Looking good! Thanks for the pic and comments. Cheers!
loaded up for a little camping,,,, i downsized from a great basin cause it was HUGE!!! this coyote is still bigger than i need as i found myself stuffing extra's in there, but its great to have,,, dont even notice it on the bike.
Nice Pic, thanks for posting!
The Great Basin does have RTW expedition grade capacity for a light packer. I also use a Coyote, keeps the load off my seat and I can't over pack, if I have all my camping gear. What kind of sleeping bag do you use? Mines a REI Lightweight 40*, so I have to wrap in a space blanket when it's cold.
mines a eureka 40* so same thing when its cold. i dont know what you use but i found these a while back and simply put, awesome. i use it by itself sometimes.
i have the emergency bivy and i think i'm gonna buy the utility blanket
my bag and this bivy fit into the top kidney bag, everything else doesnt fill the two side bags, you can see in the pic even though i packed some extra clothes the sides at the compression straps are totally empty
for summer i made a sleeping bag out of flannel sheets, i can do overniters comfy with nothing more than a kreiga r15.
go light go fast was kinda my motto before you clowns stole it
I picked up a Bivy Bag last spring, with the same plan in mind. It is an Integral Designs Unishelter and is a step above the normal bivy sack, with a roof line single pole. Sure packs small and with the curved pole, packs next to the center stuff sack.
I have yet to camp in it, but it has been on the last couple of rides to see how it fits into my Coyote load-out. This is a web pic, mine is red and covered in seam sealer.
The flannel sleeper is a cool concept, kinda old-school cowboy style. I have heard of guys using quilts and a tarp instead of a sleeping bag and tent.
Pretty sure my nephew Oscar is right about the jolly fat man's affinity for motorbikes - next best thing to a magic sleigh and reindeer!

First Ride 2014
Do these hand guards work at dual sport highway speeds(60mph)?
So I am on a trip right now using a great basin on my Xr650r... I love how the bag gets out of the way, and how easy it is to mount. One major flaw imo though... Give me some water bottle pouches.
When I hop off the bike I want a bevy, and I want it right there easy to get to.
I ran the Bush Wackers at between eighty five and a buck o'five, for a more than a few hours, on my last ride. The guards take a wind profile and hold it, no flapping, flopping or getting loose. The guards are made of the stiffest and toughest plastic we could find. The pic below shows how they wrap around the controls and are secured by the Prong Horn straps. When at rest, the guards stand up like in the picture, when at speed the tops fold down an inch or two into an airfoil.
Your wish is our 2014 Possibles Pouch! Strap one on each leg of your Great Basin and put drinks in one side and snacks in the other.
Where are these on the web site?
Our website is scheduled to be updated soon, to reflect all the new 2014 products, design and pricing upgrades. The New Buckin' Roll2, Possibles Pouch, Fandango Tank Bag Pro and Diablo Tank Bag Pro will be added at that time. Stay tuned!
If anyone sees this guy on the road, maybe suggest he look into getting a Great Basin for that ride...
yes! i've been up to 75 w/ no issues on my DR.
Doesn't help me right now
But I will probably buy some when I get back.
