Ah, I see. It's more like Skibum support. He does need a little personal attention.

For anyone in need of a luggage solution for the rally, Atomic-moto.com has some very good sale prices on some Giant Loop products at the moment. Coyote, Great Basin, and Mojavi bags are marked down, but none of the tank bags as far as I can see.

I ordered a Coyote bag for about $80 off the regular price + $30 shipping to Canada. I believe shipping in the USA is free.

That is a really good deal. I have to wonder, however, what the changes will be on the new ones.

http://giantloopmoto.blogspot.com/20...-products.html

If the new ones are waterproof, it may be worth waiting. Based on this, I'm guessing it will be BNG plus the dry pods:

Giant Loop’s 2013 line offers riders more 100% waterproof options — and even more flexibility to customize the best solution for each rider's individual needs. Rather than making its proven outer Bombshell waterproof, Giant Loop protects gear inside with waterproof Dry Pods and some of the toughest roll-top Dry Bags made.

All of this is moot for me, since I already on a GL Coyote. Right now I'm debating buying the dry pods or going with garbage bags for waterproofing. I can buy a lot of trash bags for $100

I know what you mean, but then I thought about 2 of the people with whom I did a week-long ride last summer through mountain passes in Colorado. I took along the Giant Loop Mojavi and Buck N' Roll bags (which were awesome but a little small for a full week). Two of my riding partners had Coyote bags, and I developed luggage envy by the 3rd day. The Mojavi is perfect for day trips or an overnighter, but the Coyote is perfect for 3-7 days, without being overly giant like the expedition-ready Great Basin. For $250 the Coyote is the easiest luggage system I've seen so I didn't hesitate when I saw them on sale.

As far as being waterproof, the current line is pretty damn good. Not 100% in sustained downpour, but hard to complain. If you really wanted to make it 100% then using lightweight silicon-nylon dry bags inside is a very good option and makes packing/unpacking easy.

If anyone needs alterations or straps, buckles and such sewn onto bags, I can help out. PM me. I work cheap and the shipping will be the biggest cost. Shipping is usually $10-$15 each way for bulky items. I do zippers, gear repair and alterations too.

I just figured I'd offer the service because I got the idea here. Someone mentioned altering a military bag to mount to crash bars. I like it. There's a link in my signature to pics of my products.

We gotta talk. I want to make these easier to move bike to bike. Since I live in CT too I guess the shipping will be the cost of a ride. Kinda works out for me doesnt it
