Nah, just put an airbag or styro peanuts in it.

Or, you could just not crash. It's what I prefer.

What happens when you crash? Shit get's tore up! Until that happens, they make a nice place to carry spare tubes, patch kit, gloves, TP, etc.

Keeps your crashbars from getting scratched?

Tried to find an answer with the search button, but had no success.

How do the giant loop bags stand up to the heat from the exhaust? I though I had seen a post where someone had melted a bag on their heat-shield.

I have the stock exhaust and am wondering if the bags will stand up, even in hot trail riding conditions?

I would affix some heat tape to the back side of the bags where it is near or in contact with the exhaust shield.

I've done some traveling with the Giant Loop bag in contact with the heat shield and no problems. I suppose if you somehow blocked airflow between the heat shield and the can, it might get pretty hot, but so far, no worries.

Had no problems with the Giant Loop Great Basin in Utah last year but I also added a piece of the Aerostich 'heat tile' to the inside corner of right side. I have the Arrow exhaust which has a smaller heat shield than stock.

Sort of thinking of a worse case scenario, like working the bike hard and occasional stopping and idling the bike in a single track trail.

I guess some added heat protection (tape etc..) is 'cheap insurance'

Thanks for the reply, Not sure how fast I can get some here in Canada. Lowes / Home depot option sounds quicker.

Great Pic , nice looking rig.
