    Testing the new Suzuki Vstrom 1050 suspensions.

    When our Giant Loop 68liters Great Basin saddlebag is not enough, you can add some 5liters Possible Pouches on the side, and still strap some other stuff at the back.

    The revolutionary biomorphic U-shaped design, mimics the legs of a passenger, positioning all the weight as low as possible and minimizing luggage movement.

    Just got back from a quick run up the middle section of the IDBDR... from Deadwood Res to Darby, MT.

    My wife and I went on 250s packed light will all GL gear. We each had a GL Coyote + Possibles pouch and I carried the kitchen on my bike in a Rogue dry bag. First trip with the Coyotes and I am very positively impressed. It is so light and holds onto the bike so well in rough terrain and we had zero issues. The Coyote is perfect for rackless small bikes as nothing else on the market can carry so much and add so little weight to the bike. It is also drags less air at speed on the highway than the rack + pannier system that I ran formerly, and this is also a big plus if you want to run a lighter bike with less power like these little 250s.

    Thanks Harold and Ryan from GL for getting this gear shipped in time for our trip.

    Some pics of the bikes and GL gear on the IDBDR.

    AUGUST SPECIAL: FREE Possibles Pouch with MotoTrekk Panniers purchase!

    Add a 3.5 liter waterproof pocket to the outside of your MotoTrekk Panniers with the roll-top Possibles Pouch:
    https://www.giantloopmoto.com/product/mototrekk-panniers/

    “Giant Loop MotoTrekk Panniers are reasonably priced for a set of quality, waterproof and bombproof soft bags. We liked how simple they are to mount and it gets even easier when used with the GL Pannier Mounting plates. We did find it a little challenging to get the mounting system tightened up for rough terrain, but it got easier as our familiarity grew with the bags. Overall, the MotoTrekks are rugged enough to handle adventure rides well beyond the beaten path.” – ADV Pulse

    We call them "hand savers" because they keep hands warm, dry and clean, grip heaters work better, controls are accessed instantly, and they mount and dismount in seconds with a new 18" Pronghorn Strap.

    Added some SW Motech Pro luggage racks to my Africa Twin and strapped on the GL Moto Trekk Panniers. In my estimation, these are nearly perfect as a mid size soft pannier. They look and work great on the AT and compliment the Klamath Tail bag.

    And they pack in or strap to any pannier the same as a piece of paper, so no luggage volume lost.

    Thanks Dirt Bike Magazine for reviewing Giant Loop's updated MoJavi Saddlebag with Possibles Pouch added:

    "We tested the Giant Loop MoJavi system with a Possibles Pouch. This adds an additional 3.5 liters of volume. Both the MoJavi and Possibles mount up very simply, and the new Pronghorn strap (uses stamped aluminum buckles, arrows line up for easy fastening, and the metal buckle is sheathed for scratch protection) is an improvement in mounting the luggage up. We stuffed them with a spare waterproof pullover; fit in tubes, tools, rags and spares; and can honestly say that we didn’t feel the luggage when we rode. Over months of testing we found the Giant Loop MoJavi to be super durable. They distribute the load nicely, and because we were carrying less of a body load, our long, tough off-road pulls were made easier. The zippers are super heavy duty and a bit tough to close, but beyond that, we consider this a big thumbs up for the dualsport/long-haul trail rider!"
