My .080 5052 aluminum and bag hardware should be here this week. I will spraybomb my rack tomorrow and let her dry. Speaking of the rack, my estimation of weight is way off. I'd be fired at the circus.
Uh.......holy crap! It weighs in just under 17 lbs. Oh well. It is what it is. It's going on the bike. I knew it was overkill at the onset, but i just had to push ahead due to the KLR cheapness disease. I didn't want to actually go out and buy 1/2" square tube. Now I pay the price of making a heavy bike heavier. I'm good with that.
