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!
I ordered the uprising luggage system for my KTM exc-f. They told me to test it out and then if I wanted I could swap it for the hardcore soft rack. I’m pleased to say that I haven’t even thought about sending the uprising back. This is quality stuff that’s so versatile you could make it work with anything. Top quality and great people.
I purchased this setup for my KLR650, and finally got a chance to try it out on a brief journey today. The base is amazingly flexible, yet attaches almost rigidly to the back of the bike. The straps are thoughtfully designed, and secure just about anything you'd want to the top and sides of the base (in my test case a tent, sleeping bag, sleeping mat, and large dry sack). Over 150 miles this morning - including speeds up to 80 miles per hour, gravel and dirt roads, and mud - nothing moved an inch. Even better, the "hot yellow" is a high-visibility color that matches my riding gear! Adam in customer service is great to work with, and I am glad that I can support his company - I can't recommend this system enough!
