I bought a used 2015 DL650A which I love. I live near Seattle, and it rains a ton, and the soft bags that come with my motorcycle don't cut it when it comes to the rain. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the rack that is on the motorcycle is the stock rack for the DL650A, or if it is for an aftermarket case? If it is aftermarket, do you know which ones, so I can buy them?

On a side note, I'm also looking for tires that are more road oriented (I'm only going on some light dirt roads -- maybe 2% of the time), so I want tires that are more street oriented, and are good with the rain. My shop recommended Scorpion Trail II tires -- anybody have experience with those?

Thank you!

Rack looks like OE.
I'm running Metzler tourance next tires, work just fine. I'm sure the Pirellis are just as good. There's a big tire thread on here somwhere with tons of info.

Michelin Road 5 or Metzeler roadtec 01 would be my choice in the conditions you describe, sounds a lot like Northwestern Ireland. hard to tell but looks like the racks you have are for the hepco becker cases.

Not sure what mounting system that is, but it is not the set for the OEM hard cases for 2015. I THINK the post about them being Hepco Becker may be correct. Good luck!
