To celebrate the new Mad Max movie, I decided to go bike camping out in the Nevada desert with only what I could load on the rear cargo rack of my DRZ400. As you would imagine, it was loaded down with a ridiculous amount of gear. Everything from a spare gas can to tools to a sleeping bag was tied up on my stock cargo rear rack. It turns out that was too much strain for the vanilla parts and the rack was wobbly by the end of the trip. It wasn’t necessarily broken, but I’ve been itching to try out a new cargo rack for a while now. I came across this Moose Expedition Rear Rack online and decided to give it a shot.

The installation was a piece of cake, the rear rack was compatible with the holes that were already drilled. Since their tolerances had loosened from my desert trek I decided to drill new holes anyway and patch up the old ones with some Quick Steel Epoxy. The rack itself feels solid but not overly heavy. The steel tubes have a nice powder coating that keeps gear from sliding around on sharp turns and protects them from corrosion. Although it’s a medium sized rack, I was able to load more gear onto than my previous rack, not that I’m attempting any more mad max reenactments anytime soon. Overall a solid piece of gear that took about 10 minutes to install and that’s worthy of the drzparts.com seal of approval.
