I was able to strap a very heavy toolbox to the back of my v-strom and haul it all around my property. Such an excellent soft rack.
I do feel I'm going to have to get a side case rack at some point, but combined with enough backpacks, duffles and dry bags, this has been perfect solution for my regular rides from FL to VA.
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.
