2018 Recap of Giant Loop’s Export Business

By | 10th Anniversary Giant Loop, Blog, Dealers, FAQ, News

2018 recap of Giant Loop’s export business. New importers in Netherlands, Argentina, South Korea, Brazil, China (yes, we are shipping American-made products to China!), Norway, Belgium and Mongolia. Plus, the countries where we already had established importers: Canada, United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia, India, Indonesia, Sweden, Laos, Poland, Italy, New Zealand, Colombia, Kenya, Japan, Denmark, Spain, Malaysia and Finland.

These companies seek us out. Not too shabby for a tiny company from Bend, Oregon USA! Our friend Austin Vince once told us that “if you’re famous outside your own country, then you’re doing something right.”

Here’s to the next Decade of Adventure at Giant Loop!

Clean Drink Adventures: Safe Drinking Water Solutions for Nepal, Delivered on Royal Enfield Himalayan

By | Adventure Touring, Blog, Camping, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Overland, Photos, Reviews, Riders, Royal Enfield, Saddlebags, Tank Bags, travel, Uncategorized

See links below to volunteer for Clean Drink Adventures trips in Spring 2019!

Clean Drink Adventures

“Packing up our tents, the women of the community thanked us for coming, sharing in a night of good fun, and for the gift of the MSR SE200 Community Chlorine Maker. And that’s how it always should be. It’s not uncommon for some organizations to enter a village and foist their aid on unsuspecting locals. We offered the water system to the villagers and they eagerly accepted. They gained a useful tool and we received a wonderful night of hospitality we won’t soon forget.”

Hello Giant Loop,

We’re back from our trip to Nepal and happy to report it was a huge success. Our Clean Drink Adventures team was able to provide safe drinking water solutions to as many as 700 people during our travels. In the coming weeks our volunteers on the ground will bump that number closer to 2,000 in the coming weeks.

As we traveled into the remote corners of the country, our medic, Jason McKinney, packed all of his medical equipment in Giant Loop bags. Not only did he keep us safe, but he was available to help anyone in need during out travels.

Below are some fun images and snippits you can use for social media. In the meantime I’m working on gathering more assets you can use for promotions.

The bags are currently in our office in Nepal and ready to do it all again. We have more trips planned for March, April, and May. The GL bags will be put to use every time.

Thank you so much for sending them along and we’re stoked to have GL as a CLEAN DRINK partner.

Safe travels,
Christophe

Doing good as you go doesn't always go as planned. While delivering safe drinking water solutions to remote communities in Nepal, our team medic Jason McKinny hit a slight rough patch. CLEAN DRINK ADVENTURES is a proud partner with Giant Loop. We use our bags to carry medical supplies and essentials to ensure our team is safe and our Nepali friends well cared for. You can join Giant Loop and CLEAN DRINK on the adventure of a lifetime. Spots are open for trips in the spring of 2019.
