I, too, have the PLR on my '09 Wee
The mounts have been on since I bought the bike in 2014 and are solid as a rock. They have been removed a few times for riding bike without cases or racks but mostly come off for full clean-up and/or maintenance at the rear of the bike.
Would recommend. On that era rack, the red reflectors at the corners of the license plate mount can be bent at a slight angle and kept in place (see area just below date in attached picture). Not sure about the newer versions.
Overall, very happy with the GIVI gear...the little pads that hold the cases to the bike will wear over time and need some attention. Other than that, zero issue with the PLR racks or the e22L side cases. Still looking for an older pair of e36L for 2-up touring.
