Using the very same Giant loop with my WR. Best baggage solution ever. Perfect.

Went through heavy rain with my Coyote bag, returning from Italy. Everything inside stayed dry. No issues for me!

And all the Yanks who´re complaining the Tenere is too heavy and such, I wonder when I see these pics and videos, wtf are they talking about? Don't Judge it if you haven't ridden one, maybe on paper it ain't the most ideal bike, but in every day reality it performs very well, imho! I still think it's a great bike, an allround allroad travel bike and can be used in various conditions with minor adjustments. Amen!

Well said. Too heavy compared to what? An enduro 450 bike or a KTM 690? Sure, but much more comfortable on long trips and much more reliable. And compared to a two or more cylinders bike, quite lighter. I really think that the Tenere 660 is the best compromise between an enduro bike and a big BMW for adventure trips with lots of off-road
