I see some side racks and maybe a tank bag in my future as this set up in the photo below really didn't pass my "shake down test". In other words, I would not recommend loading down any tail rack on a DRZ400S like this, especially not for off road scenarios! I don't think the bike's tail frame is up to the load, not to mention the high center of gravity. All good reasons to order side racks, eh! ~Jeff

Jeff, thanks for buying my rack and posting up some pics, especially the second one! I'm glad the rack worked well for you! Looking forward to getting some side racks to you when you're ready. - Tom
