Thats defiantly a substantial improvement over the ebay rack. Very well done. I never understood why the guy made his mounts so complicated, your simple approach with the round tube flattened out for the bolts is much better. I have spent lots of time modifying things to work with the old ebay version since the mounting points are an inch or more thick on the sides. Makes mounting side racks a pain....

Thats a nice looking design you have there. I wish it was out years ago, before I bought my BBQ rack....

Thanks,
We are trying to keep it simple for you guys yet strong and long lasting we added blinker relocation holes in the side supports so you can remove the grab bars if you like, we are going to continue the development of the BBQ rack, so stay tuned , all input from you guys is great, thanks again sagedrifter, mike

Hey, nice rack!

I just got back from about a 1k mile weekend trip in the U.P. for Tickfest 2011. The rack preformed very well, no complaints.

IMG00304-20110715-1800

IMG00302-20110715-1800

IMG00301-20110715-1759

IMG00314-20110717-1219

The rack was awesome, just what I needed. I threw a dry bag containing food and various supplies, a tent, a sleeping pad, and a camp chair on the rack with some straps and a cargo net. I slabbed it up 360+ miles at highway speeds with no loss in mpg's. I had a bit of a get off due to some deep sand and the rack definitely saved the rear turn signals and possibly my foot. The rack was solid with no signs of wear and while I am sure it is not recommended to be used as a grab/lift point, it was often used as such. Around town, I just use the cargo net over a dry bag that's rolled up to fit whatever I'm carrying that day.

Mike, thanks for helping me out with my luggage needs. Well done, and thanks again!

I didn't have any problems finding tie down spots. In fact, the design made it very easy to tighten the cargo net and use the straps to keep the gear off my seat. But that's just me...

Well we have sold some BBQ racks , thanks to all who have had input or interest , its still changing as we speak
the outback rack is most popular , we are gonna do a wider version of the outback maybe we can reach a compromise
around 14 or 16 inchs wide.
We can do a 24 inch wide rack, but the cost of labor to make it just goes up and up from there
I cant figure out how the original maker of the BBQ rack made any money, maybe that's why he is not around anymore ? i dont know we are trying to get it right at a reasonable cost,,,,, Forward from here, Thanks guys ......... mike

Pics without luggage

GsVs- I do have pics, I think they are on my other computer. Here are a couple, they're not great, but give you an idea. I will post more soon.

IMG00316-20110718-1950

Aug 2011 bike ride and tire change 017

Aug 2011 bike ride and tire change 021

Aug 2011 bike ride and tire change 024

Other racks?

Jungleplant- I had a friend/co-worker ask if you could do a similar rack for his Victory motorcycle. I told him the story of how the DR rack came to be on my bike. I gave him your name and website and recommended he contact you. Apparently a similar rack for his bike is $400 (FYI). He's looking for a rack to mount on top of his tail box. Just a heads up.

Also, I use the dickens out of this rack and still have no complaints, nor any recommendations for improvement. Well done!
