    Man, great looking equipment, if I hadn't just bought a rack from jared Skaggs 3 weeks ago, I would be ordering one, can't wait to see what else you bring out.

    Edit: oh. And go ahead and put me down as #1 for the 12 volt outlet bracket. I have been contemplating how to do this for a few months now. Solved.

    I'm really glad you and your back are enjoying it! I had the elusive stock rack on my bike when I purchased it. I just never could warm up to the thing. It was always just too small.

    I strapped my modified $9 Home Depot Husky bag on the rack for our last ride.

    Luggage setup was solid. I'm looking forward to our pannier system though.

    put me down for a rack.

    I usually home brew my racks, but I don't have the time, and your product looks great and simple, and will reduce weight over what I would make.

    Rack system looks good. Hopefully it will mount up with my promoto rear rack. It all uses the same mounting points, so I'd imagine it would be fine.

    I know this is a long shot...

    but is there a chance we could get a few of the rear racks powerdercoated in something besides black. I know I know... That wrecks the price on the batch.

    :hide

    Just thought I'd ask.

    Hey guys,

    Sorry I haven't been very active the last couple of days. Just been running crazy trying to get all my duck in a row so we can ship these things.

    As for powder coating different colors, what colors would you guys thinking? White? let me know and I'll see what it would do to the price. We could probably run two different color batches.

    As for other news, I have all the hardware in as well as the little bags to put everything into. Robert almost has the website ready to go and is working on an instructional document for installation.

    I am having the tubing bent for the pannier racks so I can get and actual frame tacked up and fit test everything.

    I have worked on all the other projects as well to some extent.

    The racks should go to powder coat tomorrow!

    I just stumbled upon this thread and I read through the whole thing like a giddy school girl! I actually had to re-read the title a couple of times to make sure that what I was reading about was actually for my DR350. I totally agree that there is insufficient support for our awesome DR350's and will be looking on in great interest. The frame guards and saddlebag racks look especially awesome. Now, if you could only fab up an oil cooler kit like was optional from Suzuki, that would be a game changer. Keep up the great work!

    I know polarice is the one who threw out the idea of multiple colors instead of the black. My choice for a second color would be a silver/gray steel color. Looks good on the TCI Borrego rack that is sold for the DR. Very universal color and always looks good. I definitely would not go with white.
    My 2 cents

    Got my rear rack mounted today. It's awesome!

    Of course, the process started slowly because a bolt wouldn't come out.
    My friend brought over a breaker bar for that bolt and stayed to help.

    Got it fitted up and checked out how it will mount.
    The pug was there for moral support and to guard the property.

    The turn signal wires on the right side ended up being too short (the rack mounts the signals a little further back) so we spliced some wire in and made em the correct length.

    It was too nice a day to roll the bike into the workshop, so set up outside
    Pulled out the drill so I could widen the holes in the storage tubes where the signals mounted.

    She was a big help

    All done! Looks great!

    That's pretty epic to have to use a breaker bar on that bolt.

    Glad to see it installed well for you. Hope you enjoy it.
