i still send guys to your site , it helps to have a unbiased opinion on this rack stuff, Hope you dont mind me giving your name out there, mike

Hi Mike,

No worries at all with sharing my name. If I wanted to remain "invisible", I should never have started a web site (or gotten a social security number) ;>

By the way, I'm *very hopeful* that I'll be taking the DR350 on a good long portion of the TAT this summer. Your rack will be very useful.

Regards,

Gregory Bender

I just got an email from Cycleracks and they are ready to go into production on a rack for the DR350. I had one of their racks on my TW200 and thought it was a great rack. They are really great people to work with as well. I already got a rack for my DR so I'm not in the market, but thought I'd post this here.

I have the smaller ManRack I bought from an inmate here a month or two ago. It tried to fit it on one night, and I couldnt get it to fit on right, I'll probably need some tweaking to get it to fit. I didn't spend much time though, since it was getting late. Maybe its just my bike that was a little tweaked, since other people havent had any problems with theirs.

Thumbs down

I have a 99' with the airbox mod,jet kit, and aftermarket pipe. If I have the bike bored out to 435 will I need to alter any of these settings? The bike runs good as is, but would like some more power when I gear it down for commuting.

The Borrego Rack is also a very nice product, strong and room for a large bag.
