    Opinion on a front rack??

    I have been debating on geting a front rack that sets above the headlight, the one from manracks.com. I would like to have a place to put my lunchbox and extra lighting since i work afternoon and ride home at night. any suggestions or opinions?

    Opinion on a front rack??

    I have the manracks on the front of both of my tw’s. Works great. I have a little wolfman bag attached to mine where I keep a first aid kit. On the other one I have the same bag and my girlfriend puts her small purse in it.

    Here is a pic of mine.

    x2. Manrack above the headlight is always my recommendation.

    Not really, at least I don’t notice

    I've got a front (and rear) manracks on my bike. Never actually used it as a rack yet. Looks cool. Great handle. Fantastic crash bar.

    That reminds me of a scene from the "German Forklift Safety Video".

    Isn't that Bruce Campbell's T-Dub??? All poor quality jokes aside...is there another front rack that goes OVER the headlight besides the ManRacks?

    I think the other racks go below the headlight making them useless unless onky riding daylight and off road, i have used and abused my front manrack and towed a friends bike a DRZ400 with 300lb rider up a hill off the rear rack, so i recommend both front and rear
