Another springtime afternoon in central FLA tooling around the lakes on my Secteur Elite . . . The more I ride it the more I enjoy it!

Looks a like fun ride! Been considering adding an off-road capable bike to the stable to join friends on their weekly Alligator Ride (truly amongst alligators, wild hogs, an other assorted swampland wildlife) over gravel/broken pavement paths that were formerly used to service agricultural irrigation equipment. Tried it once on a hybrid road (Giant Escape) bike with 38mm tires and it about beat me to death!

I agree. I hadn't noticed it as I only just put the racks on 30 minutes before the pics, but not sure what to do to fix it. I will look into it.

If the stays are slotted, you can loosen the bolts that fasten them to the rack and slide the rack up until it's straight and re tighten. Bending the stays is acceptable as well. I've done that lots of times when there was no other way to get the rack to sit level.
EDIT: I made the assumption that you have strap type stays. If they are the rod type, disregard my reply.

Rod type I'm afraid, so may have to resort to delicate surgery.

My wife expressed a casual interest in trying that "bike thing". I dug around in the parts bin and came up with this. Honest,..... if she likes riding, I'll spend a few more bucks on her.

Simply OUTSTANDING!!! I won't even attempt to beat your mileage record. I can only hope that I'm still kicking (and pedaling) in another 25 years!
