Rack with Happy Trails Panniers?

I just got some Happy Trail panniers for my 1st gen, and I'm wondering who has the same setup and also a back rack. I didn't see one for my model on their site, and I was just checking to see who had what, and what fits. Pictures would be cool too. Thanks dudes.

If all you have is the racks you can buy the Tusk brand aluminum Panniers for half the price. At Rocky Mountan ATV the set goes for for 224-249 depending on color and size. then purchase Happy Trail pannier mounts.
