seems like shipping it will make it difficult to sell, so it will probably be here when you're ready to get it. I've used it since the photos, but other than a little road grime it's good as new. I purchased another rack system, so it will come off once it arrives.Oh cool! I'm about 170 miles away, not bad. I probably couldn't make it for a couple weekends, but would be interested in riding over, installing it, and riding home with it.
