Looks like it's between the AltRider and SW-Motech, similar prices and similar looks...
One difference between the two systems:

Altrider will attach a Monokey case, but the attachments are bolted directly to the rack. SW Motech uses a quick-release adapter plate for when you want to add on the Givi, H-B, etc., case.

Altrider
+ Case attaches more closely to the rack so sits lower.
- Case mount hardware stays on the rack, it's no longer flat on top for carrying items.

SW Motech
+ Adapter plates available for multiple systems.
+ Quick release mounts are under the rack, leaving the top flat for cargo.
- Adapter plates are an added expense.
- Mounted cases sit slightly higher due to the adapter plate.

I've no skin in the game; bought SW Motech because I already had their rack/adapter/case for another bike, so this makes it a simple thing to move it from bike to bike.

Hope you find a good product for your needs.

those Givi mounts come off that AltRider rack very quickly if need be.

the carribou system leaves you the largest flat rear rack for dry bags and such when the top box is not in use.

I just purchased the SW-Motech rack w/ the Givi Monokey adapter plate and the Givi Trekker 46L top case for my Tiger 800. It mounted easily and looks great. I haven't tied anything down to the rack directly yet, but seems to have some good tie down slots. If you need more, SW-Motech seems to make another adapter plate for soft luggage which may provide a wider platform for loading stuff onto it.

The only complaint I have about the quick release adapter plate for the Givi case is that the case seems to fit a bit loose and rattles around a bit while riding. They provided rubber pads but they don't seem to be quite tall enough. I've alleviated the issue a bit by gluing on some rubber extensions made out of old bicycle tubes. This takes up enough space to make the top case not rattle so much.

Hope you find what you are looking for.

It's pretty close, but I want one a bit bigger and with more tie down points.

Basically I want to be able to either use a trunk or have a kick-ass rack that will hold a lot.

Design and make/have made, your own. It only has to be just a simple flat alloy plate with a few slots and holes to suit. It can be as big/small and trick looking as you want.
Here's a picture of mine which has been used and adapted to 3 different bikes. Yes it looks beaten to death but it's be around a bit. You can see the bit's on there for my GIVI cases.

jblk9695 - Was the exhaust side bolt on stanchion clamp your problem too ? Trust you saw fbj913 post on remedy ? blacktiger - from evaluating clearance, appears your suggestion may work. But shorter bolts would also be a cure. Bolt ends protrude about 3/8" past the Nylock nuts when tightened down. 1/4" shorter bolt would do the trick. May just hacksaw mine & call it good. But will first await response from pic & email I sent the HT folks. Thanks all! j

I made my own rear rack also, no holes to adapt anything to just yet as I was using a Wolf Tail bag. Will be getting one of the top boxes made by the guy in Romania so might make up some sort of quick release set up. Found a file for the Triumph logo that was easy to convert for my small CNC mill to add the finishing touch

I'm sure they do, but when I attach stuff like rear racks and mounts, I always use locking agent on the bolts, and torque them properly. I personally would prefer not to have to disassemble and reassemble each time.

That is a great size and the Triumph logo is a perfect touch.

Thanks. I think its glass-filled polycarbonate, I scrounged it up a while ago so not sure.

nice work.
i assume you strap dry bags inline with the bike as strap holes only on the sides?

New Windscreen today. Took about 15 minutes to install. So far so good. It's the Givi 6401DT.
