Default Gray from Brisbane Australia

Just purchased a brand new Vegas 8ball and loving it, perhaps a little too much as I wanted to keep it in the loungeroom with me!

I do need some help though on sourcing a quick connect backrest and rack system for it. Spoke with BDD as I like the look of their racks, but they are not quick connects. Anyone have any ideas for me?

Grasshopper is what I use,when riding solo,
price is right and it works, it's mount fits under the passenger seat though.
On and off in a flash, as far as racks go, well if I ain't got a passenger I can just occy strap stuff to the back seat, stuff that won't fit in my saddlebags that is.
Picked up a carton of beer for the boys at the Burleigh Bars a while back and it fitted perfect between the two backrests, didn't even need restraint.
Welcome to the Forum by the way.

Good stuff... What a perfect set up to wedge in a slab with no restraint required!

Only had the bike for a week and toyed with the idea of saddle bags, rear rack, passenger backrest, fork bag etc as there is nowhere at all to store a brake disk lock even. Think I have decided on a rack and backrest combo as I am a gumby with tools and would end up causing carnage taking a rack on and off when needed. HAve really hit a dead end though trying to find anyone that does one. And decided on a little fork bag for locks, wallet, keys etc.

Have a closer look at my pic.
I have a leather tool roll strapped to the back of the pillion backrest, it carries all the basic tools wrapped in a beanie, plus sunscreen etc.
Saddlebags are Pakistani throwovers off Ebay, rugged leather and cheap, bolted to Easybrackets.
Whole setup can be removed in 5-10 mins if I wanna run solo.
Not that I do that often though it's just too handy to have places to carry stuff.
