    You can get a Honda Ruckus gas cap that locks.

    It sounds like there is no discomfort for the rider who may be a bit taller and sits a bit farther back. The Dale's Rack would solve several issues for me and I never ride 2 up so it really doesn't pose any real downside other than leaving the gas cap exposed.

    Might have to look for a locking gas cap?
    The Ruckus locking gas cap is interchangeable with the NC.

    Dale also sells one along side the rack.

    I'll be throwing money at him this weekend for a rack. IT will also help solve some packing issues and allow me to take a more comfortable sleep system without sacrificing time having to unstrap everything to fill up. I have been heming and hawing about this one since I got the bike, time to just get it.

    I saw a guy who made a surfboard rack for the side of his bike. Pretty neat, but I wouldnít do it.

    Just got mine mounted (been away for a bit.) There is about a 1.5 inch gap between the front of the rack and the rear of the saddle. I havent been out riding with it yet, but I didnt even feel the rack when I was sitting on it in the garage. I do have a different seat than the original NC (Shad), so that could be the difference.

    I am gonna love this thing for trips where I need to carry more gear. I can strap the pannier bags (which strap over the rear seat) and not have to displace them to fill up. I can also strap a few extras like my camp chair on it, again without having to remove it to fill up.

    I do recommend getting a locking gas cap, whether it is from Dale or another place.

    Made a 2 hour ride today with the new rack, and didn't feel it at all. The old panier seat I always felt on my tailbone, and after a full day of riding it got to be a literal pain in the ***. I don't see this rack doing that, even though the front of it is not padded.

    He sells the locking cap as well, with 2 keys. Must have, IMO

    Yeah I ran the rack for years, with an auxiliary fuel tank and never once felt anything behind me. I also never ran a locking gas cap, but then again I guess I've never worried much bout someone siphoning my gas?

    I donít use a locking gas cap on my Dale rack either. The bike isnít unattended all that much (unless itís in the garage), and the tank only holds about $10 of gas? The cap is around $40-50 (according to google)? Gas gets to $10/gal Iíll consider it.

    Stuff a rag in the rack’s hole and no one would even know there’s a gas cap there.
