Fitting a Givi Box to a Triumph Rack

When I bought my Tiger 1050 it was fitted with full Triumph luggage:

Time to dig out the 5-year-old Givi E360 that has served me so well over the past few years and one or two Sprints.

Firstly, removing the Triumph luggage is a doddle. Removing the fancy sliding-carriage base plate was a bit more difficult as it had been done up so tight that it didn’t slide at all (maybe the previous owner is trying to tell me something here…) Eventually, you end up with the basic Triumph rack:

Even with that amount of adjustability, I still had to drill a couple of 6mm holes in the metal rack to line up with the adaptor plate holes.

Now I can start using my backpack again.
