well 56renegade - I must admit my bike cares an awful lot about it's style . I actually have the tubular steel rack, but with the new shorties I put on - the overall shorty look is much better with nothing on top of the rear fender, so now I have no rack on. I've taken to riding with a back-pack for errands and stuff. However I've saved the rack, so in case I go on an overnight trip I'll have a place to strap a small bag.

Things are not always as they appear to be

The overall look of our machines is one of the things that makes riding enjoyable. For you the backpack may be THE answer. You can carry the tools that you want and have room for those errand items as well. Your 'Bird looks the way that you want her to.

I bought the SE because of the seat, sissy bar, foot boards, panniers and I like the look of the long exhaust pipes. I can carry any tools that I want without changing the appearance of my bike. I will be changing the factory bag mounts to the Easy Brackets though. I took the bags off before she went in for service. It gave me a chance to ride bagless, but the mounts look awkward empty.
