    GL customer Tara sent us this photo of her new KTM 390 Adventure confirming Coyote Saddlebags fit perfectly and are well proportioned for this smaller adventure touring motorcycle.

    Sometimes it isn’t the big ticket items that get the job done. I happened to luck out and found that I had an orange Giant Loop security cable in the back of my shop! I didn’t need anything high security, just something to keep the grabbing hands off, and this cable fit the bill perfectly!

    Nice setup. Hard to beat a van.
    How did the r/h HDB get that much rotation?
    I’m a sucker for Border Collies
    Great camp area

    Good eye Bike Guy! The HDB found a really big rock when i was trying to slip by another rider when we were in a very narrow rocky shute. I just got home from a roadtrip to Wyoming for some sweet riding (about 1000 miles away), so i haven't had the chance to straighten out the guard yet.

    The van has to pull double duty as the work van (carpenter), but it is super convenient as a motovan. Some guys need the huge trailer or RV to camp in, but i subscribe to "the less is more". I guess it would be the same principle as GL's "go light go fast go far".

    Thank you for the compliment on my "camp area", but that camp area is actually where i live. No real need to ever go out and camp when i can just walk outside the front door of my house. Less noise and better views than you'd ever find at any campground!

    Fantastic! Thanks for the post, pics and comments. Our Quick Loop security cables are intended to do as you describe, or as my grandfather used to say, "they keep honest people honest." They are easily cut with bolt cutters, but most petty thieves won't bother if they can't quickly grab-and-dash. We've had a GMC Savana as our GL vehicle for several years - we purchased it as a retired FedEx delivery van - and it has been a great vehicle. Looks even greater because it's paid for - and it cost a fraction of what all the new Spring and Transit styles cost. Simple is simply better sometimes. Cheers!

    You check with Old Timer, our importer in Dubai, and see if they have what you need: http://oldtimer-me.com

    I think you can put the MoJavi into the shopping cart on our website, enter your address and it will give you shipping options and pricing before you have to finish and pay: https://www.giantloopmoto.com/product/mojavi-saddlebag/

    Not sure if we’re offering Postal shipping for international orders now - too many delays!

    Thanks for riding with Giant Loop!

    I don't think this is that latest version

    This is what old timer has

    Does Old Timer have any 25" Pronghorn Straps? If so, you can cut the Fender Hooks off the velcro straps (the ones with the yellow bar tacks in the photo) and just use a 25" Pronghorn Strap instead of the velcro and webbing straps - all other features are the same. Here are the updated installation instruction: https://www.giantloopmoto.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Instr-Coyote-20200520-Final.pdf

    It would also probably be far less costly to ship you an envelope with a Pronghorn Strap and 2 Fender Hooks than the complete MoJavi Saddlebag kit. Thanks for choosing Giant Loop - you're going to love the MoJavi Saddlebag. Which bike are you mounting it on?

    Planning to mount it on a 2018 500 exc.

    Any differences to the 2020 models, other than the proghorn attachment style?

    I'm hoping old timer will provide a rack like the current promotion :)

    There are only minor differences - the change is primarily the Pronghorn Strap. On the 2018 500 EXC, a Tail Rack or Footmans Loops are the perfect rear anchor points - the Fender Hooks aren’t a good option for the bikes with two-layer fenders.

    Old Timer has to pay for shipping, taxes, duties, etc. to bring Giant Loop products to UAE, so it’s harder to for them to give deals and discounts.

    What are the changes
    Interested to know

    Also, perhaps you could work something out with old timer
    Maybe send them an extra rack
    I'd hate to miss out on this offer
