    Luggage rack paint 2012 R1200RT

    I love my 2012 RT, but one major disappointment is that the luggage rack is painted plastic rather that aluminum. After only one summer of riding, I have several places where the Helen2wheels bags have rubbed through the paint leaving the rack looking crappy. In 45 years of riding I have never had that happen. Does anyone know of a matching silver Duplicolor?

    I use a piece of that non-slip rubber shelf liner between the rack and gear bag to prevent further scratches. I am interested in touchup and/or other solution too.

    Mine has developed some nicks as well. I'm going to spray it with truck bed liner.

    Please read: http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=46055 - imagine how many more people might open the thread who own RT's with that info in the thread title.

    I'm adding it to your title - please do so yourself in future posts to the tech forums!

    Thanks for your cooperation.
