Giant Loop Video: Pronghorn Straps – How They Work

By | Giant Loop Gear | No Comments

These handy motorcycle straps have a million uses and should be part of every motorcyclist’s essential gear – better than duct tape!

Applying tension when you secure and release the Pronghorn Straps is key to getting a dead-solid connection to your motorcycle. This short video illustrates how the straps fasten and release.

Like the American Pronghorn, these straps are fast, tough and able to withstand the harshest environments. With sufficient tension, these straps can be used to secure all kinds of gear to your motorcycle, for both off road and road touring. Better than duct tape, you’ll find a million uses for this essential motorcycle gear, from holding a flashlight to carrying extra fuel to stabilizing luggage or making field repairs.

By | Blog | No Comments

Giant Loop’s Great Basin Saddlebag was in some great company in this month’s issue of BMW Owners News magazine, appearing on moto-journalist Sandy Borden’s article, “Times with Ted: Checking in with a Legend.”

Great Basin Saddlebag on moto-journalist Sandy Borden’s BMW G650GS with adventure motorcycle pioneer and author Ted Simon.

Yes, that’s THE pioneering, world traveling godfather of adventure motorcycle travel, author Ted Simon with Sandy and her hubby Terry Borden (two-thirds of the Adventure Trio). Looks like Sandy’s tripod rides nicely on the back of the Great Basin Saddlebag!

If you haven’t already, stop what you’re doing right now and go read Simon’s classic “Jupiter’s Travels“! Simon has literally inspired two generations to explore the world on motorbikes, and now his charity the Ted Simon Foundation encourages and assists travelers “in making an extra effort to develop their observations and insights into something of value for the rest of the world to share, whatever their medium of expression might be.”

Giant Loop Riders: Training for Tour of Idaho with MoJavi Saddlebag

By | Riders | No Comments

Hi guys! Tony, Rich and I had a blast last weekend riding Section 3 down to Union Creek and back. This was the first of two planned T1 shakedown rides. We were pelted by rain, sleet, and snow, turned back by snow three times and once by a 5′ diameter fir, and still had a great time. We covered 530 miles – about 150 on slab and 380 on dirt/gravel. We had planned on riding only 380 miles over the two days, but the snow caused us some pretty major detours. All in all, we were out 11 hours on Saturday and 12 on Sunday (including pie at Becky’s on Sunday!). It was a good test. We just wanted to tell you how well the Mojave’s performed. I’ll start by saying that they won’t be coming off our bikes any time soon! They stayed dry inside, stood up to quite a bit of brush, mounted securely, and were very easy to access. Neither of us even knew they were there. And, as you can see from the pictures, the Rotopax fit very nicely behind the bags with the stock mounting hardware (on ProBillet racks). You guys totally hit a home run with these. We’ll be picking up another bike very soon for Rich to ride on the T1 – the 2-smoker just isn’t going to work – so we’ll be buying another Mojave shortly. Thanks for a GREAT product, and for being really terrific guys to work with. BTW, we’re bummed about missing the Summer Lake ride! Have fun!!!
