Looked like a great setup and was plenty wide for the fat boy tires.
Also note in the 2nd & 3rd photos with the extension, that is the rack for a 1 1/4" receiver adapted to a 2". Most of us get the 2" model rack since that is the receiver size on Escapes. I would be nervous that the 1 1/4" with adapter would allow too much movement on the back of a trailer. My 2" is so solid it acts like it is welded to the bumper.
I must say the black anodized version looks pretty sweet. I thought about it at the time but couldn't justify the additional cost.
