Hello Ron. I trailer the NX on the back of my 5th wheel camper. The gearing helps at the high altitude. Also at 66 years of age, I don't need to go as fast as I used too.

The holes for the rear of the rack are in the turn signal brackets. 88 89 have a built in spacer. On an 88 you need to use two aftermarket spacers, about an inch on each side.
