Anyone seen or heard of something like this?

So my buddy with a 2016 Ultra. Added an aftermarket bags and fender then took his tour pak and mounted it to a new tour pack bracket. He has had this on for a while well this weekend on a 900 mile trip this happened.

I have never seen or heard or heard of a piece of metal snappin like this

Two questions: Was it a knock off from ebay or something like that, and did it have the plastic spacers on the front mounting points?

This is why I tell my comrades that if a life might depend on it, just get the Harley version. Some of them don't listen though because they are cheap. Harley has been doing this for decades so you know they got this shit down to a science, the ones on ebay would most likely be trial with error. No doubt it's a knockoff or bad install.

There's something you don't see every day. I have a HD detachable TP as well, it is a really snug fit. How much weight was in/on/against the pack?

It was bought online, I think the Harley one was 200, this was from HogWorkz I believe for like 150. I am not sure if the spacers were on there. He had it loaded pretty good and then his wife obviously leans back. It looks like the metal just gave out. I get the whole knock off thing. But where is the line drawn right? Like if someone said this was good and it was not Harley is it a knockoff? Like is the price the point at which we assume something is a piece of crap?

He is coming over tonight, I have to see this in person.

Damn, that is weird ...(doubly so considering where it folded at)... Just out of curiosity, is his Ol' Lady a power lifter that squirms around a lot?

Scarlet Red 2010 Road Glide Custom named Trixie - She's a flashy little minx..
Basic black 1981 Tour Glide Classic named Alice - She's a sleeper project.

All kidding aside, that would have been some bad shit if he was carrying a passenger.
