If interested I can do as before. Order it all and send it to you.

This is where I ordered my Wolfman luggage from:

Steve, thanks so much for your offer of assistance. I have a friend coming for a visit in June and I'm headed to the US in August and plan to bring back all my purchases then. Thankfully I have a few children in tow and get to use their extra luggage :)

I was thinking I'd go with Fandango Giant Loop tank bag. Any thoughts on that? Pros/Cons of the wolfman tank bag? I have the Clark 4.7 tank.

Thoughts on rear subframe support? I see that ManRacks has one.

Don't know about the Fandango tank bag. The Wolfman tank bag is small but nice. I have a template for weld on frame supports.

I have the full Wolfman setup too, and like Steve says the back does bolt into the frame. I'm no engineer, but what I like is that there are two bolts on the plate that attaches the rack to the frame (front part) that I think triangulates the installation - and puts less stress on the back. 3,500 mile trip of easy and not so easy stuff with no problems.

Is there anyway to wire them together so that they both come on at the same time when you turn on the brights?

Have had problems with Viton valve guide seals! Anybody else have issues with them?

Decided I would be cheap and make my own shark fin since my stock plastic guard was cracked. Looks pretty good for a half hour of work, and much stouter than the plastic.

The stouter the guard the bigger the chance of breaking off the swing arm tabs. A reason they come stock in plastic. Don't ask me how I know

All depends, probably with 2 smaller people. I actually never ride 2 up. Guess I'm just selfish that way:

Just position the switch half way between the high and the low position. Both filaments will light up. You can also run your battery dead if you accidentally bump the switch into that position, while riding with your electric jacket liner on.

Hmm, hadn't thought about that... Just modeled mine after the Manracks rotor guard.
