2014 Giant Loop
 
“. . . There is something heartening about a group of adventure riders down the street who have the vision and technical expertise to create top-shelf, functional motorcycle gear every bit as good (maybe even better) than their corporate rivals worldwide.” - Kit J. Vercella, January 2014, “Kit And Caboodle,” BMW Owners News magazine

Very pleased with my Mojavi + Coyote Dry Bag for the longer trips.

Nice set-up! Like how you're using both the Dry Bag and Tool Pouch in combo on the MoJavi Saddlebag. Thanks for posting - we'd love to see/hear more about your adventures. Cheers!:freaky

2014 Buckin' Roll Tank Bag - Complete & Center Only Options
 
http://giantloop.smugmug.com/Motorcy...IMG_5972-L.jpg
New for 2014, Giant Loop's Buckin' Roll Tank Bag has been completely redesigned, making it fit virtually any motorcycle make/model and fuel tank combo.

Named for saddle pads used by rodeo cowboys, Giant Loop's Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag keeps all the essentials handy and out of the way when standing on the footpegs, making it the Tank Bag for those who don't like tank bags!

The Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag consists of three components, which can be used individually or in any combination: harness, center Tool Pouch case and Pannier Pockets.

http://giantloop.smugmug.com/Motorcy...nted-front.jpg
The new Buckin' Roll is available in two configurations: COMPLETE and CENTER ONLY. The photos above are the COMPLETE option, which includes two 2-liter Pannier Pockets.

Here's the CENTER ONLY option:

The Buckin' Roll Tank Bag - CENTER ONLY option is just the ticket for carrying a few small essentials.

We're in the process of getting our website update, but in the meantime, the 2014 Buckin' Roll Tank Bag is available in our webshop in both the CENTER ONLY and COMPLETE configurations.

If you're concerned about scuffing or scratching bodywork or plastics, get a package of Giant Loop's Vinyl Protective Film and install it beneath the Tank Bag's contact surfaces.

would the great basin or the coyote work with the factory panniers on a 2002 tiger?

Cool bike!

Depending on how much gear you need to carry, the better options may be:

Fort Rock Top Case - For riding 2-up and carrying gear for two - 84 liters. Rides on top of panniers and tail rack, wrapping around pillon.

Tillamook Dry Bag - 38 liters, double ended roll top access, 100% waterproof.

Rogue Dry Bag - 17 liters, double ended roll top access, 100% waterproof.

That Tillamook bag looks very cool. The rogue looks to be a little on the small side. It there a middle size? I think the Tillamook
and a 24-28 liter would be perfect!


also, are there any adv discount codes? :)

If any of our Northern ADV Riders are at the Vancouver Motorcycle show stop by the PSSOR booth, I have a great selection of stuff to check out. I'm sold on the soft luggage and for my March trip to do the new AZBDR (and bits of the UTBDR) I have chosen GL as my bags of choice. The new Buckin Roll is an awesome fit on the F800GS. I've run a Mojave on my dirt bikes for over a year, I can't say enough good about this bag. I also have an older Great Basin that works great solo, but seeing SWMBO enjoys getting dirty with me I went to hard luggage, which is great for paved touring, but places weight farther out than I liked doing the COBDR and WABDR last year. So, I have a brand new, as of yet fitted set of Siskiyou panniers. I was going to lash them to the rack system, but decided I wanted them in closer and tighter to the bike. I also purchased 1 Tillamook bag and 2 Rogues. After getting them I decided I won't need all three, I thought my Redverz tent would take up all the room in the Tillamook-wrong!!!
Needless to say, I am a GL Rider, I'll leave the poser/clone/copycat stuff alone:deal

Also, do the Tillamook and rogue come with mounting straps?

No, they do have a daisy chain for lashing points. I also bought several of the Pronghorn straps, works great. Double ended, no more emptying the entire bag for that thing on the bottom. My plans are to use the Rogue for clothes, and sleeping gear. The Tillamook will hold my tent, sleeping pad, stool, camp axe, shovel, and assorted tools. To balance the load I have a 3 ltr MSR water bladder. ADV on!!!!

CBA191 feel free to contact me for pics/thoughts/testing of the Fort Rock bag.

I give that bag a SUPREME rating both on the KTM 640 and the beemer RT. Lots of 2 up mileage and more to come in May.:lol3

Last July I did a write up with pics here in Vendors/ Giant Loop.

Contact if you wish more gale

The Dry Bags may be bigger than the photos suggest. I can fit my sleeping bag and pad in one Rogue and my tent/poles in a second one. My whole sleeping kit fits in a single Tillamook. Also, the Tillamook's 38 liters is the MAX volume. By simply rolling down the ends you can easily make it half the size - easy to expand/contract.

For scale, here's the Rogue Dry Bag strapped behind the Great Basin Saddlebag:

Here's the Tillamook Dry Bag strapped to the top of the Siskiyou Panniers:

For straps, our Pronghorn Straps can be chained together to lash Dry Bags:

And we're also big fans of Rok Straps - especially for larger, heavier loads:

Great stuff. Those Pronghorn Straps are awfully strong. I had a factory bag break its hardware halfway threw the WABDR and used the Pronghorn Straps as the only thing holding on one fully loaded KTM saddle bag for over 500 extremely rough and fast miles.
I was more than impressed.
