Sierra Nevada Adventure's KTM 990 Adventure with Siskiyou Panniers


Nice shots from Mark at Sierra Nevada Adventures, out pre-riding the Henness Pass to Virginia City tour on his KTM 990 Adventure. Mark's chosen GL's Siskiyou Panniers, Dry Bag and Fandango Tank Bag for his "go light, go fast, go far" motorcycle expedition packing system.

What are you riding this fall?

No, we're trying to standardize our volume measurements. All bags are now measured with beans while bags are unmounted. The difference between mounted volume and unmounted volume is nill - it's just easier to fill the bags when they're not on bikes.

Team FTB, you are not going crazy after all. Trying to pack 39 liters into 30 is a challenge for anyone...

The Coyote was not strapped onto the bike to be filled, but a bike was the "workbench" that served as a support, while the Coyote was filled to capacity and zipped shut. Since the Coyote's base is a such a firm mounting platform, it doesn't balloon much, into a cylinder shape, when filled with beans. That means the Coyote's capacity doesn't diminish noticeably when mounting it tightly to the bike.
