Great Basin System
Carry your gear where the passenger would sit on your bike - 
fits virtually any motorcycle designed to carry a passenger. Now more modular and customizable - choose the Great Basin accessories bags that best suit your packing needs.

Great Basin Saddlebag - Adventure Proof
The soft luggage problem-solver for virtually any bike designed to carry a passenger. Straps to passenger footrest mounts and rides on pillion seat. Plus, a long list of rider-requested improvements — and a lower entry price (MSRP $399 USD vs. $439)!
• COLORS: black, white, gray, yellow, orange
• NEW! Volume: 60 liters (10 more liters!)
• NEW! “Beavertail” and floating compression straps - more ways to carry the gear you need, the way you want it
• NEW! Separate mounting and compression straps for easier gear access
• NEW! Beefy YKK coil zipper (not water resistant) opens/closes easier
• NEW! Redesigned storm flap for 
improved access and water deflection
• NEW! Choose fitted Great Basin Stuff Sacks or 100% waterproof Great Basin Dry Pods — or use your own bags inside to suit your kit
• NEW! Cable lock pass-though to secure bag to bike while parked (cable/lock not included)
• NEW! More reflective accents for better visibility
• 1 Hot Springs Heat Shield (new laser-cut aluminum version) included
• Military-spec materials and construction
• Made in U.S.A.
• MSRP $399 USD
AWESOME, Thanks Olaf.
