Hi gr8ridn - the support bars are primarily if you're running the 45L Large+, or 62L Extra Large top case, or are running a smaller top case and want the additional reinforcement of having the whole system tied together. Holan has the Adventure rack available as a combination luggage rack/top case bracket as well as just a luggage rack, with the latter probably working better for what you're describing.
Any other questions, please let me know.
