My thinking is kind of strange! The placement and reason for the Rack Loops is extra tie down points to secure my auxiliary fuel bladder and other stuff (such as tent and sleeping bag). The rear mounting was so I could clear the turn signals. And the mounting point is super strong as its mounted on a "fender gusset" up against the composite subframe.

I'm using this bike as an ultimate ADV weapon!

Can't have too many tie down points I say!
