I did a long trip last year where we camped some and did hotel rooms. We did something similar by strapping the camping gear to folding chairs, then bungee the chair to the bike. It saves a ton of time.

It cost about $100 for the plate and lazer cutting. The powder coating I had done with some other stuff. But minimum charge usually for powder coating is $30 - $40?.

Talking Pannier Boxes and Tank Cover

I made the 50ltr Panniers: The lids come off, fold out the legs and make a perfect surface for cooking and biers.
I also made the Tank cover: I'm in the process of replacing the tank with a GS Adventure one and sometime down the road I'll make another tank cover with removable side pockets. After I scratch the paint.... Lol....

P.S. Goto "Let's see your R1100GS!!!" page to see my bike with my new Tank.

Tool box behind L. rack has all sorts of room for tire repair and syphon hose, spare alt. belt and things. including
sardines and Eatmores. lighter and flashlight. Handy when things go wrong.

The roll about thing under the C. stand was easy to make helps in a small shop.
