SiliPints are in the house! Get registered for the Giant Loop Summer Lake Hot Springs Ride and receive one of these limited unbreakable drinking tools for hot or cold beverages!



I will miss the handle on my ever-present German beer steins, cause they will stay home from now on. Over the years I've broke enough of them in camp to know better, but I just can't leave home without one...

Rob Rickert, owner of Off Road Adventure Academy and Dirt Bike School in Sacramento, took a trip to AZ a couple weeks ago and rode around the Wickenberg area. His BMW R1200GSA was loaded with a Great Basin Saddlebag for the trip. He took a bunch of pics and shared them with us, so I will echo them here! Looks like a hot one, Rob's temp sensor read 101*F while they were riding.

Thanks for the photos!















Wonder what kind of shiny new Ram-Mount air speed indicator, Rob is showing off, and is it in the latest Touratech catalog?

Nice T shirt updates!!

Talk to me about the Bucking roll bag that mounts to the side of the tank.

I hated tank bags as they always cluttered my crotch when standing off road. My fear would be with the Buckin Roll bag that they would get in the way when gripping the tank with my knee's. Think technical dirt riding not fireroads. Is this an issue?

As I was afraid of this melting thing, I finally end up attaching the left strap to the frame, so as to avoid the problem. It was sometimes touching the rear of my left leg this way, but it was ok on non technical trails. Next time, I'll try those heat sleave like the DEi you did mention, it should be ok. Attaching to the footpeg would work better for me as, this way, the bag is a bit lower and don't get in the way.

By the way, the mojavi have been awesome during the trip, I am very pleased with it.

Of course it was my own doing... I just had to grasp at straws for a few minutes!

In other, more valuable news:



J-Mo is rolling the Rally Raid Products LC4-50 project bike down to the Hellas Rally event. She will ride to the Rally, race the event, then ride the bike home. She is sporting a Coyote Saddlebag to handle her gear.

Go get 'em Jenny!

Scotty Breauxman is our hero in a couple of ways, between his recent work on the Baja Rally and past years of Baja race reporting.

This latest feat of strength is really something to brag about... Wonder how many decibels this landing caused and what it registered on the Richter scale!
F800GSA, flying on Siskiyou Pannier wings

edit to add: gonna need a shock bolt and front rim after the landing...

They're here now! Two styles: long-sleeve quick dry poly and short-sleeve 100% cotton.

I've ridden many miles now with the new Buckin' Roll Tank Bag, as well as with the Pannier Pockets - mounted with the Diablo/Fandango Tank Bags and on their own. Here's a shot of me riding with Chilly White in Baja in February with the Pannier Pockets - they are never in my way regardless of terrain and technical demands:

And here's a shot of the Buckin' Roll Tank Bag Complete with our own long-legged designer Brian seated to show rider position (and the harness can be positioned even farther forward, up against the fuel fill):

Thanks for the pics of the Buckin Roll. I think I got the product name wrong, what seems best for me would be the pannier pockets with the harness on Brians picture.

I checked out the GL website and there are not a lot of pics of these mounted on a bike or in action. Do you have any more pics of the Pannier pockets? It also states to add Pronghorn straps for added off road stability. Is there a lot of flop with the pannier pockets if the Pronghorn straps are not used (think strictly hard, technical off road riding)?

I was a little confused of the pricing on the website. What would be the total cost of the 2 pannier pockets and the harness to mount them securely?

Thanks heaps.

Pannier Pockets have an included cross strap, that joins the two sides without the need for an additional harness.



Charles rode his EXC with two liters of fuel in each Pannier Pocket, no added straps.

My friend sat on my bike and he’s 6’6 and he still could have used them.
