Re: LT Trunk Rack
While I can appreciate that you have concerns about what will happen to a 9 year old passenger if someone slams into the rear of your bike, I would highly doubt that the luggage rack would be of any greater concern than being launched into blacktop oblivion. I guess I can see what you might be referring to the rack being flush on the goldwing. It is really more of the back rest sticks up so much further than the lid of the trunk. On the BMW if your passenger were wearing a helmet, it might actually act more like a head rest in a car, in fact you might even be inclined to apply foam on it to cushion it more for that purpose whereas the goldwing you wouldn't have that wonderful feature..
here is a photo of the same rack on the back of my old 2002 goldwing
