That's exactly why I never used mine lol. The TRS is great! My bike came with the Sato hooks on and I was too lazy to take them off.

Cool idea but thinking of going Pitbull if I can bring myself to get transport other than the bike itself...

TRS > all

The first time you have to load up in the rain makes it worth every single penny.

That said, OP, I have seen those hooks used a lot at various track days and never heard anything bad about them.

How much you want for them? TRS is on the list but for now I'm hauling in the back of the truck. Id like to have the rear hooks for just in case I have someone trailer the bike/make me feel better hauling in the truck with the rear secure.

Actually i just finished making my own. Added a ram ball to mount my gopro and on one side a screw to act as a hook to hang my helmet off of. Seeing as I made them myself and didnt spend any money on them, they were a great addition
