    Thanks LOUD AL... If they weren't from REI, I may give them a whirl. I would rather chew on broken glass and piss on an electric fence than give those greenies a dollar. They LOVE closing riding areas. I will explore the brand and see if I can buy them elsewhere. I did order an assortment of Aerostich waterproof bags and pouches today. I will report what fits and works... Thanks again guys!!!!

    Check out any rafting supply place. I use the waterproof nylon bags that take up almost no extra room. They come in different sizes. Use them for both the bike and white water rafting as a second layer of protection inside the dry bags.

    Nice! Careful with that exhaust...it has a cat converter, and gets UBER hot...

    So we can't install the smaller on? That's what I was hoping for...30L is all I need!

    Another happy customer!!!
    GiantLoop Bags are the BOMB. I have tried all kinds of set ups on my old Katoom and DRZ.........always a hassle:deal This bag holds things solid, has more space then you realize, is built very solid, mounts solid, and has turned my DRZ into a multi day ADV tourer:clap :clap You do not even feel the load, as it is not always shifting around, slamming you in the butt in the rough stuff, cramping the riding platform.....in fact, on my first outing with them, I had a lunch box, extra shoes, warm clothes, tools, and later in the day strapped my ballistic pants on with the straps.....I stopped more then once, because I was sure that I had lost the load........simply cuz I was not having to hassle with it, and it was not bouncing up and sliding forward.....when I stopped to check it out........everything was exactly as I secured it........I was delighted to just lose my mind in the trails in front of me...............GREAT PRODUCT and the best customer service I have encountered in a long time.



    THANKS GIANTLOOP DAVE AND HAROLD:deal :clap :clap

    There you go, showing off that you got yours and "me" is waiting to join the club for them to get the X-challenge ones going.

    Nice, and Jealous you have yours.

    I think that the XC ones being bigger is just fine with me. you dont have to fill them for short trips, but you have that option.
    VERY Much looking fwd to them. to bad I already spend my tax return. lol

    dont matter, I will still be getting some cause its cheaper than plan "B" so all is good

    Cheers

    Hey Wachs.
    That was Canon Beach....

    Been out on the trail a bit horn hunting. Finally had a buddy take an action shot....he isn't the best photographer......but after riding with me all weekend, me carrying all of his stuff......he ordered a giantloop set up. He is the guy that bought my KTM from me, he is really setting it up nice......now I am having sellers remorse:cry :deal :lol3 :lol3 :lol3


    The pics a little blurry, but I can't ever find a good photographer:lol3

    As least it is an action shot:deal

    Will these bags fit the '01-'07 BMW F-650gs/dakar?

    The rear plastic is kinda small, kinda flimsy and it has a large muffler with a cat... As a bonus it's a big heavy pig and I NEED lightweight bags :tb
