“I have had a set of MoJavi Saddlebags on the guide bike for over five years…. that’s over 100,000 km of abuse and other than having to change the straps that go around the chassis on numerous occasions due to my boots wearing them through, I cannot fault them. An amazing product that I don’t hesitate to recommend.”

John Griffiths, Moto Adventures Morocco

Hot Springs Heat Shield™ (includes stainless clamp)


The MoJavi is designed to mount behind the seat directly to the fender or to a GL Tail Rack, but can also be positioned according to personal preference. Once positioned in the desired location, the saddlebag is secured to the fender or GL Tail Rack using the two included fender hooks and Pronghorn Strap. After mounting the saddlebag to the fender or GL Tail Rack, two side mount straps secure the MoJavi directly to the subframe or frame and hold the saddlebag firmly in place.

Optional GL Mounts allow one to secure the saddlebag to existing bolt-mounted points to keep straps away from hot exhaust components. An included Hot Springs Heat Shield prevents the MoJavi Saddlebag or side panels from making direct contact with exhaust components.

    I love the fact that these saddle bags have rode close to 5,000 miles across a variety of terrain from forest service roads to tight enduro single track all while causing me zero uncertainties. Fitting snug with a slim profile allows these saddle bags to perform great in all off-road conditions. I have never had to be concerned whether the saddle bags would ever dis-mount themselves and I have not once even had to re-adjust the straps. They have even endured a few crashes without issue or coming lose from the bike. All this adds up to me having one less thing on my mind and lets me ride instead of worrying about or fiddling with equipment on the bike. But if I had one super favorite thing that I loved about the MoJavi Saddle Bags is that I’m able to carry the load of ride day necessities lower, with a slim profile, and I don’t’ even notice that they are there right behind my legs.

    If you are in the market for an off-road luggage system that can carry your day tripper cargo and allow your dirt bike to stay nimble and retain its slim profile then the MoJavi Saddle Bags should be at the top of your shopping list. Digging around on the internet I have heard comments concerning price and yes some consider them pricey at $199 ($199 is a new lower price tag) but these high quality bags are made in the USA and compete against low-priced products globally. Remember the ole saying “you get what you pay for”. Because my WR450F is outfitted with the Mojavi Saddle Bags I have defiantly enhanced my dual sport adventures, having more fun, and properly prepared.

    Moto Aventures is an off road motorbike tour operator based in Morocco. We run over 20 tours a year with each tour being a minimum of 1000km of hard off road.
    I have had a set of Mojave Saddle bags on the guide bike for over 5 years (the bike has been changed 3 times but the Mojave is the same)….that’s over 100, 000km of abuse and other than having to change the straps that go around the chassis on numerous occasions due to my boots wearing them through I can not fault them. An amazing product that I don’t hesitate to recommend.

    All I can say is wow!! Wish I had these years ago but always thought they would be in the way or flop around on the bike. Well, they are not in the way (you forget they are back there) and they do not flop around at all. I ride a 2013 KTM 500 exc and have over 9000 miles of bush riding on it. I have ridden the tour of Idaho and we carried all our gear in KLIM backpacks. It was exhausting and so fatiguing to carry gear that way. I just mounted my first set of Mojavi bags this past week and put on over 600 miles on 3 days of dual sport trips off road. It felt absolutely amazing to get that weight off your back. I never even felt tired at the end of the day. The added bonus is you can now take everything you really should take on a remote ride, rather than compromise because of the weight and bulk. So in the end I had more energy, felt better and was able to carry everything I wanted to bring. Big thanks to Giant Loop!! Now if only I could stop regretting the past……

    The Mojavi Saddle Bags are one of the best things ever. I have used them for about two years now… I think. Short trips or long it is nice to pack snacks and some misc items needed for the ride. Recently did an overnighter and had everything I needed in the bags and my backpack. Sometime I swap between my 99′ RM125 (ha I know) and the Husky 350. I haven’t noticed them really at all on either bike. I love the GL products and will continue to use them. Just picked up the ZigZag bag and stocked on that as well! Keep it up GL

    Hands down the best performance saddle bags available! Ultra durable, simple & clean design. So many other options on the market are so overbuilt they look and perform horribly.

    I’ve covered multiple states & countries with the go-to Mojavi’s! They keep on kick’n! Looking forward to many more WLF events & rides with these guys. Thanks again for the amazing product GL!

  7. Chaz

    These bags by far are the best way to distribute weight on your bike. I’ve tried front fender bags, rear fender bags and carried way too much on my back before finding these incredible saddlebags. I found these were the best bang for your buck and they are the best option. I would highly recommend these for medium to long haul dual sport rides. No more fidgeting with sub par packs, and more time enjoying the ride. Thank you Giant Loop for making such high-quality products.

    I got a Mojavi Saddlebag system just over a year ago to put on my KTM 350 EXC to do the Tour of Idaho TI challenge. The goal was to get the bike outfitted with the highest quality and most durable gear and parts possible so the Mojavi rackless saddlebag was the clear choice. Given the rugged nature of the remote Idaho singletrack that the event would traverse, durability was one of the most important factors in choosing bags. The design of the Mojavi bag allowed for additional accessories such as Giant Loop Fuel Bags to be fastened over the rear fender for additional or specialized storage. The placement of the bag and compact design allowed for full unimpeded movement on the bike. During the 10 days on the trail we covered over 2000 miles. Rivers were crossed and gear stayed dry. Bikes were dragged under trees and through brush, with no issues. The bag performed exceptionally well and held up to the challenge of a Tour of Idaho finish. I bought a new bike after the tour, but my original Mojavi bag is going right on it!

    Mojavi reckless saddlebag is the perfect size bag for a day long adventure ride. The mojavi has an ingenious mounting system utilizing two fender hooks and their pronghorn strap. I packed my 32liter jug and lunch on one side along with tools on the other side. Even had spare room for a jersey. Just did a 250 mile ride with 70 miles of offroad with some pretty bumpy rocky sections. Bag stayed put. Unlike some other soft bags I’ve had, the mojavi has a vinyl coating….so a quick rinse and wipe down takes that dust off.

    I have used the MoJavi saddlebag on my KTM 350 for 2 years. I have been on deep sand whoops in Baja and the rocky trails of Taylor Park Colorado. I have involuntary left the bike while it was still moving. The only time I could tell the bags were on the bike was the deep sand whoops, I felt them flopping. Not surprising since I had a lot of tools in the bags. If attached correctly these bags don’t change position appreciably on the bike even after bouncing and falling. The bags are well made so no damage so far. I use the soft strap between the fender and fender bracket for mounting. I bought an extra soft strap to put on a second KTM which helps with a quick change. I also found using pieces of bicycle inner tube do a good job of holding strap ends.

    I have been with other riders using different brands of small saddle bags. Some have complained of tearing, excess movement or bag interference. The MoJavi has all ways been the best by far.

    I ran a set of Mojavi Saddlebags on my WR450F for ~2 seasons before I went full to moose inserts and a full minimalist tool kit (only running a Possibles pouch now.
    These fit a lot of gear: I had 2 tool rolls (split a lot of tools between sides), a spare front heavy duty tube and a Gatorade or 1L MSR fuel bottle depending on if I was going out for a short (no Camelbak) or long ride (Camelbak).
    I knocked off one star because the velcro and hook strap holding it to the fender kept slipping and coming loose – despite keeping them snug at the beginning and throughout rides. Now… I ride hard and didn’t let these slow me down – getting a few feet of air and hammering whoops on single & double track so I had to take that into consideration. My solution was to pierce the material and literally bolt it to my rear fender with large washers to prevent the bolts from pulling through the material. Once I did that – they were rock solid and NEVER came loose.
    As far as build quality and durability goes… I went down multiple times in super rocky Colorado terrain, on hills, sliding through decomposed granite in high speed offs… you couldn’t even see any damage unless you knew where to look and got up within a foot of them! Even the high speed slide only left very minor tickles on the side of them, not deep scratches or even noticable scuffs.
    I would definitely recommend them for the less aggressive of riders – and even for more aggressive riders if you find a good way to really secure them to the rear fender.
