I have the PMB rack and love it. Its all cut out of solid billet aluminum and is strong and high quality. I don't duel sport but it's nice on long rides.

I really like mine. It's sturdy and looks great. But I have to admit that I have not really carried a load on it yet.

I really like the PMB racks like you guys have.. had two on my old XRs. They are really tough. Be careful with your subframe though.. The rack can take loads of weight, but not the subframe.

the PMB rack on my old XR650L... rode through AK with my wife 2up.. when I got home my subframe was cracked (luckily it was steel so I welded it back up and gusseted it)

I can't decide if I want the Cycleracks one or the PMB.. the cycleracks looks ugly but it takes the stress off the subframe for the larger loads. the PMB is super light and is better for lighter loads. HMMM

The frame on the 2012 is different by less than an inch for two mounting points. I'm contacting cycle racks to work something out.

I like both of these, but I could barly get my fat ass over my fender bag as it is. So I have to keep the canvas bag mounted to my plastic fender till I drop some lb's. damnet all to hell anyways...

I have the PMB rack also and love it... great rack. only downside is the price. not cheap!

if you only need some light carrying capability and need a better price, this one doesn't look too

bad for only $79:
