The SU (Structurally Unique) Rack is designed for use with soft or fixed luggage of any type and is the mainstay of the Happy Trails aluminum pannier system. Racks for this bike incorporate our fifth generation design built around a plate mounting system.
The plate system avoids several known issues associated with tubular mounting arms and provides mounting holes with an exacting tolerance of .010", ensured through computer numerical control (CNC) cutting machines. In modern CNC systems, end-to-end component design is highly automated using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) programs.
Benefits of the SU Plate Mounting System:
Efficient clearance of exhausts
Slotted mounting points for ease of fitment (both horizontally and vertically)
More rigidity than tubular rack construction
Maximum clearance for Inner Utility/Tool/Carrier System
Bike specific rack means no compromise as with universal type racks. Each and every rack is fabricated by our expert craftsmen to take advantage of the existing structural points and design of the individual bike.
Unmatched strength. No one makes a stronger rack and no one offers a better warranty. Our racks are built to take it ... anywhere ... anytime ... in any conditions. True adventure touring racks. When your trip depends on it accept no substitute.

"They just don't have a good enough sub frame" I was explaining to the Sheriff when he was asking where my license plate was. I said" I thought I had it figured out but I guess not, the back end just broke off in this high speed rough section and I had to throw it behind a bush and I will come back later and pick up the pieces."
