Opinions on rack for my GF's 750

http://www.ricerocketracks.com/

Seems pretty well put together. Instead of the seat holder deal for 40 bucks I'd just strap the seat or cowl on top of the load.

Cycle World reviewed it and said it was pretty well made. They had the same concern I had though and that is to not put too much weight that high up. But with the shape of the new tails it's pretty hard to get saddlebags on them.

Seeing that thing in the mag pissed me off.
Why didn't I think of that (make it and sell it) it is almost the same as what did with my spare pass seat and tail bag but with a rack instead.

Seems like a good idea for traveling.
Passengers carry a lot of their weight up high. So I think some weight low on the rack would be fine, as long as the load is secured real well.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'
