And where are you going to sit ?


I think that the Giant loop coyote model fits the bike much better , smaller i know but designed to fit the XR and more offroad oriented bikes , the great bassin fits the bigger touring / more road oriented bikes ( bmw gs ,... ) better but it just looks wrong on the small piggy , but then you get the greater capacity so i guess that is what matters to you more .

More room than there looks Frosty. I did 100 miles that day without any problems. But I have reorganised and managed to get it further back giving me plenty of room. Very Happy 

Sorry Mauser, not selling the shrouds. I expect I'll be putting them back on with the stock tank when I get back. I'll be doing some green laning and want the option of swapping tanks.
