    I just added the GL Coyote and they work ok. The way I fitted them they didn't even touch the pipe and left most of the rear rack available. Not quite as good as they'd fit on my 500 exc, but still plenty of seat room. What I didn't consider, though, was the sand getting in between the bags and the side panels so now I have two nice scuff marks on my brand new 790. :) Can't look new forever.

    I don't really worry about crash protection with this bike. I hava an f800 GS that I added all that stuff, and quite frankly it didn't do much and I got tired of the weight. On this bike I'm trying to keep the weight low so you won't see any engine guards or other stuff.

    I looked at my pics and none of them really show the fit, but I'll try to get one next time I load them up. The coyote is a little tight for a 2 day trip, but it's doable.

    I noticed some guys running their bikes without the side panels when they have soft luggage strapped on. The only thing you would give up is the OE tool storage.

    Some protection film will stop that scuffing. My coyote ate away at my finish on my 690 after a few thousand miles. But really, any soft bag will eventually do the same.

    Will be doing the protection film this go around. Especially strapping straight to that sexy orange frame.

    @windblown101 I hope you packed warm clothes. Nights up here are already down to 50 degrees. Great photos BTW. Looks like it's a great trip so far. :beer

    Some gorilla tape on the frame where the bags touch the frame :-) Makes the bike alot smaller on the rear, to take of the plastic :-)

    Thanks! It's actually pixaloop, you sort of draw over your photo where you do and don't want it to move. Still addictive.

    Ah, never thought of that. Not sure if it would help now, but if I can recover the shine I'll consider the film or the removal. I have a trip down to Baja in Oct so I should figure it out before then.

    I was at a loss as to where I'd find forward tie down points with even the modest Kriega 20L pack I carry on the bike, until I removed the plastics. Once that orange frame is revealed the tie downs become a no brainer. What a lovely option to have available with only a key turn, and a few snaps.

    I'm kind of digging the way that Mosko setup looks. Review?
    I may decide to sell me Giant Loop and upgrade.
    How many litres of store do you get?
    Which model(s)
    Time to mount, pack, unpack?

    Still heading west. Some pics from Michigans Upper Peninsula.

    Camping on on Lake Superiors south shore.

    No shortage of sand. ;)

    Forest roads, two track, single track, and huge sand pits. I could happily spend a lot more time here but got to keep moving.
