New toprack

Finally finished the production version of the top rack. It is made of .75 dia x .049 wall steel tube for minimum weight and designed as a truss for maximum stiffness. The OEM subframe on these bikes can't take large bending loads so the rack attaches to the same lugs on the main frame as does the subframe. Final weight is 9 lbs.

A top view...



Here it is with the 34L RTE soft bag. A smaller bag is in the works but not yet available ...



Here it is with Wolfman Dry Expedition bags...




Also, finally installed the exhaust pipe guard. That thing sticks out there a bit...




Now, time for some testing if it will ever stop snowing....
