Congrats on the Amazonas Gordon!
Well I've just ordered a set of Givi Trekkers (2x33l panniers + 1x46l top box) for the Amazonas that I'm picking up next week (the first non-Guzzi in my stable for 27 years BTW).
I looked at other offerings and settled on the Givis though I woudl have liked the Hepco Becker Gobis like they had on the Amazonas at the 2009 Milan Show but HB say they don't do frames for any Benelli and the Benelli accessories list doesn't mention them either; must have been a show one-off.
I'll let you know how I get on with these.
The folks at Givi said someone else ordered a set of frames about a week ago for a Tre-K so maybe a trend is starting.
Your enthusiasm, along with the rest of the Benelli riders that I've met, finally rubbed off on me.
Just hope that my Guzzi Griso SE goes to a caring home.
Near Cardiff butt.
10 1130 Tre-k
83 Moto Guzzi SP1000NT
Erm - might of been me that bought the other set of frames, they arrived about 10 days ago, not got round to fitting them yet though.
Oh and by the way there are a set of Hepco Becker frames for the Tre-k on EBAY, if anyone is interested here is the link
or just search under hepco becker
Well that's a bummer.. just ordered a set of Givis and the panniers have alreday been delivered.
Hepco Becker say they don't make anything for Benelli:
thanks for your request.
But we do not have any carrier for Benelli, also not for the Amazonas.
Maybe Benelli built a carrier for your cases.
With kind regards
I looked at all the documentation and accessories lists that I have and no mention of HB racks so I'll drop a note to the factory and see if they can enlighten me or at least get me an accessories list later than 2010.
Yeh seems kind of strange them saying they don't make them, but then they are on Ebay so should be taken with a pinch of salt, would be terrible to get them and then find they don't fit. At least with the Givi ones you know you are getting the right kit and good quality too with the knowledge if there is a problem you can get it sorted, sometimes worth the extra pounds.
Well the HB frames listed on Ebay aren't of Benelli (or HB) manufacture.
I am aware that there is an independent manufacturer in Italy that makes those frames and there may be another who makes frame guards for Tre-K.
Sometimes these come up on ebay.it so it maybe an idea to browse that occasionally.
It was suggested that I just use the official Accessories and Apparel brochure:
It is still dated as 2010 even though the link suggests 2011.
Only Givi and Shad frames are listed.
I bought a Tre K
Got the original? case carrier with topcase
Looking for side paniers.
Anyone know where I can find them?
