Had this for a few months now and it’s a great little system. I ride with my kids so I pack a small tool kit and the Green Chile tow strap and recovery system.(hated the weight in my pack) They stay strapped on perfectly with 2 of the Green Chile bungee straps. I also pack my ms170 saw around with ease when cleaning up trails. Also packed my tipi and stove with no issues. All around great little system and I don’t realize it’s there when I’m riding hard.(with just tools, tow strap, and recovery system) Pictures show with my saw on, straps are tied up when riding, saw just sits on top. Also very easy to install.
Hardcore Soft Rack
I really didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a bulky bag system for our new DR200 so we could camp. We do ultralight backpacking and often find we have a simpler take on things. Also we're in high desert and not everything needs to be waterproof. I was especially psyched to think that the frame itself could include tire levers.
The rack fit easily. We are delighted with the top quality of all the parts. It fit great out of the box.
I did modify it slightly, but that's to maximize luggage on our tiny bike. I sewed a little more webbing onto each of the side straps to extend the daisy chain by 3 more attachment points and hacked an ammunition pocket to hold our givi jerry cans so we have 5 L of water balanced on 2 sides sitting on the passenger footpegs. Although the DR200 is tiny for an adventure bike, we can now fit at least 20 L side bags above the water in addition to a pack or two behind the seat.
Thank you so much Green Chili for providing an elegant solution to packing motorcycles.

Cinch this guy on there tight and it stays. Nice and sleek with good quality materials and buckles.
