I have the CJ Racer rack and this is what I was wondering. Thanks, guys.

I got the Diablo tank bag also so it looks like getting the seat off will be a bit of a pita now.

the Mojavi Bag (and all Giant Loop bags) shouldn't be mounted on the seat. strap it to the tail of your bike behind the seat.

I get that but the CJ racer rack interferes slightly so the bag must rest partially on the seat.

I loved my CJ rack but ended up switching to the Promoto rack as it is a bit narrower. But yes... the Mo'Javi does rest a bit on the seat. I try to adjust it so that I can just get the seat off without having to move it.

That's my next step. The CJ is too BIG for my use. I want less weight on the top rack so I will downsize to a smaller top plate. The setup I ran in LA was pretty good for hammering it off road but the bike feels top heavy with a big dry bag on the rear. Now that I have the Mojavi I can get my tool kits, spares, tubes, etc. out of my saddle bags which frees up room for the stuff I was carrying on the top/rear.

The Great Basin is designed to sit on the rear of the seat.

We've also used the Coyote on rear of a seat, just ahead of a rear rack (with a dry bag on it) with the 2 body straps going through the front holes of the rack. The fender straps are thus not used. It's rock solid when mounted this way.

Yes, I've done the same w/ my Coyote too.
It does not move at all and fits the bike perfectly
& with a dry bag strapped to the top makes a great backrest.
I rode over Webster pass with this setup and does not get in the way at all when standing or moving around.

Sent an email a while back, didn't get a response - trying here.

Are these waterproof stuff sucks available yet? Saw no mention of them at the GL site.

If so - how much? And, is it anticipated they'll replace the existing stuff sacks or will they continue to be an add-on?

If you have stuff in there that's really moisture-critical like your down sleeping bag in fall/winter, consider a sack like this e-vent compression dry bag . More traditional dry-bags are 100%, but they are necessarily not compression sacks because they're totally air-tight both in and out.

I have one and it's remarkable: it really does slowly let air out of the bottom orange part while the rest of the bag is airtight. Inside the GL you should be 100% safe with one of these for your sleeping bag and sleep layers, phone, camera, etc.

4. Coyote Dry Bag Giant Loop's Coyote Dry Bag adds 12 liters (730 cubic inches) of 100% waterproof gear storage to

your Coyote Saddleba...
$69.00


2. Great Basin Dry Bag Giant Loop's Great Basin Dry Bag adds 23 liters (1399 cubic inches) of 100% waterproof gear storage to your Great Bas...
$73.00



As far as I know these two dry bags will be offered as add ons only. They are true roll top dry bags, I have had the Great Basin Dry Bag for a few years now, works great.

I've got about 6 weeks before the need to purchase, and would certainly prefer something tailored to fit that would contain all the contents.

Still, good to know of an alternative if nothing materializes at GL - thanks for the pointer.
