Just finished mine last night. First test ride was this morning and it worked great. Still have a little finishing work to do (sand and paint). Once I learn how to post pictures on this site I'll post some. Long story short, it can be done and safely.
I used the passanger peg on the left side as my front attachment point and built a L shaped bracket to support the rear of the rack. The bicycle mounts up kinda beside the motorcycle which keeps it lower and from acting like a sail which can happen when you mount them up high on the rear rack. I run a trunk too, so the rear rack mount wasn't an option. I can see it in the mirror when riding but it does not make contact or come near touching any part of me while riding.
