I have the King Tour Pak with the Stealth Luggage Rack currently, but I am looking for either the Premium Tour Pak Luggage Rack #53665-87 or the Air Wing Luggage Rack #79179-08. Both of those are supposed to match up with the mounting points of my current Stealth rack.

If anybody has one laying around for super cheap, please let me know!

Thanks for the offer. I just found some on ebay for $42 shipped, so I think I am going to go that route.

After closer inspection, I realized that this was not an OEM piece so I decided to hold off. It boggles my mind how expensive these stupid little racks are. Glad someone else footed the bill for my HD Stealth rack. That thing is stupid expensive, and apparently not very useful. Sure it looks amazing, but it is so small, I can't fit a proper piece of luggage on it without overhang onto the painted surfaces of the TP. The wife and I want to start doing overnight trips and make sure we have enough luggage space for all of our gear.

Buy another bike for her to ride, then you will have tons of room. My wife is getting better, but still packs too much IMO. I don't understand why you need 3 pairs of boots/shoes for a one night stay.

She has her own bike and rides it 95% of the time, but we only want to do a few trips together, so no need for 2 touring bikes (yet). Our clothes/toiletries are the least of what I am planning to pack. Mostly other gear for the bike (alternate jackets, bike cover, rain gear, tools/repair stuff, etc).

Our clothes/toiletries are the least of what I am planning to pack. Mostly other gear for the bike (alternate jackets, bike cover, rain gear, tools/repair stuff, etc).
Here is my packing rundown (longest trip has been 4 days):

  • Left Saddlebag-my clothes and toiletries
  • Right Saddlebag-first aid kit, tool kit, rain suits, any jackets/chaps-daycover; my gloves/facecovers
  • Tourpack-my CPAP, 1 set extra boots, any sweathsirts or jackets that wont fit in the right saddlebag, wifes purse and bike bag(her gloves/glasses/face cover/headbands, etc)-cds; sunscreen, maps. usually 3/4 full for "extra" stuff
  • Luggage Rack Bag-All the space the wife is allowed; if it doesn't fit in here she doesn't bring it unless I have room in my saddlebag
Everything the wife needs (a baffling array of lotions/soaps/products) can be purchased upon arrival if she doesn't have room. As much as she hates it, she has learned to use the hotel blow dryer and somehow get by with only 1 curling iron instead of the 5 she has at home. Our first stop after checking in is usually a wal-mart, CVS, grocery store to get her products for a few days. We have even considered the possibility of shipping any souveniers we find home, but so far have managed to fit them all. Hell, the first trip we went on I overpacked, it's amazing how little you really need.
