Poor Mans luggage rack

The girlfriend insists that she needs more room for our upcoming trip to Delmarva Bike Week. The price of the Saddleman bag I could handle. It was Harleys price for the luggage rack that led to this build. Now, keep in mind I don't plan to keep this on the bike when we're not using the bag so I'm thinking I'll just paint it black. Total cost was less than $15.00 .

The rack is nice, but the vette behind it is way better.

I built a similar rack a couple of years back and it has traveled over 20K miles on various trips. When riding two up on a trip, the extra room is needed.

Just paint it black and go, won't be seen much with the bag on anyway.

I like the spoiler things on top of your side bags. Those are cool.
