Appreciate that guys. I thought i'd read something like that on ADV as well... I'm not really sure what I'll be putting in it. I haven't done many trips, don't have camping gear, but those are things i'd like to do eventually, so maybe i'll look for the givi rack just to be safe.
I'd like to be able to use this and my tank bag, maybe a book bag to do some decent trips.
Sounds like to be safe the givi rack is the better option.
