Another option

Edit: looks like c2c4c replied first

Besides those mentioned by elkins above ..... there are also the Happy-Trail Racks (Both side and top) available ... which is what Nick is using for the Pelican Cases in post #207 above

I never get tired of how folks make the DR their own. Part of the fun of the bike for sure.

Aleeoop - always impressive & your Moab report had some great shots. Still on my list.

I think a trailer like the Moto-Mule would be awesome for hauling camping gear to the campsite, unhook, set up camp and do day rides. It could be good for road trips too and it appears that the bike would handle better without having all the weight on the bike as you said. I'm looking forward to seeing/hearing some trip reports with the Moto-Mule. It looks like an excellent design.
