I have really been happy with the soft rack system it has made packing up so much easier. Wonderful quality
Just got back from a week long trip from Texas to Canada and back. Wanted a setup that didn’t break the bank, was simple, durable, waterproof and didn’t make the bike absurdly wide. Well it knocked it out of the park. 3k miles through heat, cold, rain and dirt and the setup held up beautiful. Loved I could completely remove the harness in minutes when we wanted to ride after setting up camp. 12/10 would recommend. Hopefully they send me some stickers After this review since I lost mine.
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!
