Ok so I am trying to gear up to take the girlfriend on a trip. I have a new 15 road glide. So far I just bought the docking station. I need to have much luggage room as possible. So I wanted to know if I bought the back rest and than the mounting plate for the tour pack if I was able to use them both at the same time? Would like to really buy the tour pack but just not in the budget after everything else I just bought. I know I am getting the backrest for sure, no way around that she will need that for any cursing we do. I know you can get a luggage rack but was just trying to save a few bucks as I thought if I could use the mounting plate I wouldn't have to buy that part later. If I but the luggage rack it will be pretty much useless when I do get a tour pack. Was thinking I could just strap a back pack to the backrest and the plate would keep it off the fender. Long post I know but just looking for ideas.
