OK...i haven't post a pic up here yet...I've been meaning to though. Memorial day weekend i got to test out the new frames that i made to mount up some hard bags onto the Tona. i took off up the coast and camped out near Morrow Bay. what a awesome place i live in......ahhhh southern Cali....sorry for the rest of ya..hahaha. it also gave me a chance to test the new Pilot 2CT's. i switched to a 180 vs 190 tire. like the way the 180 holds a line in the corner vs the 190 fighting back. the 2CT's are turning out to be a nice tire, i like the response from them so far. so i know this is a S3 forum.....but I'm sure ya ll will appriceate a sexy beast when ya see one....oh yeah, tell me what ya think of my luggage racks that i made. the frames come off in like 10 minutes if that and i can then be ready to hit the twisties. the frames i made accept any maker of bags. i installed Givi bags that lock on, and lock shut. that way i can take my trip and not worry about valuables...i have ridden many long trips on the 3 different Tonas that i have had..and the soft bags were just not cutting it, i always worried about some a-hole diggin thru my stuff if i walked away from my bike.....this solved that problem....

thanks for the comments guys, are any of the last generation S3 owners interested? the 02-04 owners?...i can use a local shop to get the dimensions if someone wanted a set for the 1050 S3. i have already built 4 sets for other Tona owners, as they asked me too build them some. i never thought it would be as well received as it has been. it looks that i might be building a more of these....a local shop wants me to partner up to make, and sell them for the new 1050 tiger......so if anyone is interested let me know....they will be offered in mild steel, and probally black powder coated, as the price of stainless has gone thru the roof.....

If I was going to ride a bike with a fairing, it would be a Tona. If I rode a Tona, it would be for touring. If I did a lot of touring, hard bags would be the way to go. That's some mighty fine work dano!

you know the tabs i talked about?....you can see the 2 bolt tabs on the black frame. they slide into slots on the bottom of the bags. the other 2 Givi plates don't have the bolt tabs..they have the slotted tabs that are moulded to the frame...
