I suppose I could find a wrap or two of pipe wrap, just to keep that spot cool. I may try it first, and the worst case scenario is I have to sew some strap back on.

My only critism, and bear in mind, I have not hit the road with it, but there is some webbing on the top of the bag, and I thought it would be handy to have another web or two on the rear, near the base of the bag, so you can strap a tent or other bag there. I don't require it myself, but just a thought

Disregard, blonde momento.

Brian - You are seriously gearing up this spring - first I see a Leatt review and now this. I am trying to decide on the Mojavi or Coyote for my lil WR... decisions decisions.

Bring on summer!

Good idea, I may look into that the next time I am tinkering.

I tied some parachute cord around the frame and attach the bag to those. We will see. I am ditching the header wrap as it's a joke and putting the stock shields back on....ugly, but effective. I melted my new Teiz riding suit already.

They are TOTALLY different beasts. Not to be a salesman, but you need both of them.

The Coyote is for a multi-day long trip. The Mojavi is an 'everyday' deal. You'll get more day to day use from the Mojavi, but if you're doing the TAT the Coyote is the ticket

Meh.

I used the fender hook loop to wrap around the stock rack, and it is not only super secure, but it draws the bag to the rear. I still get to keep the small pelican for the DSLR, and there is room between the two for a small pvc tube that I will put the poles for the tent into, and strap to the rack. They will be unseen below the Coyote.

Excellent product, and I want to say kudos to your Canadian dealer, MotoOverland for getting it here in two days, with a discount for it being the bag he used for demos, and there was not a single mark that I saw on the bag that indicated it. Is it summer yet?



Hey Brian,

The bike looks awesome! I am envious!

Thanks for the kudos too

I saw you mention something about adding extra daisy chains to the back of the bag to tie things to but you may not realize that the top two compression straps are meant to go around a tent or anything else behind the bag too. It really secures them to the bag.

Also the 1" gap should be fine but I'll let wachs sound in on that.

Enjoy and see you out there!

Dave

Yah, I realized that when I looked at other pictures. I actually am blonde. Thanks again Dave. I can't believe how soon it arrived!

Dave is right about the 2 middle straps, we intentionally left those long to secure another 20 liter or so, bag to sit behind the main saddlebag. You can strap multiple pieces back there but stowing your tent, shoes, chair, etc. in one sack will keep everything together better for sure. In your case with the (stock?) KTM rear rack and the little Pelican case, your load is will be forced up. I'd try to keep that extra bag as small as possible and place it between the Pelican and Coyote.

If you have the stock rack with the 2 vertical 'hoops' towards the rider - we strongly suggest those be ground off as they'll be poking the bottom of the saddlebag with some force. I took an angle grinder to the rack on mine and made that thing smooth - it never jabbed my butt again either!
Thanks for the reply. I corrected my post about the straps earlier, as I later saw how the straps were used to secure an additional bag behind. I was also being hypothetical in my case, as this bag holds more than I will ever need to carry. Are you sure it's only 30 litres?? I have a tent and sleeping bag, and they don't even come close to filling the sides. It is perfectly located, and allows me to retain the teeny pelican. Thanks for the tip on zapping the loop off. I can't imagine I would ever use then anyway.

Mo'Javi

I think I might have gotten the very first production Mo'Javi.

I showed up at Wachs house and banged on the door til he relented!

Dave, got to test out the Mo'Javi this weekend. I think it's broke, I couldn't tell it was there.

I just returned from four days and three nights camping in Death Valley... I love my Coyote!!





Sleeping bag in the small rear bag. Tent, thermarest, chair, clothes (including a sweater), warm jacket, two tubes, cooking set (pot, stove, fuel, cup, coffee filter holder and filters, matches), bit of food, extra water, and shoes in the GL Coyote.

And today I received my MoJavi. Wow. It is amazing.
