Me and my SO are planning to do few medium distance rides (300mi one way) and want to check about some options to carry luggage on the bike, which are comfortable for 2up riding. I have never tried this before and would appreciate some inputs on how back racks or side racks would work for 2up riding on scrambler Icon.

You might want to avoid the throw over bags, I'd think the straps across the seat would be a bear to sit on for any length of time. Maybe something like the Hepco & Becker kit?

I went the cheap throw over route, but I thought H & B looked impressive, at least on paper.

Depends on your budget and weather you want/ need hard luggage. I think a topcase for passenger is almost necessary. Check the above mentioned hepco & becker sitefor a rack and topcase.

Scroll down to see the rear rack options. Scrambler
Hard cases here: Hard Luggage
With H&B, it's a matter of matching topcase and rack, they don't all work together.

Also, GIVI has hard side cases that are 30liters each, but expensive for the whole set, but no rear rack.

Ducati sells a rear rack:
SCRAMBLER, ALL, Ducati Scrambler Rear Luggage Rack

as does AltRider

I have the Scrambler Classic side bags. They look good, but are very small and expensive. You also need to buy the racks that go with them.
The Urban Enduro Bags are the same size but waterproof.

Finally, SW-Motech legend Gear. If you choose the The LC1 and LC2 do not require straps but do require the mounting racks.

Oh, and the other issue is making sure all of the mounts work together. ie, the side racks don't interfere with the rear rack mounting points.

Thanks for the replies. Rear rack with a duffel bag and few straps sounds like a the cheapest and best option.

Pulled the trigger and ordered this one today. SCRAMBLER, ALL, Ducati Scrambler Rear Luggage Rack. I spend way to much money on my bike. Probably need rehab. lol Going camping for 2 weeks on my Scrambler. Got the legend gear LR2 Tail bag and the LT1 tank bag. Started planning for this 2 weeks ago. Yesterday discovered I need more room. Got the Redverz solo tent and I'm planning on strapping it down on the luggage rack. This should give me the room I need. If I pull that big tent out of the LR2 bag it will free up a lot of space. I find myself running out of time. Gotta make this work. I leave on the 20th. Going to be riding the Ozarks and hitting camp grounds along the way. Excited as hell.

Ok. Got the luggage rack installed but having a hell of a time getting the screws back in the fender. Not much room and can't seem to get the screw started on either side. I'm not much of a mechanic.

You might try loosening all the bolts so the whole outfit will flex a bit, don't tighten anything down until you have a good start on each of the bolts. Those that go in at an angle can be tough sometimes, for sure. Good luck, and let us know.

I really like the Legend Gear. Fits well and looks good. Seems to be very durable.
I've been using sw-motech for a year. Mounting frame doesn't look bad, the bags are very good looking and the seams are strong after hard use for a year; but the colors faded out within the first month. It does not like being exposed to sun at all.

Bolts in. My son managed to get his fingers in there and get them started. Torqued them down last night. All set to leave on vacation Friday. Thanks for your suggestion Sarah. :)
