    Thank YOU Roy, I'm glad you like it. It would be great if you could post a pic of your DRZ with the rack loaded up with gear sometime. I'm always curious what kind of luggage riders are using with my rack. - Tom

    Hi Tom, This rack looks awesome! I've been looking for one for my new DRZ and I think I've found what I want. How much for the powder coated rack with the Rotopax mounting option and bungee tie downs?

    Bugsy, the price with loops and the RotopaX option is $114.00 US plus shipping. I haven't shipped to Canada yet, so I will get pricing and let you know how much it is. Thanks, Tom

    Tom - I've got a shipping address in Minnesota I use for US stuff. I can have the rack shipped there. Just PM me with payment details if you could. Thanks my friend!

    I had to make a minor modification since I have the Wolfman side racks on my DRZ. No big deal, but I had to violate Tom's good work just a bit to make it fit the way I wanted it to. Sure looks good installed! Very nice rack Tom.

    I just got some racks back from the powdercoater and have 9 of these left. They all have the RotopaX option and bungee loops.

    It's 14" X 14" and will hold a RotopaX fuel pack and a large tailbag, drybag, etc.

    If you are interested in making any up to fit the DRZ400E, I will have a bike within a few weeks. I am about 45 minutes north, if you need a test mule. I'd be perfectly willing to let you use the bike as test bed and pay your very reasonable fee.

    I also have an '07 KLR650 that would look very nice with one of those. . .

    Canuman,

    That sounds great! If both of your bikes are in stock configuration in the rear, then I can make the racks for you for FREE.

    If your bikes are not stock in the rear, I can still make you some racks. I'll send you a PM Later with my phone numbers so we can talk.

    Thanks, Tom

    The manufacture of a rack for the E model would be a huge deal. I'm sure there would be a ton of E owners (myself included) that would be interested.

    Good to hear this is happening and please keep us all updated!

    Just a plug to say this is a great deal for a great rack. It is well designed, well made, and it has just the right features. I'm loving mine...

    Tom,

    I have both the DRZE and the KLR650 ready to trailer down your way -- please tell me when you'd like 'em, and in which order.

    Tim, I have two railing/gate projects I'm doing right now, and I should be done with those in about two weeks. Then I have a DR650 to make a rack and side racks for. As soon as I'm done with those, I can do yours. Will that work OK for you? - Tom
