Nick, a sponsored rider in Australia and owner of  Maschine Rides and Tours in Gisborne, Australia sent our Australian counterpart, Adventure Moto Australia this great pic of his KTM 1090 Adventure R kitted out with Mojavi Saddlebags and a Fandango Tank Bag Pro.

“Thanks very much for the hookup with the Giant Loop gear. It’s all working very nicely! We are 3 days in and we’ve got a pro photographer on the trip that got some amazing shots yesterday.”

BMW GS650 – Fandango Tank Bag Pro and Pannier Pockets

Customer, Dave, stopped in today to show us how his Giant Loop Pannier Pockets and Fandango Tank Bag Pro fit on his BMW GS650. You can see how the pockets fit nicely in a horizontal position on the bike’s large side fairing. Pannier Pockets can be integrated into all of our tank bag systems and come included with the Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag set up. The tank bag harness anchor straps fit underneath the seat and attach to the frame. The Fandango, at 8L capacity is a nice size for the medium sized touring bike.

Product of the Week – The Coyote Saddlebag

The Coyote Saddle Bag Roll Top is the rackless motorcycle luggage choice for hardcore off-road expeditions.

Above you’ll see the saddlebag fits well on KTM, Kawasaki, Honda, Yamaha, Husqvarna dual sport bikes and even a Ducati Monster!

The Coyote Saddlebag is the perfect choice for a super light set up. Weighing in at only 4.5lbs and and yeilding 39L of carrying capacity, it includes three waterproof dry pods and a Hot Springs Heat Sheild. This bag is one of our highest selling luggage options and is the choice for some amazing riders around the world.

The Honda Africa Twin and Giant Loop Mototrekk Panniers

 

Jeff, from Tucker Rocky recently sent us some photos of his set up on his Honda Africa Twin. He used Givi Quick release side racks (Tucker Rocky and Givi Part #PLR1144) for mounting, looping the quick release loops of the Giant Loop Mototrekk Panniers around the 4 corners to secure.

The bags mount securely with no movement and still leave a ton of space on top of the bike for a dry bag or top case.

Jeff also uses a Fandango Tank Bag Pro on his Twin. The medium sized tank bag is 8L in capacity, waterproof and attaches securely to the bike with a harness. Two sturdy side zippers make it easy to access the fuel fill or remove the bag entirely for security.

Customer Question: Great Basin Saddlebag vs Coyote Saddlebag, Tips for GL Mounts

By | FAQ, Fitment, KTM, Saddlebags, Tech Tips

Customer Question: Great Basin Saddlebag vs Coyote Saddlebag, Tips for GL Mounts

Customer email question:
Hi. I need some advice on mounting a giant loop great basin on a 2011 ktm 450.

Im having huge problems securing it to the back fender.
I also need the bag repaired. Because i couldn’t mount it properly, one of the straps completely tore off the back. Have you got any recommended repairers in Victoria Australia.

I bought your stainless mounts and attached them to the frame where my legs are. Problem is the boots are wearing the straps away at the mount. One of the straps also worked its way thru the groove and the bag completely came off the bike. I was thinking of welding the mount closed and just feeding the strap thru. Also was going to hammer the mount straight so it doesnt expose the strap to any wear.

Also have a 2008 250 with a coyote which seems ok. If you have any advice on this setup, it would be appreciated also.

Giant Loop’s email reply:
First, thank you very much for choosing Giant Loop for your adventures! I have CC’d our Australian distributor, Adventure Moto, so they can follow up with you regarding local repair options, etc. Adventure Moto has been our exclusive distributor in Australia since 2009, and we appreciate you supporting them with your business.

The short answer: Giant Loop’s Great Basin Saddlebag is designed to fit “virtually any motorcycle designed to carry a passenger.”

Your dirt bike is not designed to carry a passenger – it is not equipped with passenger pegs. See Packing Systems diagram.

The Great Basin Saddlebag sits on the passenger seat and anchors to the passenger peg mounts in a vertical position.

The Coyote Saddlebag is specifically designed for dirt, dual sport, endure and other bike types that are not built to carry a passenger. It mounts behind the seat and anchors to the frame/subframe/GL Mounts in a diagonal position. So, yes the Coyote Saddlebag fits both of your dirt bikes perfectly.

I you need additional packing capacity for the Coyote Saddlebag, add a Rogue Dry Bag and 2 Possibles Pouches.

Or, position some of your gear on the front of the bike with a Diablo Pro Tank Bag, Zigzag Handlebar Bag, Pannier Pockets and/or Fender Bag.

Regarding the GL Mounts – please see the attached photo of the Mount installed on the exhaust side of our KTM 500 EXC.

Giant Loop's stainless steel GL Mounts installed with round button-head bolt and anchor strap wrapped around mount to protect boot and pant leg from abrasion.

Giant Loop’s stainless steel GL Mounts installed with round button-head bolt and anchor strap wrapped around mount to protect boot and pant leg from abrasion.

Note that we have replaced the stock bolt with a button head bolt to help prevent wear from the square-edged bolt. Also please note how we wrap the extra webbing around the mount to protect our pants/boots from abrasion. These are simple steps that will instantly eliminate abrasion issues. With respect to your strap coming loose: The Mounts are designed for the webbing anchor strap to pull in a straight line, not at an angle. In our laboratory tests of the linear pull strength of our Mounts, the metal will actually bend before the strap pulls through when the force is in a straight line. The root problem may be that the Great Basin Saddlebag doesn’t mount in the correct position on your bikes, so the webbing anchor strap is pulled at angle. If you never want the strap to come out of the Mount even when it’s pulled at angle, then use metal tri-glide buckles to lock the strap into the Mount.

We and our customer have ridden many thousands of miles with our Saddlebags mounted without the GL Mounts. They are intended to be a convenience – they are not necessary components. If they are causing you problems instead of solving problems, you might consider simply anchoring the straps to the frame/subframe as we have done for year before we started making the GL Mounts.

I hope I’ve answered your questions and addressed your concerns. Please share this information with your riding friends and help us help riders avoid problems that are easily solved. And please follow up with Adventure Moto – and give them your business.

Go light, go fast, go far,
Team GL

Product of the Week – The Great Basin Saddlebag

A trusted staple in the Giant Loop line up, the Great Basin Saddlebag is the largest in our “loop bag” collection.

We have outfitted an assortment of motorcycles with the Great Basin, and it’s currently on the backs of motorcycles around the globe. In the montage above you’ll find the Great Basin Saddlebag easily mounted on a the Honda CRF250L, Rally Raid CB500X, and Africa Twin, the KTM 1190 Adventure R, the Yamaha WR250, the KLR 650 retrofitted with a sidecar, the Suzuki tu250x, a Yamaha R6 and something random in Nepal….just to name a few.

This bag will carry all that you require for a serious expedition or comfortably carry your weekend provisions.

What we love most about the Great Basin Saddlebag is it’s verstility. This bag, rides rackless, behind the rider where the passenger would sit. The “legs” of the bag affix to the passenger foot pegs or other solid mounting point in the same area and anchors at the rear of the bike via three straps on on an existing rear rack or integrated mounting point. The is bag is 68L in capacity and is sold with three waterproof dry pods which organize gear within the bag plus make it easy to haul things to your camp spot without removing the whole loop bag. A Hot Springs Heat Shield is also included with every bag to keep the Great Basin off the pipe.

The outer material is constructed of tough 22 oz. vinyl coated polyester reinforced with ballistic nylon and, like many of our bags the Great Basin has loops added to the sides of the bag that make it easy to add Possibles Pouches or just affix items with Pronghorn Straps. The “beavertail” cinch straps can be extend to allow for a Tillamook or Rogue Dry Bag if extra capacity is required.

Round the World Panniers on a (super-sweet) KTM 990

Photos by Jaume von Arend

Jaume recently sent his review of the Round the World Panniers  which he has installed on his KTM 990 in addition to his Klamath tail Rack Pack.

He continues to use a Coyote Saddlebag on his WR but has swapped out the saddlebag for our RTW panniers on the 990, now outfitted with SW-Motech racks, for longer trips. He’ll now be able to add a dry bag in place of the Klamath Tail Rack Pack if he needs to further increase volume.

Giant Loop Moto Packing Chart and Product Table

By | Blog, Camping, Dealers, FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Tech Tips

At Giant Loop Moto we are constantly getting asked all kinds of great questions on luggage set ups and how to pick the right gear.

Everyone eventually develops their own personal packing system and camping style, but until then it’s hard to know where to start.

You have to ask yourself, what is my ultimate goal? Am I going to be a day tripper? A weekend warrior? A long distance traveller? Live on the bike? Will I always be camping or find hotels along the way? Some of you will do both day missions and longer trips and you’ll need different set ups for each application —no one needs a Great Basin Saddlebag for a day trip (unless it’s to the grocery store), nor do you want to be deciding whether or not you can cram in that pair of flip flops for the week long mission exploring the Oregon coast (trust us, don’t be a hero, take the flip flops) Even further, you may have more than one motorcycle (you’re one of those aren’t you?) which each require completely different systems.

We have developed some handy tools to give you an overview of all Giant Loop has to offer.

One is a Giant Loop Product Chart with sizes, capacities and weights and the second a packing systems diagram to illustrate how our products fit on dual-sport, enduro and adventure touring set ups – both courtesy of the uber-talented Moser Graphics.

And, if you still have questions check out our array of blog posts on fitment for all kinds on motorcycles or contact us though our website, and Facebook page!

By | Blog, Camping, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, KTM, Panniers, Photos, Reviews

Our Siskiyou Panniers performed well in adverse conditions in the Hebrides.

“Very happy with my new panniers on first trip to isle of South Uist in the Hebrides.
5 hours ride there in a monsoon and five hours back even wetter.
Panniers fitted perfectly with 2 pronghorn straps and 2 heatshields,and never moved an inch.
Tent and sleeping bag kept bone dry.
Worth the money and the four week wait.”

Giant Loop Product Fitment On the KTM 1090 Adventure R

By | Camping, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, KTM, Video

Here is Giant Loop Moto Company Owner, Harold Cecil explaining fitment for the Mototrekk Panniers, Fandango Tank Bag Pro and Possibles Pouch on the new KTM 1090 Adventure R.

By adding simple side racks to the bike, the Mototrekk Panniers attach to the bike easily and once in place can be cinched down to virtually no movement even when empty. At 42 L capacity and weighing in a just under 6lbs the Mototrekks are our lightest, most compact pannier option. Great for weekend missions or pair them with one of our dry bags to increase capacity for long trips.

The Possible Pouch attaches perfectly to the KTM’s engine guard. Sturdy, secure and easy access for tools or a first aid kit.

The Fandango Tank Bag Pro adds 8L capacity at the front of the bike without compromising the rider’s position on the bike or view to handlebar accessories.

Siskiyou Panniers KTM 1290 Adventure

Siskiyou Panniers Reviewed on ADV Pulse

By | Blog, BMW, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, KTM, Panniers, Photos, Reviews

The Giant Loop Siskiyou Panniers were recently in a featured review on ADV Pulse.

“These ‘soft’ side bags are designed to offer the convenience and capacity (70 liters total) of hard panniers but with the rugged durability we’ve come to expect from the pioneering soft luggage company.”

Named for southern Oregon’s and northern California’s rugged and beautiful mountain range, Giant Loop’s Siskiyou Pannier waterproof soft luggage combines the convenience of hard panniers with all of Giant Loop’s performance advantages. Rugged, rackless, lightweight and stable. Secures to passenger footrest mounts and rides on rear rack and/or pillion seat. Flexible internal framesheet conforms to array of racks and motorcycle makes/models. Cross-over wings create luggage platform for Dry Bags and gear, add stability and protect seat. Mounts/dismounts in minutes.

ADV Pulse put together an excellent, comprehensive overview of the bags and their fitment on four separate motorcycles; the BMW R1200GS Adventure (with racks), KTM 1290 Super Adventure (no racks), KTM 990 Adventure R (with racks) and Suzuki V-Strom 1000XT (no racks).

“What we liked:

  • Bulletproof construction.

  • Large capacity bags with no racks required.

  • External pockets are nice for things you need quick access to.

  • Freedom of movement for aggressive off-road riding”

“One advantage of riding off-road with the Siskiyou Panniers is that they are large enough that you can often forgo a top bag on shorter trips.

In this configuration, you can position your body far back on the bike when you encounter difficult off-road terrain.”

Kawasaki Versys-X 300 with Coyote Saddlebag and Rogue Dry Bag

By | Blog, Camping, Dry Bags, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Kawasaki, Saddlebags, Tank Bags

Customer Doug just rode his new a Kawasaki Versys 300 from Virginia to Oregon, and he’s so pleased with his Giant Loop packing system that he stopped by the GL ADV Shop in Bend this morning to show us his setup!

His entire trip has been on pavement, so he created a simple quick-release rear anchor strap to mount the Coyote Saddlebag in front of his top box. Secured to the Coyote Saddlebag with the compression straps, he’s added a Rogue Dry Bag. And the slim Diablo Pro Tank Bag is perfectly proportioned for this small but capable machine.

Thanks Doug for choosing Giant Loop for your coast-to-coast adventure!

Coyote Saddlebag and Fandango Tank Bag Pro Fitment On Honda Africa Twin

By | Blog, FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Honda, Saddlebags, Tank Bags, Tech Tips

Nate, a local Bend customer, came by the Adventure Shop today with his brand new Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L to show us his fitting for his Coyote Saddlebag.

Honda Africa Twin and Coyote Saddlebag

Honda Africa Twin and Coyote Saddlebag

 

At 39L, the saddlebag fits perfectly behind the rider with room to spare for a dry bag or duffle to supplement bigger trips. Even with the passenger footpegs removed, the lower anchor points on the bag fasten nicely to the frame to keep the bag out of the way with zero movement. The shape of the Coyote lends itself well to this bike, as it angles forward instead of down thus  avoiding the wide pipe.

Conveniently the Coyote fender hooks fit perfectly and positively in the Twin’s existing hard luggage mounting points.

The Giant Loop Fandango is also a great fit on this bike, sculpting well over the tank. East to access the fuel fill and see the dash instruments.

Nate is about to head out on the Washington BDR. We thing this is a great set up for his trip!

2017 NIFTY 50 BEST NEW PRODUCTS – POWERSPORTS BUSINESS!

2017 Nifty 50 best new products award from Powersports Business Great Basin Saddlebag Roll Top

2017 Nifty 50 best new products award from Powersports Business Great Basin Saddlebag Roll Top

NEW 2017! Introducing the Great Basin Saddlebag Roll Top, a fresh update of the original biomorphic, horseshoe-shaped Saddlebag design that Giant Loop pioneered in 2009. The Great Basin Saddlebag Roll Top features a convenient rolling closure that seals out water and dust while maintaining all the unique “go light, go fast, go far” features of our zipper closure Great Basin Saddlebag.

Other enhancements include a greater range of compression and expandability (68 liters with one roll to seal out dust), sewn-on molded rubber badges, Giant Loop branded grab handles that double as side compression straps, a set of 3 RF-welded waterproof inner liner Saddlebag Dry Pods with air purge valves, and drains in the bottoms of the Saddlebag’s “legs” that allow water to escape if it manages to penetrate the highly water resistant out shell (yea, we understand – we’ve dunked our bikes in streams crossings, too!). Made in USA. Backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty against defects.

“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

The Great Basin Saddlebag Roll Top delivers everything needed to mount up hit the road:

Compare to the original Great Basin Saddlebag.

Expand the Great Basin Saddlebag Roll Top with Giant Loop’s adventure proof packing system:

SPECIFICATIONS
• Weight: 6 lbs with all included components

• Dimensions (fully packed):

56″ – bottom of pannier, across top to bottom of other pannier bucket
Basically the same as before, with a little more “doming” on top due to increased “front to back” distance.

10″ – height of bag in top center
Again, the difference here is mostly a result of the “front to back” measurement below allowing the top to arc more when stuffed full.

6″ – distance from inside to outside of pannier bucket bottom
This dimension didn’t change – I think this is simply a more accurate measurement taken at very bottom of the “leg.”

14″ – front to back in top center
This is where/why we picked up an additional 10 liters of volume (60 vs. 50), by adding nearly 2″ in this plane. No change in the way the bag mounts or rides, just a bit roomier for sleeping bags and other lightweight, bulky gear in the top.

Materials
• Outer shell: 22 oz. vinyl coated polyester reinforced with ballistic nylon
• Military-spec fasteners
• Custom-woven ballistic webbing on lower anchor straps
• Nylike webbing compression straps

How to Use Giant Loop’s Stainless Steel Mounts and Metal Tri-Glide Buckles

By | Blog, Dry Bags, FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, New Product, Snow, Tech Tips, under $60, Video

How to Use Giant Loop’s Stainless Steel Mounts and Metal Tri-Glide Buckles

Here’s a simple trick to make it virtually impossible for webbing anchor straps to slip out of stainless steel Giant Loop Mounts, even if you forget to tighten straps (we know, “it” happens). By threading a metal tri-glide buckle onto the webbing anchor straps on Giant Loop’s Revelstoke Tunnel Bag, Torngat Tunnel Bag or Giant Loop’s adventure proof motorcycle gear, such as Saddlebags and Panniers, you can create a dead solid, secure anchor point that also functions as a “quick release.” Thank you for choosing Giant Loop for all of your adventures! #golightgofastgofar

How to Pack a Small Motorcycle for BIG Adventure: Globe Crosser Steph Jeavons + Rhonda the Honda CRF250

How to Pack a Small Motorcycle for BIG Adventure: Globe Crosser Steph Jeavons + Rhonda the Honda CRF250

“Oh my goodness! All packed up. Its been so long I nearly forgot how to do it! Time to move on again!” – Steph Jeavons, One Steph Beyond

Nearly a year ago, Giant Loop hosted world traveler Steph Jeavons here in Bend, Oregon for an evening slideshow of her travels on Rhonda the Honda CRF250L. While she was here we had the opportunity to upgrade her luggage and gear for another round of travel. Packing all of the essentials for months of living off a motorcycle presents challenges – especially with a relatively small bike like the Honda CRF250L. Small bikes are a specialty here at Giant Loop, and by using our modular, customizable adventure proof packing system, we were able to help Steph organize her gear into multiple small compartments, providing quick, easy access – and helping balance the load on both the front and rear of the bike.

Here’s how Steph Jeavons packs her Honda CRF250L the “go light, go fast, go far” Giant Loop way:

TAIL OF HONDA CRF250L
* Great Basin Saddlebag: Fits virtually any motorcycle built to carry a passenger, anchoring to the passenger pegs and riding on the passenger seat.
* 2 x Possibles Pouches: Tool, tubes and other gear kept handy with external pockets designed to integrate with Giant Loop’s Great Basin, Coyote and MoJavi Saddlebags – and used independently as universal tool and gear pouches.
* Columbia Dry Bag: A large bag for a small bike, but Giant Loop’s double-ended Dry Bags come in three sizes for all bike types and packing options.

FRONT OF HONDA CRF250L
* Fandango Pro Tank Bag: Roomy enough for cameras and essential gear, trim enough for off-road riding while standing on the foot pegs.
* Pannier Pockets: Integrate with Giant Loop’s Tank Bag Harness – and can be used independently – to extend gear carry capacity to the front of the bike.
* Fender Bag: A spare tube or other relatively small, lightweight essential strap onto the plastic fenders of most dirt bikes – and Giant Loop’s Fender Bag stays on, even in the roughest riding.

Giant Loop Rider Steph-Jeavons's Honda CRF250L packed for 'round the world adventure with Giant Loop's adventure proof packing systems and gear.

Giant Loop’s super rugged, universal gear pocket, the Possibles Pouch™ adds easy access storage capacity to Giant Loop’s Saddlebags and Panniers, as well as anchoring to engine guards, crash bars, tail racks — and any other secure attachment point on virtually any motorcycle make or model. Includes 2 heavy-duty webbing and thumb-lock buckle straps, and webbing daisy chain loops to provide many options for securely attaching the Possibles Pouch.

Available as Possibles Pouch only or in combination with our stretch polyurethane Pronghorn Straps, which increase the attachment options for a variety of bikes.

Add the Traveler Shoulder Strap to make a handy shoulder bag for off-bike adventures.

The Giant Loop Possibles Pouch also can used in conjunction with Giant Loop’s MoJavi Saddlebag, mounting in top center position.

Customer Review: “Can’t Sing Enough Praises” About Coyote Saddlebag + Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag on Suzuki DRZ400

Customer post on Adventure Rider:

“I am about to make a bold statement.”

“I finally got a chance to camp with my new Coyote Roll Top Saddlebag and Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag. It’s easily the best setup I have ever owned for dual sport and I’ve damn near owned them all at this point. Can’t wait to see where you guys go with your items in the future. I can say, please keep making roll tops, and please keep the current dry bags. Really awesome features in my opinion. I noticed all the straps are about as twice as thick as any other brand I have used as well. I beat my bike to death and none of this stuff ever moved. The saddlebags already have a few drops on them and I ran into a tree with the right side too. Can’t even see a mark on it anywhere. I also noticed I can put the saddlebags super far back. I never noticed it touching my butt or back the entire time, even riding whoops standing up, and this is with a hydration pack on. This is probably the first time I’ve camped with a setup and didn’t come home not liking something about it. Seriously, can’t sing enough praises.

“In these photos, I am packed with everything needed to tent camp basically indefinitely off the bike. I love that everything is in one place and not in 3 or 4 different bags strapped awkwardly on the back of the bike. Very clean.”

Giant Loop Rider: World Traveler Steph Jeavons on Honda CRF250L with Great Basin Saddlebag, Fandango Pro Tank Bag and Adventure Proof Motorcycle Soft Luggage

Message from Steph Jeavons: “Still loving the Giant Loop luggage😀”

Steph Jeavons has taken her Honda CRF250L further than any 250cc has been before, so far having ridden to 40 countries and covered over 55,000 miles! In March, we hosted her slide show presentation and her bike Rhonda here in Bend, Oregon. While she was here, Giant Loop had the opportunity to lighten her motorcycle and upgrade Rhonda the Honda CRF250L with our waterproof, adventure proof motorcycle soft luggage packing system: Great Basin Saddlebag, Tillamook Dry Bag, Fandango Pro Tank Bag, Possibles Pouches, Pannier Pockets and Pronghorn Straps. Go light! Go fast! Go Far!

From her website and blog:
Steph Jeavons set off from the Ace Cafe in 2014 to circumnavigate the world. She is still going, and apparently, happily lost!

Steph has been around motorbikes most of her life with both parents and one of her two sisters riding as well. Her grandmother even rode bikes during the war! Steph herself has been riding since the age of 21. I think you can safely say it’s in the blood. In 2008 she set up her own off-road motorcycle school in the UK as well as desert tours in Morocco alongside the British Dakar rider Mick Extance.

Steph has ridden across the Atlas mountains and in the Sahara five times. She has crossed the US coast-to-coast four times, got muddy in Wales with names like John McGuinness and, just once, nearly punched Carl Fogarty in the face! Steph also worked with Nick Sanders setting up his expedition centre in Machynlleth.

She left all this excitement behind to pursue her dream of riding her motorcycle to all seven continents – solo!

‘I’m certainly no expert and I don’t confess to being a demon on two wheels. This adventure isn’t about speed. It’s not really even about the bike. It’s about living, learning and enjoying! Doing this trip solo on a bike just opens up all the senses and allows me to be part of my environment.’

Steph has taken her Honda CRF250L further than any 250cc has been before, so far having ridden to 40 countries and covered over 55,000 miles! Steph has survived extreme heat, freezing conditions, landslides and wind that blew her off her bike in Patagonia. She has camped, couch-surfed and stayed with fellow bikers along the way whilst avoiding the main roads and sticking to the dirt where possible. She touched down and rode her motorbike on Antarctica in February 2015 after successfully crossing the notoriously rough Drake Passage in a small sailing yacht.

Steph has given inspirational talks to motorcycle shows, groups and communities along the way. She also currently writes for Ride Magazine and ADV Moto as she continues her journey around the world on her little dirt bike named Rhonda.

Customer review: Giant Loop’s Roll Top Saddlebags “In A Class Of Their Own”

Customer post in our Vendor thread on Adventure Rider: “I just want to say you guys have hit a home run with the roll top design. The new internal pods with the air valves are amazing. This thing is so well made and In my opinion much more convenient than the zippered design I owned before, but I have always been a roll top kind of guy. Have loved Wolfman products for a while and wouldn’t buy anything else, but to me this bag is in a class of its own. I really hope GL continues to produce roll top bags and refine the designs. My Buckin Roll and the Coyote holds everything I need for a few days out on my DRZ400S. I’d also like to add, and this is important. I have soooooo much more butt room on the bike using your bags than any others bags out there right now! Thank you GL.”

When Rox Speed FX owner Chris took his new Honda Africa Twin for an adventure motorcycle tour this past summer, he chose Giant Loop’s Fandango Pro Tank Bag and Great Basin Saddlebag for his trip – and he sent us some great pics! You’ll notice that the large passenger handles on the Honda Africa Twin create a space between the pillion seat and the bottom or the Great Basin Saddlebag – a perfect spot to stow away an extra layer or additional riding gear.

GL Rider David Darcy Recaps His “Giant Loop Experience” After Multiple International Motorcycle Adventures Since 2012

GL Rider David Darcy Recaps His “Giant Loop Experience” After Multiple International Motorcycle Adventures Since 2012

MY GIANT LOOP EXPERIENCE
If you’re thinking of doing that big adventure, one of the first decisions you are going to have to make is, are you going to use hard of soft luggage?  When I started adventure riding I initially chose aluminium panniers as I thought they would offer better theft prevention, be laster longing,  and offer protection for gear in the event of a crash.  Within about year all of those preconceptions had been smashed,  literally.  During a ride one of the pannier lids fell off and before I could retrieve it, it had been run over by a truck.  Within a month I had a decent crash and completely destroyed one pannier.  During a crossing of the Simpson Desert I found that the hard panniers would smash the backs of my legs in tough sand going with the potential of me being seriously injured. 
 
LONDON TO SYDNEY, 2012
In 2012, when preparing for our London to Sydney motorcycle adventure on KTM 690s my riding partner, Darren Higginson and I, made a decision to go with Giant Loop soft luggage.   We chose the Great Basin Saddle Bag, a Fandango Tank Bag and two dry bags.   We didn’t know it at the time, but this Giant Loop set up was a fantastic balance between luggage capacity and the need to keep luggage weight low.  The Great Basin was also well away from the rear of the foot pegs with little chance of injuring a riders legs if their feet were pushed back from the foot pegs. The GL gear held up for the 18,000 kilometre trip, with nothing breaking.  In fact when I returned to Australia, I gave my Great Basin and Fandango Tank Bag to a friend, who still uses it to this day.  Giant Loop products are made from a tough material that resists chaffing and deformation.  Last year I came off at around 60 kilometres per hour on a slippery muddy dirt road and the gear took the slide without any damage.

PIC 1: Over looking a valley in Kyrgyzstan with some of the best adventure riding in the world before us. My Giant Loop soft luggage set up for the London to Sydney ride; a Fandango Tank Bag, Great Basin Saddle Bag, and a couple of dry bags.  

 
When I returned to Australia I took on a number of big adventures including an unassisted west east crossing of the Simpson Desert,  later a south north crossing of the Simpson,  a numerous other adventures that clocked up thousands of kilometres including riding the South Island of New Zealand.  For these trips I changed to a set of Giant Loop Siskiyou Panniers.  I found the Siskiyou Panniers allowed me to lower and centralise weight distribution which greatly assisted riding in desert sand.  They also fitted perfectly with my Rally Raid Pannier Racks.  I upgraded to a Fandango Pro Tank bag as it allowed to more easily charge cameras in the tank bag.  I’ve alternated between a Tillamook and Rogue Dry bag.  The dry bags have been amazingly useful due to them being double ended.  If packed in a thoughtful way the bags allow you to very quickly access those things that are important, like warm layers,  tools, or some well earned food.   I generally keep food and clothes one end and spares and tools the other. 
 
Earlier this year I rode 17,000 kilometres in Russia from Samara to Magadan via the Road of Bones on a KTM990.   The bike was waiting for me in Russia for this trip and I flew in with my Siskiyou Panniers, a Fandango Pro Tank bag, and the incredibly useful Columbia Dry Bag as I knew they would fit on the bike and give me what I needed in what I knew would be a challenging environment.  The trip was tough, with thick clouds of dust,  hundreds of kilometres of mud and days of riding in constant rain.  When I finally reached Magadan, I jet washed the bags with my gear in them, and not one drop of water, dust or mud had entered the panniers.  During that ride I came off at speed on a concrete bridge covered in slippery clay.  As accidents go it was at the fair to medium end of the spectrum and the bike slid along the concrete bridge for a number of metres.  Apart from one Siskiyou pannier being slightly scuffed there was no damage.

PIC 2: My KTM990 having a rest in the deep grass of the Altay Mountains, Siberia, Russia.  Siskiyou panniers, Fandango Pro Tank Bag and Columbia Dry bag were a great combination for this challenging 17,000 kilometres where we rode an average of 900 kilometres per day. 
 
 
HIMALAYAN MOUNTAINS, KASHMIR, INDIA, 2016
I’m just back from riding the Himalayan Mountains in Kashmir India.  For this ride my mate, Nugget and I rented bikes and we had to pack really light.  I chose to go with my Columbia Dry Bag and Fandango Pro Tank Bag,  that fitted perfectly on my Bajaj 220 cc Pulsar road bike.   Nugget rode the new Enfield Himalaya and he took a Great Basin saddle bag and Fandango Tank Bag.   As expected the GL soft luggage didn’t let us down,  kept our gear dry and dust free.  It was the ideal soft luggage set up for this ride.
