Thanks for pointing out the differences. As I mentioned, I did not know what they were. Your points about the harness and towing capacity don't matter to me because I will only be transporting two bikes . The point about the fit and freeplay, etc might very well matter to me. I certainly will consider your product although I am not fond of having to cut material out of the gravel guard and would have to factor that into the cost of a replacment. For me, the ideal solution would be an internal mount like BMW has for the previous generation X3.
