I like the giant loop, but for trips I carry a small second bag behind it on my other bike a 950. Both bags fit the 950 well and you aren't cramped into the seat. On the Terra it could get cramped, I haven't loaded them up and tried it though. With the 2 bags the weight seems to be high and I would like to get the heavier stuff down lower and it can be inconvenient to get into. I do pack light and carry lightweight camping gear. I leave it on for day trips and it cinches up pretty tight. I also have a set of Ortlieb style bags that I had for my KLR but unless a rack is used I can't get them attached very secure. It is a good bag and I just may use it until I decide on something.
