Does anybody have any pictures an/or comments of a Pakit on a 2012+ ?
Installation and quality comments are what I'm looking for.
I am seriously considering one, but have only seen them on pre- 2012.
Thanks.

I have the Pakit Rak on my 12. I have the version that mounts to a receiver hitch. Mine has thousands of miles on it and have never had an issue. In fact it was originally mounted on my '04 before this bike. Had to get the manufacturer to send me a new bar to add 2" to the overall length so it fit the new rear fender. I don't have a picture here, but can get one this evening. My wife and I use the bag on trips where the bike stays home. Adds a considerable amount of carrying capacity for items on longer trips. I highly recommend them from my own use.

Was able to get a photo ot Pakit arak mounted to the back of my 12. Only down side is the license plate is hidden. But I've never had a problem with in all the places I've traveled.

The Bushtec hitch rear piece can be removed. The bolts are not easiest to get to so most people either put the bike on a stand or lay it on it's side. Laying it down is the easier of the two modes. Once you've done it, the laying over gets easy.

I have the Pakit Rak on my 2012 Wing without the hitch option. Very easy to install. I don't have a photo of it installed however here is my modification so the plate is visible even with the rain cover is installed :
