Happy Trails SU racks...WOW

So I just received my SU racks from Happy Trails before they send my Teton aluminum side cases. WOW are they beefy! This is the most solidly built piece of bolt-on kit I have ever purchased, and I've had several pieces of GIVI and SW-Motech stuff. The racks alone are just shy of 20 lbs. There goes my weight savings by getting rid of the stock collector/cat/muffler! Can't wait to get the Teton cases. Going camping tomorrow, but will be back Sunday to install the racks. Will post of a review on the process and result here.

I've had a set of them on my V-Strom and my Super Tenere, and I'm a big fan.

Happy Trails SU racks went on the V2 today without any cussing. Like any of these bolt-on accessories, it helps to put it all on loose, then begin by tightening and then torquing the smallest fasteners first (generally), and then finish up with the larger fasteners. They build their stuff with fastening holes and slots that allow for some wiggle room. Quality build kit. Can't wait to get the Teton 9" Cliff Cut aluminum side cases on Tuesday. I'll take some photos when it's all done.

I have them on my DR650 and Dl650 and swap a pair of Pelican 1550's back and forth as needed. HT is great to deal w/ and the racks are top shelf.

Also a Agri Supply tool tube is a nice bolt on addition on the inside of the left pannier rack.

Happy with Happy Trails...

Top notch quality in construction, fit and finish. Nice discount on price with included extras. Quick build and ship. This company scores top marks with me!
