Still don't even have an ETA on my bike yet but I'm really liking this idea of this system because one of my concerns is possible overloading of rear stock rack and I can't help but believe your setup would be stronger. I plan to run Caribou 34L top box and Caribou side cases but on occasion may run soft luggage if a more rugged ride is planned. I would like to Know how much of a weight penalty your complete system would be compared to stock as that weight would be high up on the bike. You might consider posting stock unit weight then your unit as a whole also weight that can be removed if/when not needed (side handles & mount bolts , Luggage pockets ) I'm liking this idea and the more I see the higher this moves up on my desirable farkle list. Going to start ordering as soon as I get a somewhat firm delivery date on the bike from my dealer. edit: just reread previous page and noticed your comment about luggage mount pockets didn't say they were removable so if not that weight wouldn't matter.
