2012 luggage rack width and off-center measurements?
I've googled like the wind and haven't found anything like the old luggage thread for the '12+ stroms.
What are the widths of the rack (only), mounted, on the 2012 for the givi, hepco becker, and swmotech racks? (24.5" for the HT rack and it is more or less centered).
How off-center are the givi, hepco becker, sw motech (as in, how far is the rack center off from the bike center, in inches?)
Good, bike "ass shots" with the racks installed would be a boon to the community, too - I've only been able to find excellent pictures of the sw-motech rack.
Disclaimer: yes, I know the luggage need not be symmetrical. I'd still like it to be within 1" of symmetrical-ish, and *also* sub 38" wide, and *also* made of plastic, like my k9 wee with caribous.
So, between those three (givi, sw-motech, hepco becker) which is least off-center? I've seen a few images with cases not hanging fully vertical, too - is that a problem specific to one rack manufacturer, or just bad luck?
