These are from a 1,200 mile dual sport trip. If your interested in a ride report, here's one from when Cannonshot did it (he did a much better job of the report than I could ever do).

How did you like your giant loop set up?

Works well for short trips but way too small for longer ones. This trip I had a couple of spare tubes and tire irons in one side and and the other had my tool kit with some other miscellaneous small things. I will most likely put it up for sale and try to find something that I can fit my camping gear in.

The top roll is what I used for my camping gear and clothes. It was pretty top heavy and I was constantly worried that I was going to lose it and I had it strapped down tight. It made it through the trip, but it was moving around a lot in the rough stuff.

I have recently gotten the GL Mojavi saddle bags for days trips, and I have had the Great Basin for about a year for longer trips. The Mojavi works great for carrying a spare tube, tire irons, tools, and some water or a 1 ltr fuel bottle.


I'm no experienced minimalist camper by any means, so I strap a large dry bag on top to carry my tent and bed roll, but both GL bags seem to serve their purposes very nicely, and they are very well made.


I also recently picked up a GL Diablo tank bag. Again, well made, but I kind of wish I had gotten the slightly smaller Wolfman.

Just my .02

3. Added 12V plug receptacle to the headlight housing to charge GPS/
iphone, use heat vest, or use with battery tender
4. Wolfman enduro tank bag
5. Wings exhaust
6. Pivot Pegz
7. Great Basin Giant Loop luggage
8. KTM skid plate
9. Rox Risers

I'm well on my way. Most important transformation so far? I've recently designed and built the prototype for an integrated, stainless steel fuel tank & rack system. Tweeking design as I write. The rack portion keeps the Giant Loop bag (or any gear) off of the body work and the exhaust system...keeping it from abrading. The supply line for the additional stainless steel tank flows into the existing tank as needed. Additionally, I integrated the Rotopak water carrying system into the rack as well.
I do a lot of desert and adventure riding so I've been looking for an integrated solution to include my Giant Loop Saddle Bag. My 'Gila' tank design will add 60% (120 miles) more range to my ride! I just returned with my 690 from the BMW rally in Salem, OR and it seemed like a lot of people were interested--either for themselves or their KTM friends.

nice gas tank! i made a few and always got excited when i filled it up for the first time to see how much gas it would hold.

Love This Bike

Ok, I know the composition of these photos sucks other than the subject- especially following the beauties above. But I just came back from a little, very little, ride in a small area along a creek near home and I can't wipe the smile off my face. I got the bike back in February, heck maybe January, and took it apart and started upgrading per the forum advice. Got tired of that with the Rally Raid tanks yet to put on and reassembled it last weekend. The little dirt jaunt was great. Sliding, wheelies, incredible throttle response. I had ridden it to work last wek and was blown away by how fast the bike is on the road. Anyway, here are a few photos of my 2009 with 2600 miles. You can easily spot the various goodies the wife does not know about. I am looking forward to some adventure/camping rides soon.

Yup, the Lynx from Britannia Composites. Had both lights done in HID. Got the plug 'n play outlets with it, mounted the heated grips switch and volt meter too on the dash along with the Montana.

Hey Christian,

Where did you get the sticker for the Safari tank?
I want to dress my orange one up a bit, but don't really want to pay the $300 for the full set from RR.

Does it adhere well?

I don't know. It come on the tank when I bought it new
I can see that they were manually cut.
One side sticks great. The other one kind of come undone once a while

But I like how it breaks of the black some so I leave them on
Maybe came from a 950 or something. I don't know

Yes Scorp's. I've got these on - great on tarmac but limited off road. They're lasting quite well too with near 6000 miles on and plenty of life left.
