Vstrom DL650 Pannier Rack Solutions
recently bought a set of soft luggage panniers as was good deal, but realizing now kind of done this back to front as need to attach them to the bike, and reckon I need some form of rack to keep them from the hot and moving parts...
My girlfriend and I are planning on a trip from the UK to Turkey and back in a few months and dont want to spend a lot of money on racks from Touratech and the likes (i.e. over £150) as costs already building up.
Has anyone got any suggestions as to where I can get a decent racking system that will support two panniers and a soft top hold all (the make of the panniers is Moto Detail if that helps), without breaking the bank?
I did find some for the 04-05 year, but they seem to be structured differently to the 2006 model I have, (lower exhaust).
Also does anyone know if the Vstrom1000 and 650 would be the same layout so a rack that suits the 1000 would fit the wee as well?
Would greatly appreciate any advice
