mounting a rotopax container. I also plan on only having it on the bike for long trips.
So things Im considering are how easy the rack mounts on and off, how sturdy it is, how much weight does it hold, cost, construction, and is it somewhat aesthetically pleasing? Also, are there only 3 options out there for something like this for the dvt?
Ducati performance luggage rack
Can get it for 270 dollars or so. Looks nice. Heard its hard to install. Says it can only hold 5kg/11lbs
SW Motech Alu-Rack
$330.00! Looks ok. Says it can hold 7.5kg/16.5lbs.
