Pronghorn Straps and Chainsaw

Attach your Chainsaw with Giant Loop Pronghorn Straps

Giant Loop Pronghorn Straps Will Hold Your Chainsaw

Rider Chris Miksovsky of Humangear sent us these great shots of his 2015 KTM 350 EXCF with our Mojavi Saddlebags and Diablo Tank Bag. Chris also creatively uses the Pronghorn Straps to secure his chainsaw when doing trail maintenance – a testament to how much those straps can handle! Available in 5 lengths and two widths, the Pronghorn Straps are an item that we should all have tucked in a bag on our bikes. The strong and super-stretchy polyurethane straps can be used to secure all manner of items to motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs and Snowmobiles.

Fall Riding in Austria with the Mojavi Saddlebags

By | Blog, Giant Loop Gear, KTM, Photos, Saddlebags, Snow

At Giant Loop we pride ourselves in knowing that our gear is getting put through the paces daily–in all sorts of weather conditions, around the world. Wolfgang, a Giant Loop rider from Austria sent us these great shots of his ride in Italy with friends on their KTMs. Their bikes were outfittted for light, fast day tripping and the Mojavi Saddlebags suited their needs perfectly.

Looks as though Europe is getting an early winter as well!

First of all thank you for your cooperation. We were very happy about it!
–how important the Giant Loops are for us. This was now two weeks ago, where we climbed in the Italian region Piemont, using partially old military-roads and also “no ways”, up to a height over 3.200 meters!

Harold, whether it is sunshine, rain or snow, you “never walk alone” with the GLs.In the indoor area always dry as well as at minus degrees, the zipper can open loosely! In this sense a beautiful working week, warm greetings from the foggy Austria!

Thanks for riding with Giant Loop Wolfgang! Go light. Go fast. Go Far!

Mojavi Saddlebag and Klamath Tail Rack Pack Featured In Favorite Rides Magazine

The Giant Loop Mojavi Saddlebag and Klamath Tail Rack Pack are featured in the fall issue of Favorite Rides and Destinations Magazine. The quarterly e-zine showcases incredible riding destinations around the world and highlights new and noteworthy products.

Favorite Rides and Destinations magazine review on mojavi saddlebag

“Into the MoJavi’s two side pockets go heavy items like my tool roll, tire irons, air pump, first-aid kit and an extra water bottle or two. Waterproof zippers seal the pockets and everything is held firmly in place with outer cinch straps. Into the Klamath’s zipperless, nested clamshell bag (its lid is secured with adjustable quick-release straps) go items I need quick access to, such as a hat, sunblock, snacks and an extra base layer. Inside the Klamath is a zippered mesh pocket, a removable, adjustable divider and a removable, waterproof Dry Pod bag, and on top is bungee netting that’s perfect for stashing a rain jacket.”

Specifically designed to carry just the essentials needed for a day trip or trail ride, the MoJavi Saddlebag is the rackless, slim, trim bag for inner tubes, tools, fluids and other save-a-ride necessities. Straps on. Stays on. No matter what. No side luggage racks required.

Our Klamath Tail Rack Pack keeps gear organized and easily accessible, securing to virtually any motorcycle tail rack. The 4-liter soft luggage case features a zipper-less nested clamshell design inspired by classic motorcycle rally racing packs. Includes waterproof inner liner Dry Pod.

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

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.

Giant Loop MoJavi Fuel Safe Bladder

By | Giant Loop Gear, holiday gifts for motorcyclists, New Product, Racer, Saddlebags, Snow, stocking stuffers, Tech Tips

UPDATE: November 6, 2015
Apologies. Our manufacturing partner temporarily has put production of our fuel bladders on hold. We’re hopeful that we will have a revised design from them in the coming weeks, and that we will have production units ready to ship early in 2016. Thanks for your patience – innovation presents unique challenges.

MoJavi Fuel Safe Bladder

Giant Loop Fuel Safe Bladders conveniently transport 1 gallon of hydrocarbon fuel for power sports in collapsible welded film containers that weigh less than 1 pound and roll up flat when empty.

Video: How to Mount Coyote Saddlebag + MoJavi Saddlebag on Late Model KTM, Husqvarna Fenders

By | FAQ, Fitment, Husqvarna, KTM, Saddlebags, Snow, Tech Tips, Video

Here’s how to use the loop of our custom-woven Ballistic nylon (included with Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddlebag and MoJavi Saddlebag) instead of the Fender Hooks to anchor the bag to the rear fender. Simply loosen the bolts holding the two halves of the rear fender together enough to thread the webbing between the upper fender and the under-fender support. Check webbing positioning: Saddlebag should sit right behind seat when side anchor straps are tensioned. Retighten bolts to sandwich webbing between fender components, positioned to anchor Saddlebag behind rear seat when side straps are tight. Thread webbing through underside of Saddlebag in pass through thumb-lock buckles – push the stiff webbing through and pull to tight to finish. When Saddlebag is not on bike, use buckle, wire tie or other simple method to prevent loose webbing ends from dangling into hot exhaust. Go light, go fast, go far!

Giant Loop Tech Tip / FAQ: Coyote Saddlebag + MoJavi Saddlebag Anchor Options For Newer KTM + Husqvarna Models

Giant Loop’s Dustin Cary roostin’ the KTM 500 EXC with MoJavi Saddlebag on trails about 10 minutes ride from the shop.

Yes! We have a 2013 KTM 500 EXC here at Giant Loop – love this great bike! But there are some fitment challenges with the KTM EXCs Husqvarna FEs and other late model dirt bikes with double-thickness rear fenders and under-seat fuel tanks. The fender hooks on the Coyote Saddlebag and MoJavi Saddlebag cannot get a proper “purchase” on the lip of the fender plastic. Here are some alternative mounting options – all tested and proven on many bikes over thousands of miles of demanding riding.

Giant Loop's Harold Olaf Cecil on an Oregon backcountry solo tour with Coyote Saddlebag on KTM 500 EXC.

Simple, Clean Solution: No drilling or mods required! Remove the fender hooks from the Coyote Saddlebag or MoJavi Saddlebag and replace them with the included mounting strap (length of ballistic webbing packed inside the new bag). If you have a tail rack, just thread the webbing through the rack and back into the saddlebag. Here’s how to do it without a tail rack:

Loosen the bolts in taillight assembly/fender support (black plastic shown below) from the subframe and fender.

Thread the the ballistic webbing strap between the fender and taillight assembly/fender support and retighten bolts to sandwich webbing between the two fender layers.

IMG_0405

IMG_0404

Once the strap is centered, re-tighten the screws and bolts that secure the taillight assembly. This should tension the strap under the fender, so it doesn’t slide around, providing a solid mounting position.

IMG_0403

Then thread the mounting strap through the thumb-lock buckles (where the hooks were before) inside the Coyote Saddlebag or under the center Tool Pouch on the MoJavi Saddlebag.

We use a spare side release buckle to hold the strap ends, when a bag isn’t mounted.

IMG_0417

With the MoJavi Saddlebag, the top of the base can be tucked under the rear lip of the seat. When tensioned down, this makes a dead-solid connection. But this positions the bag farther forward, can stress seat connectors, and isn’t an option at all for the Coyote Saddlebag.

Another Solution: If you’re not adverse to drilling some small holes in your fender, the footmans loops make a clean solution. All you really need is one solid anchor point, but we’ve installed two.Install footmans loops in the middle top of the fender (be careful not to drill into wiring!) and use the webbing loop included with the Coyote Saddlebag and MoJavi Saddlebag, instead of the fender hooks.

 

 

Stop Scuffs and Scratches!

If you don’t want your new plastics to look like the white side panels in the pic above, Giant Loop now offers heavy-duty Vinyl Protective Film to eliminate scuffing where the bags make contact.

Tech Tip: How to Install MoJavi Saddlebag and Coyote Saddlebag on KTM 690 Enduro

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

The KTM 690 Enduro’s unconventional rear fender fuel fill access presents on a small challenge for riders using Giant Loop’s MoJavi Saddlebag or Coyote Saddlebag. Here’s Eric from RideADV.com’s new motorcycle. Can you guess how long it takes to to get to the fuel fill? Watch the end for GL sales manager Dustin’s mountain bike wheelie departure, too – we love everything on two wheels here! NOTE: We HIGHLY recommend installing the Hot Springs Heat Shield with the MoJavi Saddlebag! #golightgofastgofar

Giant Loop Rider: Geoff’s Suzuki DRZ400 with MoJavi Saddlebag and GL Mounts

Local rider Geoff’s Suzuki DRZ400 is about as nicely set up as any we’ve seen, with Trail Tech Voyager GPS, Race Tech Suspension, full Yoshimura Exhaust and aftermarket carb. Here are some details about his MoJavi Saddlebag installation using the new Giant Loop (GL) Mounts, which will work great with the Coyote Saddlebag and Great Basin Saddlebag, too. #golightgofastgofar

Geoff is using the Giant Loop GL Mounts, sharing a bolt point with his Suzuki DRZ400’s passenger peg mounts. GL Mounts help keep straps away from hot exhaust and shorten anchor strap length to maximize stability of Giant Loop Saddlebag installation.

Giant Loop GL Mounts universal soft luggage mounting solution

Geoff’s using a small spacer to set the Giant Loop GL Mount away from the passenger peg’s other bolt and to give plenty of room to work when anchoring Giant Loop Saddelbags and soft luggage to dirt bikes and dual sport motorcycles.

Giant Loop’s GL Mounts make a clean installation, with straps kept away from boots on both sides.

Since Geoff leaves the MoJavi Saddlebag mounted on his Suzuki DRZ400 all the time, he’s using a hard-mount bolt-on installation (which can also be done with Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddlebag).

MoJavi Saddlebag bolt-on hard mount on dirt bike

 

Two bolts through the dirt bike’s rear plastic fender and metal fender brace, a couple of washers and nylock nuts, and the Giant Loop Saddlebag is not coming off. Period.

Seat Time host Brian Pierce thought his racing was done when he blew up his bike at this year’s BAJA RALLY – then he and his father got inspired and prepped his dad’s 27-year-old Suzuki SP 200 so he could finish the race!

Says Brian: “Here’s the 1987 Suzuki SP 200 with the GL MoJavi Saddlebag ready for the final day! our bags worked great. Let me know if you would like more pics of the SP 200 with them on there. It was the perfect way to use the bike you had to conquer a 300+ mile day in Baja.”

Congrats Brian – undaunted!

Giant Loop Tech Tip: Saddlebag Strapping Location For Newer KTM’s

As I rig up and ride different Giant Loop packing systems on our 2012 KTM 500 EXC, I am always looking for a different solutions to strapping the right side. There is a factory heat shield covering the subframe, at the point I like to?thread the strap mount. There are several types of bolt-on hardware solutions submitted by riders, to handle mounting the strap on that side, but I was looking for a simpler method. ?Now, my method isn’t perfect and it does require an 8mm wrench for the initial install, but I didn’t have to add any parts to the bike!

This has been tested for about 100 miles of rough and there appears to be no ill effects to the bodywork, other than the usual dusty strap wear.

Method:
Loosen the lower mounting bolt on the orange side panel, at the bottom of the subframe.

Thread the mounting strap through the molded slot in the white side panel,

Wrap it around the subframe and pull to the front of the orange side panel.

Carefully replace the orange panel’s tab, into its slot in the white panel, so the tab and strap can both fit smoothly.

Replace the bolt/bushing, finish threading the strap through the buckle and tension, stowing the strap end so it doesn’t catch on something or burn.

To: Baja Rally

Subject: IMPORTANT NOTE: FUEL RANGE EXTENDED

Riders and Crews-

Due to at least one lengthy route on the BAJA RALLY 2.0, we will have a 205 mile (329km) special where we may not have a gas stop set up between 2 points 147mi apart. Its a situation we cant be sure of solving.

Therefore, the minimum gas range for riders and bikes has been raised to 150 miles indefinitely. Some riders will need to carry extra fuel on certain stages.

Saddlebags

The Giant Loop Mojavi Bag has been used widely in rallies all over the world for riders to carry water, tools and gas. These are lightweight easy to use saddle bags to carry up to a gallon of liquids. Riders are using TouraTech’s 2 liter bottles on each side of the Mojavi in some cases.
