    I have ridden a few errands with it. OK so far. I am taking it to the trailhead tomorrow. I wanted room for all three cases and the mountain bike so I could stash my moto gear while I rode, stash my stinky mtb clothes afterwards, keep a set of street clothes and still have enough room for a trip to the grocery store to get a 6 pack of wine. There are aftermarket racks that take the place of the top case, but I wanted to keep it if I could. May main concern is the ability of the cover of the side case to hold up to the stress of the fork mount. Worst case I have to buy a replacement lid and go to plan B. I don't think worst case involves picking my crunched mountain bike off the side of the road.

    Pretty much eliminates the opportunity for lane splitting but if not in CA, no problem!

    I'd like to rig something similar on my FJR1300. I've seen a few iterations of other set-ups that tend to be longitudinally oriented.

    I AM in CA and I split all the time. I am going to have to work hard to remind myself not to split with this set up.

    There are aftermarket racks like you describe. I may yet try one of those.
