I'm not saying you can't do it, just that you need to do it properly. If your side-mount rack is well beyond the body and doesn't have lights
, or blocks the mirror, that's not done properly. Unless you loosen and turn the handlebars each time, a typical bike is wider than most of those glass racks.
The handlebars on many bikes are certainly an issue - if the go over the roof (or truck box) the side-mount scheme gets a lot more attractive.
