I've had the SW-Motech racks on my F800GS for almost two months and about 1500 miles now, and have taken them off about 6 or 8 times. No problems with the durability of the quick release mechanism. But I suspect that they won't hold up in a crash as well as the more solidly bolted on racks will. Of course, I'm only guessing. I bet I'll find out for sure eventually, though.

Here's some close up pix of them on and off the bike.


I'm tryin' ta think, but nuttin' happens!
