Pannier frames

Greetings, I am a new owner of a 2011 KLR650. I feel the need to put a set of pannier racks on my new ride. Is there a general consensus amongst seasoned owners as to what the best racks are?

I probably won’t even mount anything on them I just want the extra protection afforded by racks on the rear.

What say you?

I now have the Tusk racks, which I think are pretty good. Here's some general stuff about racks, luggage, and top plates.
