No No on 3 Hard Bag setup on '09
Here's a surprise. I have been looking for a year to get the proper top rack frame and a top case to compliment my Givi V-35's, and was going to purchase the rack from TT, and an unused Coocase from a member who is moving. TT came back and verified the rack that would work with the existing side racks, but stated that for the gen 1's, it is not recommended to do this since the framing might fail. I have read that handling can become gamey if riding 2 up and with 3 bags, but has any one ever experienced failure of the side rack frames? Here is a quote from TT. I think they should stop showing a picture of this setup if it's not recommended.
