Hi there

You can get loads of racks that are designed to fit onto a Dommie from people like:

Touratech
Hepko+Becker
Five Star
Givi

What are you thinking of doing with it?
Tarmac only or mixtures short or long journeys
What kind of luggage are you going to use?
hard or soft

These will all affect your choice.... Give us some idea and there is loads of info we can let you have.

I agree. Ernie (Overland-Solutions) does top work. Here's what he did for me:

health and safety warning: you're not allowed to use Ernie's racks at Cusses Gorse MX track ;-) they didn't like the width of metal work (with no luggage) and were only mildly amused by my request do attempt the 60' table top with full kit. I don't suppose many will find this an inconvenience, but I did!

Is that the MX place in Docklands?

A "proper" 'crossing friend told me it was pretty weak, but I've never been. There was discussion of an XT day - might have to be an XT/XRL day

The pic I posted was an Ernie setup, designed to hold soft bags off the pipes - sounds about right for you?

are you calling me a soft bag?
Cusses Gorse is out near Salisbury. its a full on MX circuit. I've not tried Docklands so I can't compare the two, but Cusses is pretty alarming as there are serious kiddies flying through the air with their wheels at my head height when I must be inches (four foot?) off the ground. I got punted off by one lad that ran into me as I took a berm on road tyres ;-) will be going next weekend if the weather is fair.
