That's what I'm interested in too. Errands and stuff around the city and week/weekend trips. Nothing too heavy. The rack in the pic looks like a terrific anchor for my Kriega bags. I'm thinking between my backpack, a Kriega r20 and perhaps a tank bag I'd be all set. Weight distribution! : )The Rack looks nice and does go well with the bike. I doubt if there's any official specifications out there that would state allowable weight. I'm thinking of strapping a tail bag on the fender for small weekend trips, but it would just hold a day or two's worth of clothes, so not much weight involved. But it would be interesting if someone would be able to find out.
+1Triumph will probably sit on the fence here to cover their ars*
It's a metal mudguard with not a great distance between front mounting & rear stay, reasonably sturdy, I have the ural rack too (Kaj thanks for tip about that a few weeks ago)
and will happily load it up, can not believe the big deal being made about how much weight it may or may not stand.
Just look at it, form an opinion & use it, not that hard, is it ?
Of course you could wait for a structural engineers report in triplicate.
