I'm preparing for IOM trip next month. I don't have luggage rack and my understanding it's out of stock. (Would be nice if anyone wants to sell me one).

Has anyone tried attaching a couple of waterproof vaccum sacs to the rear of the 2 roll bars behind the passenger and drivers head? Will it work?

Regards

Ahmed

No. They will work but... They will be lying directly on the paint and with vibration and grime will wear it down is spots. Cover with a clear coat plastic stick on sheet first. Maybe that will do.


What's your mileage? Who cares. Is it practical? See #1. What happens when it rains? You get wet.

That looks like a good solution. But I wonder if it fits well on the curvey boot of the 3wheeler? Anyone tried it please?

Hi Ahmed - if travelling solo the passenger footwell will take a good sized grip. If 2-up, an old trick is to use a parcel service to send a bag of clothes to and from the hotel wink

PS I have the MorganPark Germany rack on mine…

If you're travelling alone, obviously the passenger's footwell and seat are enough for your luggage. I guess you’re two if you are thinking about luggage over the boot. The luggage rack is clearly the way to go. In my honest opinion, fixing voluminous (and probably heavy) bags to the roll hoops may cause problems in twisted roads and most probably damage the paint. hide

Therefore, make sure you protect the paint properly, and secure the bags quite seriously drive

Let me tease you with this post somestick innocent https://www.speedymarmots.com/hangar-works-10-luggage-set/

And we have recently improved the set with an additional bag for our heavy Barbour coats, described in the first pages of this last post https://www.speedymarmots.com/long-range-campaign-2-3rd-to-17th-of-september-2021/ sherlock

Some non slip grip matting should protect your paint, something like this.

I use it under bonnet to help keep my tool bag & wheel hammer bag in place. I have not tried it for luggage.
