Happy Trails rack review.

Received my new Happy Trails racks and Givi 21 boxes this past Friday. Installed them and have been using them every day since. The racks are very well made. Nicely finished and went on easily. Took about 15 minutes to install. Didnt have to bother with relocating the rear signal lights as the bike already has a fender eliminator kit. I had never looked very close at any givi boxes before. I was a little surprised at how "light duty" they are considering how much they cost. Other than that, I really like how they look and how much more convenient it is to carry stuff to work. One really nice thing about the HT racks is that you can switch to different boxes later on and still use the same rack.
Have a good day,
Fred

HT's are good racks. I agree and feel that the Givi cases are a little lighter duty than I care for. As a result, I went with Caribou's. Certainly not the most graceful things to look at, but stout for Hell. They will take a substantial hit and survive (hopefully even provide a little leg protection for me and pillion). Best part is that they are warranteed for a lifetime by Pelican.
