    So I got by Rubicon rack today. I installed it in only a few mins. I am glad I got the wider rack as it looks like it will help to protect the bike more on a fall. I love the fit and finish of the rack. Only thing I have to gripe about... Stickers!! only one little sticker. How about making up a a batch of cool Manrack stickers? Include them in the order so we can make our bikes go faster. :rofl I'll be sporting the rack at the March Moto Madness in Tellico Plains in a few weeks and I am sure that there will be folks asking about it.


    I ordered a rotopax 1.75gal and it should be here this week. I'll post pics of it all in stalled on my CRF250L I hope the 1.75 isn't too big.

    You have been busy. I fell off the face of the earth for awhile. I will be picking up a set of hog legs from you. It seems that when you loop the pig and she lands on her ass that she breaks the subframe. :cry Got it welded up, but she needs some more support.

    I am not in a hurry since I broke me up in a seperate crash. :eek1

    Long story, I did not go to AK, FIL died (Cancer sucks), Went on a little CDR ride with some buddies. I actually crashed their ride. Had a great time on the Really big pig 1200GS.

    I broke the XRL at a Jimmy Lewis class and I did not know it. She just got away from me.....

    I broke me up a month ago. On the really big pig, riding up by Big Sur I did not see the fine layer of sand on the hard packed dirt and washed out the front end. Here is the result...

    6 more weeks on no physical activity then we will see.

    Hey all, don't have time to go through 53 pages, so I wanted to ask two quick questions. Just picked up an xr650L, and am debating on the Rubicon, or the super duty bagless racks. I plan on putting the Wolfman side racks and dry bags on, and wondered if there would be any issue with either of these racks being compatible with the wolfman setup. Also, the super duty appears to be the stronger rack, but I move around a lot on the bike, and have concerns about the side tubes of the rack being in the way when I am way back on the seat. Is that an issue?

    Thanks in advance!

    I've owned a SuperDuty rack for several years. You can slip back all the way on the saddle, and you side rails won't bother you. :D I recommend the SuperDuty rack if you are going to be carrying any significant weight on the rack. :deal

    Just want to say that the customer service was great, and the rack seems very quality, and worth every penny. Still am going to have to see how the wolfman pannier rackts fit, but worst case am going to have to spend an afternoon at the local screw and nut place to make sure I get a long enough bolt. I bolted everything up in about 10 minutes, and it sure seems sturdy. No trips to Alaska yet, though it seems to be able to handle it. Again, customer service was top notch, and it's always a pleasure dealing with the business owner rather than a salesman, as I was contacted and responded to in an extremely timely manner, no matter how many adult beverages I may have had... :) Thrilled to have, and to support a "local" business, and can say nothing negative about manracks. They even still honored the "mention your adv name and get free tie downs" special that was mentioned at the beginning of the thread. Granted, a different design, but still very functional, and very dirtworthy. Did I say I am very pleased yet? :)

    I read through most of this thread & didn't seem to find what I was looking for. I also didn't see it on the ManRacks site. So I'm hoping one of you guys could help me out. What is the dimensions of the ManRacks BBQ rack & weight limit? Also if your bike falls over will it protect your turn signal lights? I'm new to this sport so if that's a dumb queston please give grace to the newbie.Lol I think this is the rack I'm going to go with for my crf250l.

    welcome jeepguy2 , the rack is 16.5" wide and 12" long , we don't put a weight rating on our racks, because most of the time they are stronger than the bike frame , goodluck :deal
