even though he did not say, shadyrascal is selling these for use w/ oem rear rack for those that need a strong and large rear rack. he really has a nice great simple & effective design that is sold at a very reasonable price. i have one of the unavailable ebay bbq racks but if i needed a dr rack i would get his.
that botton one is perfect for touring as it's wide w/ a rear lip support for a dry duffel bag. after tour you can then unbolt it and use the oem rear rack for daily riding.
