If you are planning on riding some tough off-road miles and want durability go up to whatever racks you are thinking about getting, and while wearing sturdy boots pick the weakest area of the rack and give it a few seriously hard kicks.... if it bends, don't use 'em.
One note, try that with the TT racks and you might hurt your foot, BMW racks I think you have a good chance of breaking 'em
