    I'm planning on using my TW for long rides, which will include camping. I need a rack that will support the items needed for camping.



    My question is, which rack will be the best for this, a Moose rack, or the Cyclerack? I'm thinking the Cyclerack will be the best choice because of the weight, but I don't know what the Moose rack is capable of.

    Cycleracks.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    The Moose racks are just rebadged TCI racks. I have a TCI Sequoia rack on order at the moment. They just redesigned both the Sequoia and Denali (Moose Expedition) so now the lower side bag supports will be removable but the vertical side pannier supports are still welded on. I also like they way they relocate the turn signals so you don't need to shorten them. TCI told me they will be blowing out any remaining inventory of the original styles soon. Their website doesn't reflect the redesign yet but I asked about it when I saw their KLR page mentioned it.



    I ordered this one because I already own some Cortech Sport bags that were designed for this system.



    Here are a couple pictures of the original Sequoia with and without bags. They don't have pictures of the redesign uploaded yet so just envision this with a removable lower platform:







    A TCI rack would save you a few dollars over a Cyclerack after you factor in the optional panniers but the Cyclerack should hold more weight due to how it mounts to the frame. Cyclerack appears to have a loyal following here and they will powdercoat it in a different color if you want for additional charge ($20 I think). Either should be work for you.



    Just thought I would post this since nobody probably knows about the TCI redesign yet.

    Since the Moose racks only bolt up to the rear fender area, can they handle the weight like the Cyclerack?

    I don't think so, rear the sub-frame is pretty weak on a TW.

    I think I'm gonna get the Cyclerack! I plan on doing some long distance riding/camping with my TW.



    Do any of you know what the weight limit is for the Cyclerack?

    Excellent choice, I don't know what the weight limit is, but I haul everything I need for camping pretty easy.

    The cyclerack will handle more weight than the bike safely will.
