Thanks!

The tail bag was installed by previous owner and is a Nelson-Rigg CL-1060, according to the label inside. Underneath appears to be a plastic plate - not sure where he got it - with screws going through both the plate and bag into the factory rack mount points. It's been nice but I miss having a full top-box so Givi SRA7401 rack is in the mail. I've got several monokey cases, collected over the years for bikes and scooter, so this one will, too. Though she'll never be quite as sexy as without

Also I don't know why but the under "belly" covers on all the ones I've seen are always aluminium and mine are black. Have to take a closer look... maybe a PO painted them

I think part numbers are
460.1.355.1B Belly pan (R.H.)
460.1.356.1C Belly pan (L.H.)

I got mine powder coated black, along with the exhaust heat guards. Set's it off nicely.

Thanks, that is an Altrider rear rack with 1" spacers to clear the Sargent seat.

I guess I was going a little too fast and traveled back through time. At least they had gas
