So that little 'sissy bar' section stays upright permanently?
I think i need this rack to keep my kids on the back - sometimes it feels like my daughter goes to sleep and she holds on so softly - 8 years old - but she loves riding as much as i do.

Did it get in the way, or did you have to replace bolts for the side bags?

Yet to see any luggage of any brand/kind/mount that isn't hideous on any bike, but if you are going to go further than the supermarket then theres a limit to what you can get in your pockets haha. That rear topcase looks like it can hold a lot securely.


I seem to get away with magnetic tankbags, I have a small one and very big one...depending on the trip. Added benefit of course is weather protection and something to lean on!

Yes you need longer bolts. The bag is now sitting 1/2 inch outward .

That sissy bar as you referred to is actually used to stabilize top cases when attached, as they lock in from underneath, using this fixed bow to stabilize.

I have, however, heard of people using that bow to attach a backrest to. There are backrests that can be attached to the back of the top cases as well.

Thanks Lazos and Moto, I realise it's not a proper sissy bar, but at least it's fixed in position.
This will just give me a little more confidence that i wont lose my little one off the back from slipping off the seat.
Something for them to feel a little more safe as well, without using it like a backrest.

@shmakt : with a little effort you can easily get a sissy bar fabricated locally at a fraction of H&B cost. It's even more relevant if you are not intending to use luggage. I'm planning to do something similar soon.

See an example of a DIY sissy bar done by a member at the other forum:

can you be so kind to post some more close up pictures of the Ducati side frames fitted with the H&B rear racks?

I've already the ducati side bags and, as far as I understood, I could fit also the H&B rear rack using longer bolts (are they the same H&B supplies with the rack to fit their bow system frame?)
