This is the best solution I’ve seen for smaller dual sport bikes. You can strap just about anything to it and it also makes a great anchor point for bike recovery. If your looking for a luggage solution for your DR650 you can’t go wrong with this system. I would also recommend getting a set of ADV SUSHI to help manage straps or attach items to your rack that are too small for the straps.
It works great so far - mounted everything I wanted. Feels solid. Now I need to ride and see how well it works - - after the COVID restrictions are lifted.
The most important aspect I looked for in a luggage system for my KLR was value (NOT lowest price, which is not the same thing...). The Uprising system had by far the best value for me - I found it to be very well made, mounts solid, is extremely flexible, holds anything in any configuration you can imagine, and I saved $200-$300 vs. a hard bag system with panniers and racks. That’s win-win-win-win-win for me!
It worked so great on my dualsport continental divide trip I bought a second one in a different color for my other bike. Super high quality straps. Keep up the great work.
You want to use your motorcycle besides a small sunday ride? From grocery shopping to travel around the world, the softracks and aspecially the Uprising Kit will transform your favorite maschine into a mule. Best mod i did to my bike so far.
And not to forget: Really fast shipping around the globe!
