Video: Coyote Saddlebag

The ORIGINAL rackless biomorphic horseshoe saddlebag for dual sport motorcycles, the Coyote Saddlebag is the updated version of the bag that launched Giant Loop in 2008. Made in USA. 100% waterproof. It’s the choice for hardcore off-road expeditions on dirt, dual sport – and adventure bikes. Carry gear for multi-day trips – and still work the entire saddle. Rides on rear fender and/or tail rack. Straps on to dirt bikes and dual sport motorcycles, no passenger pegs required. As Cycle World wrote: “The best hard-core saddlebag and tank-bag solution we’ve found is from Giant Loop…. There are cheaper solutions to carrying stuff, but these American-made pieces have been over mountains and across deserts with no issues.” (Cycle World Magazine, November 2015)

KTM 690 Enduro with Coyote Saddlebag Tours Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras

By | Blog, FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, KTM, Saddlebags | No Comments

Recent email from customer Peter who rides a KTM 690 Enduro equipped with Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddlebag:

Dear All,

Fantastic gear, used recently on a quick Easter trip from Mexico D.F. to Guatemala, Belize, Honduras and back. 5,700 km on all kind of tracks, sometimes really bad (not on the photos as I rather focussed on getting through the rough passages).

No wear or tear, perfect fit and the equipment stayed in place, whatever the track was.

Aluminium boxes really are something I try to avoid.

I like your slogan “go fast, go light, go far”. That is the essence of my preferred travel style, too.

Best regards, Peter

Tech Tip: Managing Zippers on Coyote Saddlebag and Great Basin Saddlebag

By | FAQ, Saddlebags, Tech Tips | No Comments

Email from customer: “Hi, love my Coyote Saddlebag mounted on the KTM 500 EXC but the downside to every trip is my stuggle with the zipper. Man I get pissed. Am I missing something? Any way to make it operate easier? Thanks, C”

Hello Cal,

Dang, sorry to hear your zipper is giving you fits. Some things to try:

* Wash the Saddlebag with warm, soapy water, give it good rinse and let it air dry. Dirt and dust particles are usually the biggest challenges for zippers.

* Lubricate the zippers. There are commercially available zipper lube products, but often a little soap, wax or even lip balm will help.

* When you get into the bag, first roll the storm flap back out of the way, then roll the flap back over the zipper to keep it protected after you close the bag.

* Avoid over packing. When the Saddlebag is not stuff drum tight, the zippers are much easier to manage. Consider using our Possibles Pouches to add external pockets, or a Rogue Dry Bag to expand the Saddlebag – compartmentalizing gear makes it easier to access the things you need during the day of riding and helps prevent the zipper from buckling being tightly stuffed.

If you’ve tried everything, then there is an outside chance that you got a defective zipper. If you think this is the case, please print, fill out and include a copy of the attached warranty and repair return form with your CLEAN bag. Use RMA # [today’s date]. If there is a defect, we will repair or replace the Tank Bag at no charge to you.

Thank you for choosing Giant Loop for your adventures,
Team GL

Giant Loop Riders: 400-Mile “Lost Coast” Dual Sport Weekend on Honda CRFs with MoJavi Saddlebag, Klamath Tail Rack Pack, Pannier Pockets, Ochoco Enduro Tail Pack

By | FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Honda, Reviews, Riders, Saddlebags, Tank Bags, Uncategorized | No Comments

Cory and his buddies recently enjoyed an “epic” dual sport tour in Northern California!

Hello at Giant loop,

I thought I’d send you a few shots from our most recent adventure from the lost coast. Epic 400 mile two day ride with fantastic weather and terrain conditions. Thanks for the great gear. I put it through the ringer with brush, rocks, mud and an exit or two in the in a mud hole and on the gravel. Performed awesome. The waterproof liner for the Klamath tail pack fit perfectly and after several water crossings and a swim in the mud I opened it a the end of the day to find a puddle of water on top of the liner and my wallet, phone, and spare goggles dry as a bone. Look forward to lots more use as our riding season here on the lost coast is just getting started. You guys make it down this way and we’ll take you on a giant loop of our own.
Thanks again
Corey and the riders of the lost coast.

P.s. The pannier pockets with a 1.8 liter platypus hoser hydration bladder worked awesome, back up 1 liter on the other side. 1st ride without a pack on my back! It made a huge difference at the end of the day.
