    Dirtnadvil,

    I don't yet but I'll see if I can get them. Capacity is stated at 70L (35L a side).

    We'll have them (at least to show if they're not available yet) at the Vancouver Motorcycle Show Jan 17-20th.

    GL guys?? I don't want to steal too much of your thunder :lol3

    Seattle IMS show is this weekend and so everyone in the NW is busy with that. We'll see if we can find some more info. We love GL soft luggage.

    That Fort Rock Top Case is awesome too.
    That is perfect for ADV & street bikes with hard panniers and a rear rack. You get a tons of rear and side storage all waterproof and you can still get back off to the rear of your seat if needed or have room for a passenger.

    Nice work!

    What's new with the Coyote and Great Basin???

    Great Loop guys,
    Have you sized the Siskiyou bags to the RTE rack from Globetrottin?
    If it fits, I'll take one.
    I have the following on my KTM 500EXC and it looks like that would be the perfect bag for this rack.

    The Siskiyou or the Great Basin are both high on my potential-luggage-system list. I would really like to compare both with one another: the upgraded 2013 Great Basin versus the Siskiyou.

    Are more details available what the upgrades for the Great Basin specifically are?
    Are already more details available about the Siskiyou? Also photo's of how it mounts and fits to the bike?

    Is February 1st the date that Giant Loop ships the product to their dealers, or will it then be available at the dealers (including European continent) themselves?

    Thanks in advance.

    +2 Would like to hear about new design changes on the Coyote as I'm to buy another one. Do I buy the current model on sale or do I wait for the new model?

    The above makes it look like the zipper now wraps around the bottom of the bags and up the inside 6 inches or so. Also a possible sturdier grab handle on the very top of the bag. More importantly.......................... is there any improvement in waterproofing??? Looks like seams on the bottom of the pods, which makes me think its not a one piece design with a waterproof zipper like I was hoping. but what do I know. The increase in zipper length will offer easier packing but the last model was hardly inefficient in this area.

    Lets see some more pics.

    Hello Donovan! That pic is a new bag called the Fort Rock Top Case. It's for the 2-up riders mostly on big bikes.

    Just started a new "2013 Giant Loop" thread here in the vendor section, and we'll start filling in all the details there. :deal

    anyone have pics of the Siskiyou Panniers mounted on a KTM 950 or 990 adventure ?

    I know there out there because I saw the prototype panniers mounted at the KTM adventure rally months ago in Oregon..

    I am wondering if the Siskiyou Panniers will work for 2up riding..
