no offense, just my opinion.


Thanks for the feedback, 2 SPOT! I understand your appreciation of a grassroots company. That is why I am a part of GL! It is the local grassroots motorcycle company where I live and I want to see GL grow into its potential. Promoting the products we sell and reporting about the folks that review or like our stuff, is part of the business.

Did the "Get Your's Today" cross the line?

Austin Vince's Mondo Sahara Premiere in Portland

Premiere screening in Portland of Austin Vince's new film, Mondo Sahara next week! Our friends at the Sang-Froid Riding Club are hosting Austin's appearance, and the film is at Clinton Street Theater - just $5 at the door! We saw a rough cut of Mondo Sahara at Overland Expo and it's his best film yet. We're going - and donating prizes to help contribute to Austin's tour. Let us know if you want us to reserve a ticket for you!

Excellent, as long as you didnt throw up a little in your mouth, I feel like I can recover...

Lucky, you got to see Austin's movie! I have a family Christmas party to conduct, so I will miss the film. :-(

olaf asked me how i liked the coyote vs great basin in another thread,, heres my cut and paste reply.

ya know,,, the size of the coyote is good for me, but i like the design of the GB better, i dont mean the internal bag or bottle holders but the shape and way it mounts more vertically.

would be cool to have a coyote sized bag shaped more like the GB.

but, i am loving the bag, i wanted something a little bigger than the mojavi i bought 3 yrs ago and the coyote is filling in nicely.

kudos to giant loop.

Alternative Zigzag Handlebar Bag Installation

That's creative! We've strapped the Zigzag on to subframes, engine guards, saddlebags, etc. - but mini saddlebags is a new one! Can you pop the seat off and snap some pics of your installation? Thanks

Thanks for the great products!

I absolutely love my GL Great Basin bag.
I can fill it to the max or pack it light and it always hides back and out of the way.

This bag mounts on and off super easy. It seals up well and has stayed dry through days of rain.

It also handles falls extremely well and makes a great back pad for back lifting the bike upright after a get off.

GL makes intelligent and durable gear and I highly recommend them. Thanks guys.

Dave Darcy, the Continental-Drift, London to Sydney rider, is prepping his 690 Enduro for another big ride. This time he is crossing the Simpson Desert of Australia. It isn't his first trip into the Simpson, he rode his 640 Adventure across in 2010. His experience helped him plan for some upgrades, to handle the desert conditions. TrailZone Magazine took a look at his bike and reviewed the details in this article. Check it out!
