By removing the large passenger handles on the 790 Adventure/ 890 Adventure/ 1090 Adventure/ 1190 Adventure R/ 1290 Super Aventure R and installing spacers in their place to secure the tail rack, Giant Loop’s Great Basin Saddlebag and Siskiyou Panniers fit this motorcycle like they were designed specifically for it.
These black anodized aluminum spacers take the place of the KTM 790/890/1090/1190/1290’s passenger handles, giving the factory tail rack a tidy, clean profile.
With passenger handles removed, the Siskiyou Panniers sit in the optimal position — panniers lids level with the top of the seat, not drooping over the sides. The Siskiyou Panniers’ cross-over section can be adjusted to its minimum width.
The Siskiyou Panniers mount in the usual way, per GL’s instructions included with the Panniers: The two side anchor straps secure to the passenger footrest mounts, and two anchor straps attach the D-rings on tail of the Panniers to the stock tail rack. We like to use 16 — Pronghorn Straps as our anchors, as they are quick, easy and super secure.
By securing the Siskiyou Panniers — wheel-side daisy chains to the stock KTM luggage mounts and drawing forward tension with the side anchor straps, the Panniers become solidly locked into position. Supported by the stock luggage mounts in multiple locations.
For even more stability, add another connection between the wheel-side daisy chain and the super-burly exhaust hanger.
GIANT LOOP MOTO when compared to Wolfman is what KTM is to BMW when it comes to soft luggage for your off road adventures. Both brands are great however GO LIGHT, GO FAST, GO FAR is the mantra of Giant Loop. As creators of the world's first Biomorphic soft motorcycle luggage, which made carrying gear for trail riders and light adventure bike riders a reality. It meant no more overloaded backpacks or strapped on gear ending in the chain of your bike or under the back wheel. The Giant Loop Great Basin, Coyote and super trim Mojavi Saddlebag systems do not need luggage racks fitted to your bike, however, the bags can comfortably and safely hold up to 68Litres of luggage (Great Basin) for days or weeks off the road. Innovative, strong and light as well as waterproof… Giant Loop has a luggage system, including hybrid panniers and large volume saddlebags to suit just about any motorcycle.
