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’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.

Also available is our FENDER BAG, a Possibles Pouch + Rubber Boa Straps for easy fender attachment for dirt bike plastic fenders.

Named for the leather pouches carried by frontier explorers to keep critical gear, or “possibles,” in one handy location. The Possibles Pouch is perfect for the many relatively small, lightweight motorcycling essentials: 21″ front inner tube, snacks, beverages, gloves and tools.

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.
