GL Coyote Fitment Issues

Has anyone else had a problem with how damn short the rear strap is on the GL Coyote and how, if the bag is centered on the bike, it won't reach the edge of the fender on this pig without moving the bag WAY too far toward the rear?

You're treading on risky territory with volunteering remarks about servicing camels Chris, if only because there's humps involved. Add sand and oil, by definition the definition of a desert, and conclude with me that any mentioning of seamen and a ship of the desert would be misplaced in this thread about our belovet humper



Hoologan,
mine fits anywhere with strap to spare, so yours is a dud. Contact the supplier? I'm sure they'll hurry to exchange it, as their fantastic products no doubt will go hand in hand with sterling service.

BuRPsa, I was thinking the same thing, what does that say for our train of thought

Atreiou's stuff from the ME desert is always pretty cool.

We had a month of crappy weather here with no riding so I finally got around to putting together some video of a Moab ride I did with my son in Oct. He's a mtn biker with zero time on a dirtbike. He was able to hang with the Old Man pretty well.

Top of the World Trail - some amazing views from the summit

Outstanding!

Great to see this sort of thing. Well written. I wouldn't post it in Rider Reports though. There are a couple of guys there smart enough to get the allegory.
Thanks!

I just noticed he was banned, guess he didn't make good on all those items he collected $$ for and promised, if that's the case, what a POS

Your timing is perfect. I moved the XRR and 315 R into the living room today. It's been months since I've been in the garage. I just got tired of looking at bikes, that I couldn't ride.

Six more days till the cast comes off. Having the bike in the house, will give me sometime to reconnect with her . As of right now, I believe that I will be able take a spin on her next weekend. Fast, dirt roads are the goal. I have one in mind. I'm going to stick to some easy riding, for awhile. My cardo sucks right now.

Regarding header...

The stock pipe (with HRC tip), has been my choice for all the years, I've been riding my XRR's. I'd like to call out BUMP on this topic.
