Thanks Scoundrel. I had a feeling you would come through. And so quickly too. I believe i saw in another thread that you mounted a dry box in your bed. Were you able to mount some bolts under the panel to give an anchor for your box?
I'm going a little stir crazy here with all of the rain (damn drought anyway), waiting for a good opportunity to go and ride. So I'm occupying myself with the forum and stuff in the meantime.
I did anchor the panel a bit. I didn't put anything on the underside yet, just some lag screws down through the plastic. With the panel's tabs holding it down in the front, and the grommets holding the pins in the back plus the lag screws for reinforcement, I think it will be OK. I will have a can of bungees along just in case I need to tie it down and replace the lag screws with bolts and washers later.
We don't have an issue with threadmancy here.
Old threads have valuable information for new people, as evidenced by your question.
Never understood why people get their undies in a bunch about posting new things on old threads.
I know it looks like the rear red line is shorter than the middle one.
That is due partly to me goofing the line, and partly due to weird camera angle stuff.
But trust me, the rack gets wider toward the rear, and the measurements are 36.5", 39.5", and 41.5" as you go back.
The depth varies because it is bowed, and has that instrument cover in the middle.
Most of the rack is 13" deep, but it narrows to 9.5" in the center.
Keep in mind also that the front rack is also the hinged lid of the front storage compartment, so you might not want to mount anything on it semi-permanently - at least nothing heavy.
