Wow, it was neat to click this thread and see this picture pop up:
Doug (my husband) rides this one now and has been very happy with his luggage and tool set-up; he swaps between pelican cases and the Yukon soft bags, and he painted the tool tube a nice manly black.
Now I'm in the midst of setting up another DR for myself and trying to sort thru luggage. The M-S racks and bags are no longer available, but Happy Trails makes the SL rack and Mojave bags:
The Happy Trails DR rack & Mojave kit is about $400
Then there's the nice stuff from Wolfman. The DR rack and Expedition bags are about $400.
Either one of those kits would be bullet proof, I'm sure. But in the interest of keeping luggage weight low and forward, I'm wondering if I'd be better off with the Happy Trails OSR or Ebay side rails and fasten my choice of saddle bags to those. What do you all think??
