The Great Basin is still pretty small by pannier packer standards. The pics I have seen of the coyote size, really make me think it carries your lunch for day tripping.

If you do end up getting a Great Basin realize they are NOT waterproof (even with the seam sealer). You will need to also buy dry bags.

I have a Giant loop you can come over and look at. Oh, and I have some Wolfman soft bags for the DRZ as well.

No, but terrain changes a lot and if its wet its a LOT of work on a big bike....that's when I pulled my hamstring and that was riding the HP2.

I've been researching the shit out of soft bag setups and I'm pretty convinced I'll go with the new Kriega stuff. Every review that I've seen is glowing. I'd like to do Colebatch's stuff, but between the bags and racks you are looking at like a $800 setup.

The overlander 30 is 3 bills. Down the road I could add a US30 tailbag for a total of 60 liters of storage.

The overlander 60 is nice, but again, $800 is too rich for me. Looks like between the Magadan stuff, the Kriega stuff, the new Wolfman and new Giant Loop offerings there are quite a few options out there.

I've been along the part near Faulkner, it's nice scenery. Granted there were leaves and warmth then as well tho. There was also a race getting out, which made traffic interesting...

A lot of storage depends on your gear. As a backpacker I've done the wonderland trail twice (94 miles around Mt. Rainier) with a 50 liter pack. That's 9 days worth of food. clothing, and shelter in 50 liters! My tent, sleeping bag, clothing, and cooking gear is less than 23 lbs. Everything else is food and water. You don't need as much as you think you need and even less if you're in a hotel/motel. Granted you need more when riding a bike for tools and spare parts, but trade the non-essentials in.

I'm a big fan of the soft bags as well. Giant loop makes some great stuff and I'll trade my current luggage for the coyote or basin any day. I ,like Garrett, have been following Colebatch's RR and am convinced that soft bags is the way to go for long adventures in the dirt/mud. I'm not sure about you but hard cases once you go down are no longer waterproof so you need to have water tight stuff sacks anyway.
