    I have had my rack for awhile now! I'm currently on my way to Ushuaia and the rack is holding up great! Started with a 26lb Mosko 40l Duffle on it and did a fair bit of off-road. I have adjusted the load a bit and all my camping gear currently sits on it! Here's my thread. Thanks for making a quality piece of equipment!

    I'd be keen. I try to have my heaviest cargo in a duffel on the rear seat, but I do use the top box to load some gear and with the leverage it has there is a danger that the plastic OEM rack could crack. I'd rather trust in stainless steel that GRP. I'd also like the rack to be black, it would look better.

    My AT is the same colour as yours:

    It definitely could do with a nice SS rack!

    Whoaa....I too bought a rack so I could mount my Givi E55NT. Even wired for the Admore Lights. Still haven't used the set up. Even removed the Altrider rack since then.

    Here's a video of the lighting.

    Count me in as someone who wants a rack too! Pre-order or Buy-it-now, I'm very interested and would send cash now if needed!

    Never received shipping notifications or notification of completion of my rack. Paid half of the invoice up front on pre order and was told I would be invoiced for the rest of it on completion. So am I stuck without a rack now or? :/

    My mistake. I didn't transfer your info to the customer list. Your rack was sold inadvertently. Your deposit has been returned in full and you are first in line for a rack when they become available, and at a substantial discount to compensate you for the mix up. Again, my apologies.

    Hi, are there any plans to have another batch of racks produced?
    Or is there another thread for this topic maybe?
    Thanks

    I am Also interested in one of these if at all possible. Us guys with the "old" model bikes are going to be screwed now since no companies will want to come out with stuff and the redesign fixed some of the issues.

    I'll take a rack that's unwelded and un-coated, if it makes availability sooner and cost less? and I don't even have my AT yet!

    Just cracked my existing subframe, due to weak design. I would be keen on your unit. 2016 AT. One thing can you use the OEM panniers?
