I have the same rack and I'm very pleased with it - I reiterate everything CB-500-X said.

I have the following top box bolted to it, which I'm also pleased with:

As an alternative to the Dry-Spec, I'd recommend saving some money and going with this:

I've put this thing through the ringer (including being flung off the back at 30 mph on gravel), and it shows no signs of wear. Completely waterproof. The bottom has a rigid floor to it so it will maintain it's shape.

I mounted a Renntec rear rack to my bike last night and it was easy to install.  You remove the existing handholds but you have new ones that should be fine for a pillion.  It seems like a sturdy bit of hardware.  I'll find out over the next 5 days of wandering thru the Appalachians with full camping gear.

Just ordered a Givi E370NA case to mount on this rack.  I'll post info on the installation after receipt and install.............

The whole idea is to retain the original handles. Almost every other rack, and there's a lot of them, do away with the handles. This is the only rack that leaves them intact , as the original question posted in this thread.

I'm still leaning towards the rack from Thailand, it appears to follow the seat plane for pillion to tail attachment with the stock handholds intact.
I am intrigued by the Emgo Travel trunk. I have so many tools and devices littering my garage and workshop that are packed in similar abs cases, my wife wouldn't even notice a couple of new cases. :152:
Cheers, T

it replaces nicely the original handholds
OK again, this thread is supposed to be about racks that do NOT replace the original handles....

Thank you for the info. I am using a small caribou case equivalent with maybe a soft bag strapped to it. I now use them strapped to the seat with roc straps. Nothing heavy, maybe 30 lbs loaded.  Should be just fine. Just wanted to make sure to get someones opinion who actually handled one in person. I might get a dry bag such as dryspec D38 and lay it lengthwise on the seat. With a this rack I will get more room to move around and still use part of the seat so weight wont be an issue.

These are great looking bags. Would there be enough room for a passenger if this was strapped on across the rack?
You own the right motorcycle if you can not walk away without looking back to admire it.

As promised, here are pictures of the Givi box mounted on the rack.  Although the supplied plates worked and I am sure are sufficient, making your own plates out of standard bar stock would be even sturdier.
