I installed the OEM luggage rack and brake light early on. I wanted something additional out back and looked at a bunch of different options before landing on this as my final set up. The install is a bit of a time consuming job because you basically need to uninstall and reinstall the OEM rack and brake light again. It also takes a little planning because if you have the OEM rack and brake light installed your wiring harness is installed to the bike so a little extra care and thought must be taken in the disconnect and re-connection of the trunk assembly harness wires.

The Goldstrike light bar fits perfectly and blends in to the overall look very well IMHO. I do wish however they would have made the turn signals amber to match the Honda turn signals and to stand out more from all the red. Just a niggle, overall I am very satisfied with the look and function.

Looks really sharp! Thanks for posting the video. I (actually, my wife) bought me the Goldstrike Tour Blade. Can't wait to install it when it gets warmer around here.

Thanks for the video. Looks great. How long did the install take you?

Thanks, it took me a couple of hours. I am really slow with this stuff. Measure 12 times drill hole once :smile2:
Hardest part was figuring out which wires to plug into on the harness. The instructions say match up the wires. Well, they don't match so I resorted to a magnifying glass to see the actual plug they used in their instructions photo and that worked.
