While at Rally in the Gorge, last weekend, I got a chance to ride with some skilled big bike riders. One of them is Richard, who rides with the HeavyWeights Adventure Riding Team. He has a KTM 990 Adventure, that he tosses around like it was a pit bike. Meaning, he rides the wheels off that machine. He had been looking for a front storage solution that didn’t get in the way of his ride and when he saw the new Buckin’ Roll, he knew his search was over. While mounting the Buckin’ Roll, he found a couple of mounting details that we thought would be helpful to others, so I am sharing them here.
One detail was to loop the rear mounting straps of the harness, under the front cowling. This makes for a very tidy package because the mounting straps don’t extend down each side of the bike to the frame.
Another detail was to use a set of 20″ Pronghorn Straps to mount the Top Case to the Buckin’ Roll harness. This made getting in and out of the Top Case much easier. The final detail was to attach the Pannier Pockets to the tank guards in the forward most position. This secures the Pannier Pockets completely out of the way and firmly anchored in place.
Hopefully this are helpful hints for others to use!
