Givi racks installed, although they didn't want to be
Sheesh, I gotta vent a little here. I just finished installing the Givi PL532 sidecase racks I bought from a fellow trooper a couple months back. I made sure to loosen the passenger pegs first, and wait until everything was together to start tightening bolts. But of course I had to muscle the racks around to get the bolt holes to line up right, and the Givi bolts are POS. What make them think allen head bolts of seemingly the softest metal available was a good idea?!? :bom_furious: What should have been a 30 minute job took 1.5 hours.

"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top. I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller
