    The bomber strap is a cool idea, but kind of crap if you care about the paint on your tailgate. Even with the handlebar strap in place, the tire can still rub the tailgate, and its not like the bomber strap is exceptionally cheap.

    After watching this thread so long, I concluded the best tailgate pad for the width of the 3rd gen tailgate is the Yakima gatekeeper. Has a big window for the camera/handle and is designed for the wider tailgates of modern trucks. I have not used it a bunch so I have not posted up pics or any review yet, but so far so good. I doubt it would work with a tonneau cover though, at least one designed to keep water out.

    Just tuck the handle flap up and behind and it won't block the camera

    For those with RCI racks, they recently released a bike mount. A small thing, but something I've been looking forward to, as my 1up rack should attach via the U-bolts to the side of my RCI aluminum rack with no issues. Also their 15% off sale is still going.

    Rode my bike for the first time yesterday, didn't make it 10 feet before running over a broken bottle, D'oh! Thankfully it did not slice the tire open and I had a decent ride.

    I’ve seen a local 3rd gen with factory trifold and I think a Fox tailgate pad. Talked with the owner, it worked fine he said. I just got my freebie Dakine pad to work with my Tyger soft rollup, it closed, but barely. We’ll see how it works.

    Mine will not close on either my evoc or my race face pad. Either way it doesn't really matter, as there's no way the bike would fit in with only 2 folds of the top. You can fold the top all way up and hold it out of the way with the small Braces that pop out But then you can't see out the rear window period

    The Dakine DLX fits great and has an opening for the camera -- it's what I am currently running.

    https://www.dakine.com/en-us/bags/travel-bags/bike-bags/dlx-pickup-pad/

    I wish Raceface made the a new pad for the third gen tailgate. The Raceface style is an awesome pad, but it doesn't fit on the third gen properly. The older gens had a thinner tail gate and the pads go on both side properly. You basically end up with the inner padding on top of the tailgate and the frame strap becomes a fork strap...

    Ugh, everything is wet here. Gonna have to go scope SOMETHING out to ride. I'm loosing my mind.

    Gonna toss fresh meats on my DH bike tomorrow and take it in to get the derailleur cable replaced.

    Bronson got a fresh load of air in the fork yesterday night. Figured out why it was so squishy last season even at full lockout...supposed to be 121PSI for my riding weight, it was at 61 when I checked :eek: #oops

    The rear camera flap can reach over and clip to the top, but I literally just tucked it under it I like this look better :)

    Definitely different compared to road biking. Trying to get adjusted before doing some read dirt riding. One thing I can guarantee is that I will have plenty of falls. Lol

    Happens to the best of us. Attack position is key, and helps prevent going over the bars.
