[Another] Does this exist?

The large topcase for the GT is to the best of my knowledge the same topcase as the R1200RT. I would like to add a rack to the topcase.

I have scoured the Internet, visited some dealer sites, and to the best of my knowledge cannot find anything like this:

A LUGGAGE RACK, SIMILAR TO THE ONE THAT IS ON THE K1200LT would indeed be a nice additon. Does anyone know if one is being made for the R1200RT?

John,

Tell us your secret, please - what are you going to carry on the rack?
Are you missing space for a fridge? :-))

Take care!

The ability to stow stuff on a cycle is kinda like:
Disk storage on a computer
Runway to takeoff and land
Size of your garage
Size of your attic
Size of your basement

Also, to mount my stuffed animals, or, perhaps an AK-47/AR-15, maybe and RPG launcher.

THERE'S NEVER ENOUGH SPACE.

Sorry, John, but the space on the forum is restricted AFAIK.

Talking

Great pictures . . . and at a convenient time, perhaps you could have some famous Moscow landmarks as the backdrop. Thanks, and very enjoyable.

BTW, without being too nosey, and it looked delicious, what were you eating with the beer. Doesn't look like anything we have here in Applebees, Chili's, or McDonalds?

PS: And it looks like EASYWOMAN05 (That just doesn't look quite right) of course riding an F650??? C'mon, let her ride the GT.

That was the week-end ride to Minsk/Belorussia end of July. 700 km west from Moscow. There is a brewery-restaurant there and I ate a local famous food called "mochanka". It's meat with chease and some potatoes-based crepe(but not exactly "blini") - very simple and tasty.
I hate riding in the city - it's one big traffic jam.
GT is too high and heavy for her. Her next bike is F800ST I guess:-))
After it is available in Russia.

Take care!

When I lived in Nebraska in the mid to late '70's there was a chain of fast food restaurants called Runza Huts. To this day I am not sure what was in them, but they were also very delicious. My wife and I came up with some of the indgredients: cooked cabbage, ground beef, cooked onions, cheese, and we also think potatoes. As I remember they were wrapped in a crepe of some sort. On a cold winter day (most of winter in Nebraska, perhaps like Moscow) they really were good.

Thanks for the reply . . . it's 3:00 PM here and not anywhere near dinner time. although on Sundays we eat late lunch/early dinner, so I've now gotten very hungry.

Regards,
John
