Product of the Week – The Great Basin Saddlebag

A trusted staple in the Giant Loop line up, the Great Basin Saddlebag is the largest in our “loop bag” collection.

We have outfitted an assortment of motorcycles with the Great Basin, and it’s currently on the backs of motorcycles around the globe. In the montage above you’ll find the Great Basin Saddlebag easily mounted on a the Honda CRF250L, Rally Raid CB500X, and Africa Twin, the KTM 1190 Adventure R, the Yamaha WR250, the KLR 650 retrofitted with a sidecar, the Suzuki tu250x, a Yamaha R6 and something random in Nepal….just to name a few.

This bag will carry all that you require for a serious expedition or comfortably carry your weekend provisions.

What we love most about the Great Basin Saddlebag is it’s verstility. This bag, rides rackless, behind the rider where the passenger would sit. The “legs” of the bag affix to the passenger foot pegs or other solid mounting point in the same area and anchors at the rear of the bike via three straps on on an existing rear rack or integrated mounting point. The is bag is 68L in capacity and is sold with three waterproof dry pods which organize gear within the bag plus make it easy to haul things to your camp spot without removing the whole loop bag. A Hot Springs Heat Shield is also included with every bag to keep the Great Basin off the pipe.

The outer material is constructed of tough 22 oz. vinyl coated polyester reinforced with ballistic nylon and, like many of our bags the Great Basin has loops added to the sides of the bag that make it easy to add Possibles Pouches or just affix items with Pronghorn Straps. The “beavertail” cinch straps can be extend to allow for a Tillamook or Rogue Dry Bag if extra capacity is required.

Giant Loop Customers ‘Ride the Divide’

img007 (1)

Giant Loop customers, Brian Shaney and Dave Wenk, have been featured in Road Runner Magazine’s September/October issue. The two took on the ultimate challenge to ride the Continental Divide on a Honda XR650L and a Suzuki DR-Z400S. They started in northern Montana and will ultimately end at the Mexican border. Stage One, featured in this article saw them launching the trip in Eureka, MT and finishing in Rawlins, Wyoming.  They navigated the Montana back country, rode along Going-To-The-Sun Road in Glacier National Park, made friends with lizards, got their bones shaken by intense washboard gravel, visited a ghost town, and carved through herds of cattle, all in only the first three states of the trip.
Brian and Dave’s bikes are equipped with Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddlebag and Great Basin Saddlebag. Knowing that if they were going to on a hardcore journey like this, they needed some hardcore gear. Both bags are wrap around saddlebags that are waterproof and have 39-60 liters of carrying capacity respectivly. Rugged gear for rugged back road trips. This kind of trip is exactly what these bags were designed for, and we’re thrilled to see them trusted on such an epic adventure.

No matter where you’re going next, go light, go fast, go far.

Giant Loop Rider: CJ Designs Suzuki V-Strom DL650 Dual Sport Build with Siskiyou Panniers

CJ Designs Suzuki V-Stom DL650 Dual Sport Adventure Build

Giant Loop Rider and pro photographer Matthew?Fehrmann just sent us these shots of the CJ Designs Suzuki V-Strom DL650 dual sport build, and this looks like one super-bad machine! You’ll find more details about it here in this Adventure Rider forum thread. You may remember CJ Designs’ two-wheel-drive KTM 950 Adventure we displayed at Dealer Expo two years ago – and Matthew’s KTM 950 Adventure with the 10-gallon Safari Tank we displayed in our booth this year. The Siskiyou Panniers fit great – and look great – on this bike. A perfect choice for lightening this notoriously heavy and road-oriented bike – and making it Adventure Proof. Enjoy Matthew’s pics and comments:

Siskiyou Panniers on Suzuki V-Strom DL650“Craig just finished his DL650 project for our friend Matt, and it’s Bad Ass. I think you will dig it (the photo tells it all). After Matt ran the Siskiyou Panniers on a short loop in?Wisconsin he was handing them back to me and said, ‘I wish I had more time with these.’ I told him to run them in Colorado?on our trip and keep testing them. This is going to be a great time for me to get photos in action.”

Giant Loop Siskiyou Panniers on Suzuki V-Strom DL650“Here are a couple shots of his bike?and the luggage on the trail. I’m looking forward to giving them a go in October when Craig and I do another North Woods run.”

Tough bikes deserve tough luggage. Pick up the bike and keep riding, the Siskiyou Panniers didn't even budge or stratch.
