    First TW200

    I would give you mine but we are about as far apart as you can be in the lower 48.....I am old and short and fat and it is actually difficult for me to swing my leg up and over the rack especially if I have a pack on I usually just ride with a small back pack...on my will love your bike.....

    Welcome Redtail, I have 3 cycleracks racks on our TWs. 2 with the hump and one without the hump. If I could I would change all mine to the humpless one.

    Welcome from British Columbia, Canada!

    I really like my Manracks utility rack which is small and strong and suits my needs for day travels. Many like the larger Cycleracks and Happy Trails racks for their larger platform, good for longer adventures and bigger loads.

    Manracks is the best rack in the world. Everyone should put a Manrack on their TW. Nobody should get any other rack for their TW but the Manrack. If you really want to be cool (not as doing a wheelie while flashing a peace sign and smoking a cigarette), get the rack with the attachment for the fuel jug).

    Make your own so you can modify it for your needs. Lot cheaper also.

    $3,799 for a 2019! Is that a normal price for a brand new - new year model from a dealer? Was that before all the dealer add-ons?
    If that's a fairly typical deal for new I think I'll stop looking at used models.
