Condensed version is the OP is one fo the designers of the Giant Loop. There was a split and now he's making these on his own.

These are a much better design than the original GL bags.

There are some sneak peak pics but they aren't available for sale yet.

Soon. I'm glad I've held out. I'm getting me some when they do.

Looks like a really good product. I am sure it will still be in the mid 300's. Ask for a referal discount and I will buy after you.

Now I need to figure out how I will strap my backpacking pack to my bike, or do I borrow my dad's truck and drive down there...16 MPG is not too appealing.

Dave wachs wasnt part of giant loop he WAS giant loop. As such i'd hold out for his new designs..... but for reference i had a great basin and my camping set was swimming in it. I have a coyote now. its still on the big side for me most of the time. I'm a minimalist i guess.

Loop style bags

I struggled with justifying paying that much for a non-waterproof bag. My sister and I put together something more suited for our budgets. The materials cost about $12. and the sewing took about 3hrs, not including making the pattern.

It doesn't resolve the 'how do I strap this thing to the bike' problem though.








Can you tell I wasn't a boy scout? Look at that retched hack of a tie down job.

You either need better tie downs or wheels on that trailer.

I rode all over the southwestern US and baja with dry bags. Prolly 50Kmi on a KLR. I just used ratcheting tie downs and never had an incident. Always have to be mindful of moving parts and especially exhaust!

I even brought a folding kayak with sailing rig to Puertocitas on the KLR strapped down with all my gear in dry bags with ratcheting tie downs. I wish I had a picture of that! Sure was a fun trip. Did a lot of sailing from a moto. When I had the barcito all setup next to the moto with my kitchen, everyone kept asking me where my truck was to haul all this stuff down there. They so didn't believe me when I told them I rode it all down on the moto. I even had an audience watch me load up!

It helps if you have a rear rack. I used to have what they call a BBQ Rack on the DR and I could strap a bunch of stuff back there. But the DRZ has nothing. It was an interesting 2 days of camping with my buddies picking up my gear all over the trail.
