Black Dog luggage plate

Take a look to www.blackdogcw.com. I use several rear plage and this one is awesome, specially if you use the 2GL Rotopax.

CJ I will get my bag out and take a few photos of my set up for your suggestions in the next few days.
Thanks Ken

Zen overlands rock is the business, I had the first one sent out and out it through it's paces on a run out to Mongolia and back, stood up to all the abuse I threw at it and was used to lift the back of the bike etc.

The purpose of putting a crease in a flat sheet is to increase it's resistance to bending, however it looks a bit rubbish and gives something for a bag to rub against that won't do in my book.

The Zen Design BDCW (and CJ designs, but that lc8 logo is a bit garish for me) are 6mm thick, some of the others are not so thick

Thanks for the props guys - we greatly appreciate the support.

We have also increased the size of the perimeter holes to accommodate larger strap systems, including cam buckle straps as used on the Giant Loop bags. In addition, the rear rack is designed to accommodate our winch carrying plate provide additional versatility. We have shifted the winch towards the rear of the plate to allow for room for a soft bag towards the front of the rack.



Please let me know if you have any other questions

Oh yeah, ours are made in the U.S.A. as well!

Thanks again for your support
Kurt

I've owned both CJ's and Black Dogs racks. They're both great looking and work as advertised. I wish Black Dog still offered the ole " Large ' version of his rack. The one that ran about 4" along the side of the pillion area. Hurt like hell when you cracked your knee on it whilst swinging a leg over, but the tradeoff was you could stack a ton o shite on it. Thing was the greatest impromptu kitchen table ever!!!

We still make our "large" rear rack but now we have increased the size of the perimeter holes and pre-drilled it for a Rotopax mount.

I'm on my sixth LC8 powered bike and this is the best Rack I've ever had. Mind this was prior to them there Motopaki or whatever they call them fancy gas cans, or Warn winch mounts. Anybody remember who made these? I thought it was Black Dog as I had one of his skid plates on this bike at the time.

Just a point of clarification - our rear racks are 1/4" thick (approx 8mm), not 6mm as stated in the previous post.

Kurt
Kurt I don't claim to be an engineer or a maths whizz but I make a 1/4" to be 6.35mm? Which is a nominal difference over the 6mm of CJ's rack when compared to saying something is 25% thicker, one could even think there was a little 'licence' being used to push sales.
Both seem like good products (so I know the manufacturing tolerances aren't that far out of whack)

WOW - totally brain fade on my part. Thanks for catching that. Didn't mean to mislead anyone. I will correct my post. My brain obviously doesn't work very well on Mondays..

I went out last night and sipped a beer and took another stab at mounting my bags to the CJ Rack and found it really was not an issue with the size of the slots at all. It worked out great and I have put 1000 rounds of 5.65 ammo and a new AR 15 in a box on the rack and it worked great, it is very solid!. The guy at the gun shop took a picture, he said it was the only time he ever had anyone ride off with a rig like mine.
