    Get the flat one. More options on what you can put on it and where you want it sitting

    Mine came with the humped model, if I had a choice I'd get the flat one for greater top box mounting options.

    The flat one is just more versatile. The hump limits where a box can be positioned and depending upon the box size you might not have the seat room you require. With the flat back you can easily move the box back some to get the room you want. I doubt there is any difference in the strength between either style. It is just preference and usability and both are the same price. I just bought new racks for both my TW and the XT225. Don and Marc went out of the way to make the XT one in the flat style which they had never done before and I do believe it was me who suggested to them a few years back to loose the hump on the TW ones for those who don't want it. Both racks installed perfect and are lined up just as they should be.

    The humpless actually has the same bend going straight back. Looks better IMO and protects the taillight.

    One thing that blows me away with the Cyclerack is they have some kind of deal with UPS. I ordered mine on Monday and it was here on Wednesday all the way from Idaho to NY in break neck speed.
