The thing that turned me away from the GB is that is seems like the Wolfman bags will give me a lot more flexibilty to strap stuff on top. They haven't came in yet, so I can't comment one way or the other on them.

Like you said the Coyote is great to have, and I plan on keeping it around even if I sell the XR. I'm sure I'll always have some sort of bike that the coyote fits on.
Okay, that's about where I am. The coyote is very versatile for using one other peoples bikes, I will definitely be keeping it. I'm currently leaning toward dirtbagz over a Wolfman setup or a Great Basin, but only due to price. I think I'd like the wolfman setup the most, I'm not thrilled by the racks on the dirtbags, and the idea of straps over the seat isn't one I like either, but I think maybe the HT Mojave is the only reasonably priced bags without them.
