If you want to go full bagger and have KTM's 1190/1290 Adventure or Adventure R, then this is the carrier system for almost every available side bag out there. It's sturdy, and because it's essentially the same design as the 950/990 you know, it's proven. We've crash tested the 950/990 version and know just how durable it really is. This carrier will be just as awesome.
As always process went with no issues.
I haven't had a chance to put the rack through the paces but I can say installation was dead simple on my '16 1290SA. I had to bend one of the arms about 1/4 of an inch to fit the mount holes on my bike but that really wasn't a problem at all. It looks great and feels solid enough for what need it to do. I mounted my Mosko Backcountry 35s to it with no fuss whatsoever. Took me about 30 minutes at a snail's pace.
