    Looking for some input in whether to install pannier racks (Probably the SW Motech quick release racks) on my 790 Adventure or just go with the Giant Loop coyote bag without racks. I was thinking the pannier racks would add a little crash protection at the rear of the bike, however I do not necessarily want to add additional weight. The giant loop bags would save weight, however would add minimal crash protection.

    Any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated.

    Don’t crash. Problem solved.

    Giant loop coyote has my vote

    Someone stole your plate!

    As for racks, Meh... I've gone both ways and either works, though in the last few years I've stuck with rack-less setups. Latest set-up for trips is a Mosko Reckless 80. I've used the Reckless 80 on a 690 Enduro, 800XC, and now a 790 Adventure R.

    can you provide a link to the vendor who sold you those graphics? Or did you just download a template and design them yourself?
