    the auction ain't over til it's over but maybe the guy had a buy it now before bids were placed and thats why it looked like a deal

    it's something to watch though !

    I have a slightly used (aprx 200 miles riding) full HT rear rack set with side racks and turn signal extensions etc as well as an unused HT front rack I'll be posting in the classifieds this weekend

    Couldn't disagree more, JMO

    That piece of sheet metal on the TW that the CR attaches to on the frame is not the fault of the CR, it's the TW. I did replace and beef up that on both TW's. Have you seen the loaded up cycle rack on our bikes when we go TW camping for 3-4 days at a time? On their web site is a pic of me and my 2001 TW by the river on one of our Around the Olympic Mts. trips.

    Well I won that eBay bid on the HT set. paid $209 plus $20 shipping which is still a deal. Though I'm not sure it it comes with tail light extension so might need to get creative.wish I had seen your post PlacerLode.

    a follow up question,... which rack do people use when they make a lil following trailer? Is mounting to the swing arm preferred, or if the rear rack, which rack would perform better?
    2018 TW200 just purchased used with only 30 off road miles.
    also have Honda GL500 GL650 CX650 … another great forum like this.
