Sure. But Star Motor - one of Pal Anders' sponsors - were not allowed to unveil it:

Nice item arrived by overseas mail from Giantloop today. I'm impressed! This thing is designed by adv-riders for adv-riders and is top-notch quality. I'm amazed over the pure ingenuity and r&d behind this excellent luggage bag.


There I was, mounting it on the RR fresh from the mail package when my girlfriend messaged me to buy some groceries. I instantly agreed. Talk about perfect timing for testing the Coyote... After tightening the relevant straps ( this item fits PERFECTLY on the 690RR first time! ) I went along and filled it up with groceries weighing and filling the Coyote full. This worked very well and I'm amazed how functionally well this worked. Outstanding concept! Very promising for the upcoming gravel tours. Thanks, Wachs & Giantloop.

Some replica fairings available. Can be a good investment once I start growing horns and use that thing more aggressively.

A picture showing the reinforced rear tail structure and Akrapovic exhausts.
Craig Bounds on a 690RR during the Dakar 2010:


Guess I'll have to build at least two metal tail-end supporting bars extending from the exhaust fasteners upward to the tail structure to improve its durability.
That should also improve the hookup of the GL Coyote saddlebag and make things better at the rear.

The number plate holder cracked and was held dangling in place by an indicator wire recently. So this thing needs some aftermarket work yet

those rear supports were made by Derreck Edmondson at Edmondson racing in the uk, They also had some carbon fibre guards made for the bottom edges of the fuel tanks

I'll go for aluminium or steel bars like this on Steve's bike. Should be fairly simple to fabricate and install.

Mmmmh, for me theese parts on the pic are looking not so nice !

Also how he put the db killer ( it 's the oem part from KTM to reduce the horsepower delivered with the original rally kit ) on the exhaust is not looking like a good ingeneering. I mean this bike costs a lot of money, so it would be nice to put some good and beautifull parts on it.
