3,000 Kilometers in Southern Europe on KTM 690 Enduro with Fandango Pro Tank Bag, Coyote Saddlebag, Rogue Dry Bag

Email from UK adventure travel journalist Duncan McCallum about his May 2015 ride:

“The trip was a 3,000km mix of off-road and road trails, May 2015, in Provence, France, Corsica, Sardinia and the Italian Alps. Five out of the six bikes had GL products – mostly tank bags but Brian on the Yamaha XT660 also bought the Coyote Saddlebag and dumped his old system. They all saw my stuff from the last trip and went to Adventure Spec [Giant Loop's distributor in the United Kingdom] to buy it.”
