    View of Alberni inlet from Macktush creek campground, some 35 km from Port Alberni on Vancouver island. The inlet opens to the pacific about 5 km from this spot.

    This one called for a detour. Even though it's owned by a friend of mine I didn't have his number or I would have called. This road is normally open but someone must have forced his hand.

    That is the famed BBQ rack, no longer produced. Nope, no issues with the Tusk pannier racks and even retained the factory grab handles.

    I think I might have had to get longer bolts, but I usually replace hardware like that with stainless in the first place so I can't remember if I needed the longer bolts or not.

    I would be willing to sell the rear rack if someone wants it.

    Thanks for the reply - I've been debating on whether to fab one here at the shop, or cut a piece of decking (and paint it with a gray marine coating) or buy one outright, which would be of course the easiest solution. Currently have my panniers mounted to provide a level plane across which to strap a dry duffel, but a rack has been in the back of my mind as well.
    Appreciate the pic - try not to roast up there, I don't envy the heat you're having.

    Personally, I would go with something like the JNS rack that clamps into the OEM luggage rack and there's one other that's very similar (PMR?).that looks good. I like the flat surface better for my needs/use compared to this one which is almost all open. The BBQ rack was on the bike when I bought it.

    I like the OEM rack alone for $100, it's pretty versatile and simple using soft bags or a box. I'd clamp a cutting board on top if I needed more width for a long trip or something. I use a Givi box mount currently if I want a flat surface instead of bars.

    My custom cutting board on the stock rack is hanging tough so far...:D I had a hard left crash this week that really rung my bell, but the bike did fine. I tucked my blinkers in up under the board which helps too. It ain't pretty but it is always covered with bags anyway. I hit hard enough that I had to sew up the corners on both Biltwell7 bags due to the weight of tools etc. ripping the wire ties from the plastic kayak loops hooked to bags.

    Here is a tool I have used to fix many items...clothing, gear, bags, shoes, tarps etc. I highly recommend it. Just don't poke it thru your fingers!

    Maggie Valley from earlier in the week, just for you (I drove by the motel and it looks nice in the outside BTW).
