Hi all

Has anyone put a sissy bar on an @t ?

Just got back from 2 days in Scotland and my son was complaining of back ache after 700 mile round trip. Because we are planning a longer trip in March i was wondering if anyone has added a support in the form of a sissy bar to the bike or maybe a top box would be better with a pad attached.

Its not planned as a permanent fixture but just for the 3 - 4k miles in March.

Oh and has anyone any sugestions for removing molten plastic off the exhaust? My sons overboot melted onto the exhaust because the wire guard won't fit on with the Zega panniers.

Cheers and festivity to all the members

Ian, Mark and Daisy have one on their AT which they used on their trip down through the America's. I don't think it's covered specifically on their site, but you may be able to get something from Mark.

As for getting the plastic off, if it won't "chip" off when cold, get it hot again and try and soak it into something else to pull it off.

Try Cillit Bang it is supposed to get most things off, or try oven cleaner.

as said top box with back pad will be the best option as its not stuck on all the time i had one on the shad box on my @ and the honda box on my vara and the wife said both were quite comfy for long journeys:cool:

How could you even say such a thing? If you are seen with a sissy bar on an @, Honda will recall your bike, and every self respecting @ owner will pelt you with rotten fruit and dung.........grumble mumble .......Bungee the boy to the back carrier if you must.....and that'll keep his feet off the exhaust too....

I'm going to ask Santa to help you in some way......:(

Thanks for the info I think I will look around for a top box with pad and as for the exhaust, well I'll heat it up and try a variety of potions starting with good old WD40.

Cheers
