Default Luggage Rack

We needed a luggage rack for the Sky, and there are not a lot of accessories for this car available.
While I was in the my shop suckin' on a cold brew, I looked at my Electraglide and saw the luggage rack for the Sky.
It is Harley part number 56665-87, Premium Tour Pac Luggage Rack. I also am using my T-Bag Supreme suitcase, that is made for the Harley luggage rack, and propery packed, can carry a weeks worth of clothes for two people. If you need to know what properly packed means, get some training from a soldier. The T-Bag comes with a raincoat. Any hanger clothes can be laid flat in the trunk, and still get the top down.
The installation is not for the faint of heart. Drilling into a high dollar paint job is scarey. I measured a half a dozen times before drilling, but it is done. Pictres of the finished product. What do you think?

Now how are you going to see that cop behind you?

Just teach the wife to pack light.

Never try to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.

Who cares about the cop behind me...........
Actually, it works real well. On a recent road trip, we ran top down, and even though I couldn't see out the center rear view mirror, the side mirrors were good enough. As I do on motorcycles, if I wasn't sure, I turned my head and looked.

That's interesting that the Harley rack fit so well. The Kappa rack, as you know, is almost 3x the price of the Harley rack.
