I should have purchased this product years ago !! Ive had a few different bikes, street and dual sport, all would have benefited from this system. I don't like products that are not transferable. Hard racks and such are great but the expense per motorcycle is crazy. If you wonder if this is right for you, you will agree as soon as you strap it on any bike you own. This next season I will use the Uprising Soft Rack on my DR, my FJ09 and on top my SherpaX bike trailer. I can already imagine the issues it will solve from rides in the past!
This soft rack, combined with the snake kits and dry bags, makes a fantastic luggage system with minimal weight and price. Great quality and design.
This product is amazing. Use it everyday and there are no signs of stitching pulling loose, well made. Thank You for an excellent useful product.
I was tired of hitting my bum on a hard metal rack when taking my DR650 into dumb bumpy terrain (almost all of New England;) So I took a gamble on the Uprising Soft Rack.
* Installation was easy. Since you are dealing with straps and cam buckles, mount points are endless. Was able to work the rack system into my setup without fuss.
* Cam buckles closet to your bum, that I thought would become pressure points, are not at all. This coming from a 6'6" tall man with a wide load.
* DAMN does this thing hold the weight over rough terrain. Tool roll in my review pic is ~10lbs or ~4.5kgs. Rack side strapping did not sag or loosen up during a grueling 20 mile enduro loop.
* And of course the yellow color pops just like the bike does:)
I'll be recommending to all my riding friends. As well as extolling the racks virtues to the helpless passer by. Hope you enjoy too;)
Impressively well made. The materials are very heavy duty and the metal pieces like the rings and camlocks are very beefy. I actually said "wow!" Aloud When I opened the package.
I used the rack for two camping weekends so far. The first loaded trip the rack loosened just slightly which is either from breaking in or lifting the bike from an inverted sidehill tip over but once I sinched it tight again it hasn't loosened in weeks I'm 100% confident in the rack. It's a great system that's extremely versatile.
