Looks great. What brand of rack is it?

One caution - do not overload it. The large, flat top of the 49L case flexes quite easily, and will eventually form spider cracks around the mounting holes. Trust me on this one.

'13 Dark Graphite Metallic K16GTLD, 24K miles and counting...
'09 Magnesium Beige Metallic K13GT, 60K miles miles and counting...
'02 Mauve Metallic K12LTC, 106K miles and sold
BMWLT#145, IBA# 366, MOA# 111996, SCMA# 24032

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

It's not the inside that matters, as all the force is downwards. I put larger washers and flat rubber pads on the topside of my trunk which helped, but there is a limit.

What does your camera bag weigh?

As you can see below, I seriously overloaded mine. Then later I noticed the cracking. I think it's light cracks on the painted surface only and not on the inside shell, but still I thought it best to mention that possibility.

I'm not sure I just ordered it the dowco roll bag small, 14x 8x6 so I think it can't be that heavy. not quite as big as that . I would figure it was the paint that was cranking.in that case if it does , will try to source out a paint that that will except some kind off pressure
Oh I if you look I did install big washers and rubber on the top part of the case, now you got me thinking if I hope I didn't tighten them too much.
