Cost of the racks isn't a issue, it's just from the picture I question the durability of the racks. Has anyone had any experience with these? The bags definitely are well made.....
I have Dirt Bagz Ranger bags/frames on my KLR250. They have been in service for two years. I have laid it down several times with no damage. So far, I have had the good fortune to avoid any epic crashes. If I crashed hard enough, I bet they would bend or break. I suspect they would fare better than me though. I'm going to outfit my new (to me) DR with them.
