Rob,

Since you're not looking solely at the hump area hopefully you've looked at all of the storage threads on here to come up with ideas. There are tons of storage ideas guys have used on these bikes over the years.

Just done the survey but it is flawed as it will not let me fill in Q 6 which has only one question that I can answer the rest do not apply I do not carry a pasenger or luggage I have other bikes for that.....So I have had togive false answers to Q 6 to proceed!!!!!

Hi , I completed your survey , I live in Northants Uk with a thruxton , I am very interested in this my bike will be heavily modified when I finished ,retro green paint , sign written with gold leaf , short wrapped exhaust , tail tidy lots of alloy bits etc
I want the cafe cool look and fun to ride , but as I own a sign company I could use bike to travel and do small decal jobs , cars etc , which I need bags , no way I want hard panniers but some cool brown leather semi rigid, but not harleyesque naff tassly tat and some thing I can fit on and off in a minute ... I have a cool old leather , copper rivited ammo bag on one side but only big enough for a phone and wallet

Pete7, with Q6 you can only have one option selected in each column, itís a limitation with the software that I cannot make this easier to complete

Rob.
I have just completed the survey TM (as an OAP, I really need to read questions more carefully)

If you want any further comments please get in touch and I will be glad to assist. I did my degree ( as a mature student) in Industrial Design/Transportation at Coventry in 1973-77, and a few of us did some bike based design work during the course.

Meanwhile I will see if I can spread the survey form a little further.

Pete

Thanks Pete,

This forum is a wealth of knowledge and have been on here many many times looking for answers to strange questions.

I now have 50 replies with 26 being completed. I have to confess that Q6 has been causing allot of problems and I wish I could've re-worded it as the 24 non-complete surveys stopping at this question. I cant change it now without deleting all the results gathered so far.

If you have started and stopped at Q6, please take it as 'if I had to do these, this is the order I would do them in'

Thanks again all, you have been so helpful.

Rob.

Thanks,

Hi all.

This is just to say thankyou for taking part. I will be closing the survey on sunday so I can review the results early next week so this is your last chance to take part if you want to.

I have 34 completed surveys out of the 65 started surverys and out of over 400 thread views.

Hopefully I will get a few more over the weekend, then the fun can begin.

My bike is in the lab and ready to have its dissasembled seat base and mock ups tested. Fatigue analysis has been started onthe rear sub frame and its all looking good. Built like a brick * house.

Rob.

Well done and best of luck.

With regard to subframe strength, the luggage/bike manufacturers seem to get around any weight challenges by placing a really low nominal limit on what can be carried. I have always assumed this is a litigation-proofing move, as the kit seems to be perfectly capable of carrying much much more on any prescribed 'limit'.

Best of luck

Pete
