    Airhead Luggage Racks

    I was sure that I had luggage racks for the R 100 GS PD, as I had 2 sets of racks in storage. Today I found out that neither is correct. The Givi luggage on the bike has a damaged hinge, so that set of racks has been removed. I have a set of BMW cases in good shape, and had originally intended to mount these on the bike. This bike needs to support a weekend jaunt to events in the region. It is not going RTW and is not a hardcore off-road machine. What would you do? For bonus points, can anyone visually tell what models these racks fit?

    A. Find racks and mount the original BMW cases
    B. Put the Givi racks back on, and find some Givi cases
    C. Sell what you have and buy some soft luggage

    I still don't understand what you are trying to do with the racks; but as you probably already know, set A is for a /6 maybe /7 set of Krausers.......lol.....Now watch all the experts advise what they really are,,,,,,,,,

    Set B looks like a mid 80's mono shock , R80 or similar. One long arm straight the other long has a bend in the run.

    Thanks for the kind words on the blog. It is a labor of love. The Shoei Airhead belongs to a friend of mine. Unfortunately, that is one of very few pics of that very cool bike.
