We have DirtRacks, as you say. They are well built and work perfectly with the Pelican box and Wolfman luggage. Time will tell how well they hold up, but I won't always be carrying 15 lbs per side... The powder coating is thick and durable, and the welds are clean.

A real bargain, IMHO.

Good to hear. I like the side racks and want to use the wolfmans as well. Like their rotopax rear rack but also want to keep my grab rails.

Did about 100 miles today on local fire roads, never got more than 20 miles from home. Sure beats when we lived in the Bay Area and had to ride for two hours just to get to dirt!

Doing some spring bear hunting. Have spotted a couple, passed up, one.........but, probably not going to fill my tag this year.

If you look close, you can see my front wheel has a pretty good ding in it, from hunting this year. I have really worked the dr, and am very happy with it.



Found this skull, completely intact........small bear..........but neat.
