Asking for a DRZ, (they still don't have a great site I've found) I'm asking g about hard cases. I may just get a tail case not sure I need Saddle bags, and something that is not going to break easy, I would like to hear about people that have had bags/cases hit the dirt and how they held up, thanks.

+1 on this...fast forward to the 1:33 mark to see just how much abuse they can take (spoiler...they get run over with a 1/2 ton truck).

Wow $300 for side racks, anything that's not so darn expensive, also what tail case does Mule make one

What would you consider a reasonable price. Most of the quality racks worthy of supporting hard panniers are in the $275+ range.

Ya I guess, I know but I'm a metal fabricator and I can tell ya they probably cost around $5.00 to make them.

Hell yeah! Maybe you would like to take over making them for us?
I'd love to buy side racks for $20 wholesale. :BevButt:

You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you just might find
You get what you need...
