I picked up a Giant Loop Coyote bag for my trip and it worked out well. I didn't want to have the bulk of the Great Basin, or drill holes and the bag is the same waterproof material as the Great Basin. It fit on the bike well and attachment was very quick.

extra tank/gas

is that a tank off the 950 SE you've got mounted in front of the seat tank?

if so how many miles can you make when you start with both tanks full?

TIA

That's the Safari tank for the 690.

On only riding pavement I got 400 miles before I had the fuel light. Dirt included I can't tell you because the odo fogged up

Cool, no appearance of "chicken strips" there! Didn't really expect any after the Smokies RR.

Drop me a PM if you come this way.

Yep, I just fitted the Coyote in orange. An excellent piece of kit and heaps big enough for indefinite duration trips with the tent on the outside and everything else inside.

I love it

I've been using it for trail rides to carry tools and incidentals. On Sunday I ended up riding out another rider two up and the Coyote was easy to fit up to a XR650 to give us more seat room on my bike (the only one with buddy pegs). It was great how easy the switch was



And we had an interesting time on the ride out, it's all about the line selection! The 690 didn't bat an eye at the 340lbs+ it was haulin'.

been there - 30 fukin' miles of stones when the XR650R broke its timing chain. Us two smaller fellas had to suffer through the rocks, sand and ruts and yes, you're right about line selection!



Tossed the COYOTE in the bush with the XR and headed norte. TORTURE!

We had 20 miles of rocky roads (BOB walked for some of the really bad sections) and then we had easy graded and paved roads for the rest of the way back.

Longest two up I've done, we had quite a few almost catastrophes. At one point, both of us were launched 2 feet off the seat.

Wachs - this is probably a ridiculous question, but what would be the chance of getting a custom giant loop coyote with with that cable/slash protector stuff laminated between 2 layers?

Check out Pac-safe.com We talked to them about exactly that and it would cost a small fortune. One of their back pack units will not only secure the kit to the bike but lock up the rear tire as well.

Wachs,

I just gave you a plug on the new thread from GB on the rally/adventure kit. They should consider your bag and a larger tank and let it go at that for the 690. I don't think there are a lot of us that want the rally stuff.

Your bag does NOT need to be larger. Folks need to consider that less is really more with bike travel. I know they will not, but, hey, denial on my part springs eternal.
