I've noticed a lot of racks in the US use the seat mounting points to mount the racks: Just a personal thing, but I don't like the idea... to take the seat off, you'd have to completely unload the bike.
That just about nails what I was trying to say , and yes Gadget they do like to bolt to the seat for some reason..... I copied their style but had it hooked to the rear bolt holes in the E frame. It's strong and capable.
