The latest addition to the growing family of Giant Loop motorcycle luggage solutions, the Great Basin Saddlebag is designed specifically for BMWs, Suzuki V-Strom, KTM 950, 990, Adventure and SE models, 690e, Kawasaki KLR 650 - and just about any other sport motorcycle or adventure touring motorcycle with the capacity to carry a passenger.

The waterproof Great Basin Saddlebag by Giant Loop securely attaches to most stock motorcycles equipped with both passenger footrest brackets and a rear rack and/or passenger grab bars. It mounts and un-mounts in seconds with a 3-point webbing and cam-lock connection system. Simply attach the rear connection plus two sides, and you're ready to ride.

True to the Giant Loop "go light, go fast" approach to high performance adventure touring, the Great Basin Saddlebag requires no racks, mounts, braces or sub-frame modifications. Motorcycle tail bag and motorcycle panniers are combined into a single biomorphic design.

All of this is contained within the waterproof Bomb Shell cover, constructed of ultra-durable truckers tarp reinforced with Cordura Ballistic cloth. Interior compartments are lined with high-visibility yellow.
