    I did a search, and also looked at titles back for 2 years, did not see this addressed. I am a big guy, 295+ish and 5"9", when I ride with the wife, she is pressed up to my back some, and would like some room, does anyone make a bracket to extend the tour pack back 2 or 3 inches?

    This might help but it also depends on the model!

    You may be able to slot the mounting holes in the bottom of the trunk where it mounts to the bracket to gain some room?

    Some fabrication may be needed but I don’t see any issue moving it back a little.

    the back of the tour pack brackets are bent/molded inward, so slotting the holes would not work without taking off the metal in the back. still thinking on this though. Thanks

    If Rusty Bones rode a '14-'16 H-D, then the video would be useful. But he rides a 2012 CC.

    The reason why I posted the video is it fit what he was looking for as far as style, perhaps not model but since motorcycles trunks are similar in size he might be able to retrofit it to fit his rig as a last option!

    I think I may have found the answer here, but still need more info from mastrblaster, I believe his moving the pegs option is probably the bes suited for me, I looked at the slider snobnd, but that option would require far mor fabrication than I am good at, my welding sucks... lol
