Looks great! Really wanted it, but the fibreglass rear cap won out.

Please be sure to ratcheting strap or something else besides bungie cords. I have a very similar set up and lost a bike last summer. 1 bungee cord broke and over time the bike bounced over support and on to side off highway. Didnt think it was possible.

Oh yes we had a locking ratchet strap over both bikes also. It is the yellow cord over the top.

What is the weight rating of the bike rack. I was wondering if it would hold 1 or 2 small scoters?

My sabres listed at 450lbs static weight.
I'd imagine it to be close to that as it looks an mounts identical.

My sticker on the back of my 320RS above the rack says 450#. My Kymco 150 scooter weighs in at 250# so that still leaves me enough room for my MIL back there; I have to use a lot of tie down straps, though.

My rack is slightly different than that one - wheels on bikes sit in a channel not between 2 sq. tubes. One thing I bought to help was a set of these to keep the bikes from rubbing together and scratching/damaging each other. Just put between the top tubes.

Rec-Rac :: Add-a-Bike Separators

They are adjustable to 10" and work well.
