    Our Siskiyou Panniers waterproof soft luggage combines the convenience of hard panniers with all of Giant Loop’s performance advantages. Rugged, rackless, lightweight and stable.

    Tested on real adventures.

    Pre-ordered mine. Hate tail bags and tank bags. Look forward in trying to change my mind.

    Just preordered mine as well! Hoping it works out on a DRZ400 with the Safari 7+ gallon tank.

    Because of the steep seat/tank angle it will tip back toward you more than on bikes with flat fronts - but it will not be in the way.

    We’re hoping to ship first production by mid-March. Thanks for choosing Giant Loop for your adventures!

    Good eyes! I believe this rider modified the Siskiyou Panniers and has them mounted on side luggage racks.

    If you don’t already have racks, there’s no need on the KTM 1190/1090/1290/790 - just use our Spacer Kit to remove the grab handles for a super tight and tidy installation!

    Post pics of your bike!

    My set up is high and tight already without grab handles and with the wings exhaust. Just curious how he got the weight low. Racks makes sense but I don't want racks. TIght and tidy is most important for me.

    In your february special a page back it says you get a free lift strap on orders over $75. Is it all automatic? I saw nothing of it online when I placed my order ( order number 29465)

    Awww. I was hoping for the end of February for pre-orders. I can't wait to try it out.

    There are two steps when we process orders online. Your order was received on our website late in the day, so it will be processed tomorrow. When we process the order, we add the free lift strap to qualifying orders, and you will get another email showing this when the order is processed. Thanks for your order!

    I checked, and your order is in our system, and the lift strap is added. We're doing the add-on manually, because it was too complicated trying to make it work automagically. You should get a second email confirming the total order.

    The corona virus scare caused our shipping date to shift to March 10 - but all pre-orders are being shipped to us via air freight, and we will turn them around as soon as they are received here at our warehouse. Thanks for your order!

    Tremendous! Thanks a bunch. I'm excited to try the new buck n roll tank bag. I really like the GL tank bags I have, but the smaller size will be more better for the dirt bikes.

    Just wanted to give a shout out to GL for standing behind their warranty. I wrote them the note below and they went out of their way to assure me the bag would be replaced - and even in my preferred yellow color!

    Hello,

    I've had my Diablo tank bag for a bit over 5 years and it's been perched atop my DR650 for adventures all over Alaska, Canada and the lower 48. The bag has been well loved, used as intended but not abused. Sometime during my recent ride from Alaska to Nevada and back, the clear vinyl started to tear at a stitching seam in one corner (photo attached). I really love the Diablo, it's exactly the right size and I'll buy another if I have to, but given the vinyl gave way exactly on the stitch line (between the needle holes), I'm hoping you'll consider replacing or repairing it under warranty.

    Thank you (both for considering my request and for making a fantastic tank bag!)

    Tom Simes

    BTW, this bag has seen the Dalton highway to Deadhorse, the Dempster to Inuvik, many trips over the Denali highway, multiple bun burner 1000 rides and just got back from a 6,591 mile trip to Burning Man (just to mention a few of it's accumulated adventures):
