I want to get a used rear seat from Ebay so I can tear off the cover and padding and mount a plank of wood to it and make it into a large luggage rack. I see many on EBay listed as 2015-16. Will these fit my '17?
The seat arrived yesterday. I took the seat cover and padding off. Looks like it will be fairly easy to mount a luggage rack on it. I may even get this trunk(link below)and mount it on. I know it's not as nice as a Givi, but check out the price. When I finish the project I'll post pics.
I hope it works out well for you. Personally, I hate having something back there.
When I commute to work, I sometimes put a small lunchbox on the back seat and hold it in place with one of those bungee cord nets. I find it a little more difficult to throw my leg over when that small bag is there and once on the bike, it hits my back pack if I try to sit up and stretch at a red light.
I prefer riding with nothing in that location. I guess like anything else, you'll probably get used to it though.
