Nice! Careful with that exhaust...it has a cat converter, and gets UBER hot...

So we can't install the smaller on? That's what I was hoping for...30L is all I need!

Thanks -Sean

Another happy customer!!!
GiantLoop Bags are the BOMB. I have tried all kinds of set ups on my old Katoom and DRZ.........always a hassle This bag holds things solid, has more space then you realize, is built very solid, mounts solid, and has turned my DRZ into a multi day ADV tourer You do not even feel the load, as it is not always shifting around, slamming you in the butt in the rough stuff, cramping the riding platform.....in fact, on my first outing with them, I had a lunch box, extra shoes, warm clothes, tools, and later in the day strapped my ballistic pants on with the straps.....I stopped more then once, because I was sure that I had lost the load........simply cuz I was not having to hassle with it, and it was not bouncing up and sliding forward.....when I stopped to check it out........everything was exactly as I secured it........I was delighted to just lose my mind in the trails in front of me...............GREAT PRODUCT and the best customer service I have encountered in a long time.



THANKS GIANTLOOP DAVE AND HAROLD















NOTE: I am in no way associated with GiantLoop, just a happy customer

There you go, showing off that you got yours and "me" is waiting to join the club for them to get the X-challenge ones going.

Nice, and Jealous you have yours.

I think that the XC ones being bigger is just fine with me. you dont have to fill them for short trips, but you have that option.
VERY Much looking fwd to them. to bad I already spend my tax return. lol

dont matter, I will still be getting some cause its cheaper than plan "B" so all is good

Cheers

Hey Wachs.
That was Canon Beach....

Been out on the trail a bit horn hunting. Finally had a buddy take an action shot....he isn't the best photographer......but after riding with me all weekend, me carrying all of his stuff......he ordered a giantloop set up. He is the guy that bought my KTM from me, he is really setting it up nice......now I am having sellers remorse


The pics a little blurry, but I can't ever find a good photographer

As least it is an action shot

f650?

Will these bags fit the '01-'07 BMW F-650gs/dakar?

The rear plastic is kinda small, kinda flimsy and it has a large muffler with a cat... As a bonus it's a big heavy pig and I NEED lightweight bags

dig around and you will see that the Great Basin will fit on most bikes that have the passenger footrest brackets, the rear grab bars (or any stock rear rack).
Assuming your intention is riding: lighter - faster - farther.
thanks, I have a bike like the red one in the back of this pic:

That's not the great basin, right? Do you have better pics of the red bike?
