Just recently picked up a set of bolt on trailer tie-down loops for my DR650 and wanted to write about them.
http://www.manracks.com/#!dr650/c1cvf

My handlebars are really busy and packed with all sorts of thing and so yes I can get a tie-down around a spot, but it's tricky when I'm holding the bike up as it's loaded on the trailer. These are mounted in their own spot and so I know I can get to them fast and have the bike strapped down quickly.

They are very beefy and stainless steel to boot.
I removed the 2 lower bolts from each leg (1 at a time) put these on and re-torqued the bolts to 22 ftlbs.

I went with the loop in the upper position so I could keep the side reflector. Before tightening the bolts I pushed the loop down and out as this is how it will pull when I have it on the trailer (i'll get those pics when it warms up some more).

Overall extremely pleased with this mod as it will make trailer tie downing that much faster and easier.






I also was sent these nice soft luggage strap loops to check out for say Giant Loop or other soft bags. If you don't have passenger pegs (and thus a good tie off loop) or have removed yours this is a bolt on solution to provide a tie down spot.

Some bikes have no pegs but have the rear sub-frame bolted to the main frame and thus the lower front bolt location could be used (with spacers/washers if needed).

Over-all another solid sloution piece from Manracks and built just as well as the tie-down loops.

I sent you an email from your web site about availability of the standard Utility rack. It seems like I can't add it to my cart. Whats the word on that.

And I could use some reviews of both the wide rack and the slim rack.

sorry bout that , i keep forgetting to update the quantity in the page i added 20 more , the Rubicon is a great rack , very handy
the utility can carry gas , the BBQ can carry a wide soft bag
I don't think that any of these will effect your riding

You won't notice the wider rack at all when you ride, but it will protect the sides of your bike if you dump and if you ever plan on touring you'll need the width for a dry duffel.
