Side Case Racks - which are the lowest?
Honest I searched, even using Google :-) Maybe I'm a bad Googler.
Which racks position side cases the lowest?
I have the factory rack and Kappa boxes on my '03 1000. The PO tweaked the rack somewhat. It still works fine, but only 3 of the 4 holes line up that attach to the flat rack behind the seat. I'm trying to justify new racks to the missus, by saying she'll be more comfortable. I'd like to keep the factory Kappa bags.
The Adventure Motostuff top rack seems like a no-brainer because you can adjust the top box back more than normal. I think the wife would definitely like that. Are their other top racks that do this?
I've always thought the side bags were kinda high on the factory racks. Shouldn't they be as low as possible, without compromising clearance, for a better Center Of Gravity? Also, I'm thinking they'd be easier to get a leg up and over. It seems the Motech racks hold the bags lower than Givi. Can anyone confirm this who's seen both? I've seen neither, just going by pics. Are there other racks that hold the bags lower? Should I not care about the height of the side cases?
Thanks in advance for your input.
