Nice rack

Traveled without a luggage rack last two years. Turns out my grilfriend likes going places. We just loaded up the Saddlemen sissy bar bag and clipped it on. I have classed it up a bit.

Here's the pre-rack setup


And moments ago I bolted on the new "Cobra OEM Sissy Bar Luggage Rack - Tube 02-4468"

I am not "wild" about the tail light shape, just wish it had less of a chrome bezel at the top.

Yes... people say it looks like a heart. But it is plenty bright enough..... and it is very noticeable because of the shape and the shape of the light it emits...

Yes that stock taillight is pretty visible. On a group lunchtime sandwich run today I followed a Victory, last years 8-ball or something. The bikes' LED lamps are in a kind of two-sided split diamond housing. Well anyway, the way it is split I was sure half his tail light wasn't working. If you are directly behind you could see both sides are lit. It's a bit odd and not very big.

I have a Signal Dynamics flashy brake light doo-dad wired in. I feel like that helps.
