I have been looking for some 3/16" rod for tie down points and for the air filter holder but the usual suspects only carry 1/8" and 1/4". While looking over my options and debating making design compromises, I realized I could get several options in much shorter lengths in the hardwear aisle then walked away without buying anything because I already have nails. A bunch of bends and the removal of both ends gives me what I need. Tiedown loops were added to the rack to keep the bag straps from wandering. Loops were also added to the foot peg mounts to complete the Giant Loop integration scheme.
