I don't know what the 2010 luggage rack is like but I had no problem mounting a Givi top box on my 2004 rack.
On the temperature gauge what you are seeing is normal. Yes it has a thermostat but so much air passes through the rad the temperature doesn't gets up there unless it's in stop and go traffic.
If you want to have the engine run at a steady temperature all the time you should install a Thermo-Bob. I did and i wouldn't be without it here in Canada. Even on cold 5C days my bike runs at the same temp as if it were 30C. Google it for all the info or do a search here.
Welcome to the forum. BC is a great place to have a KLR.
