Soggy Adventure on a Honda CRF250L with Giant Loop Bags

By | Adventure Touring, Blog, Dirt bike, Dualsport, Enduro, FAQ, Fitment, Fuel, Giant Loop Gear, Honda, Panniers, Photos, Riders, Saddlebags, Straps, Tank Bags, trail bike, travel, Video

Here’s a great video by our friends at Dork in the Road of a Honda CRF250L equipped with our Fender Bag, Fandango Tank Bag, Mojavi Saddlebag, Gas Bag and Pronghorn Strap

It’s raining, and I’m out riding!  My latest dual sport adventure is a soggy, rain-soaked trip into the woods to explore some logging roads in various states of upkeep.  My Honda CRF250L performs admirably on well-maintained roads, while hopping over downed trees, and exploring long-abandoned and completely overgrown tracks.  Only a dual sport motorcycle could possibly handle all the different types of terrain, fallen rocks, narrow spaces, and other obstacles I encountered on this rainy day logging road dual sport exploration adventure.” — Dork in the Road

Giant Loop Supports Powersports Dealers

Why Giant Loop Supports Powersports Dealers

Since launching Giant Loop in 2008, it has been a goal to work with the best dealers in powersports. We believe dealers play a vitally important role in our industry: Dealers are not just stores selling bikes, gear, parts and service at a markup. YOU ARE DREAM FACTORIES!

A lot has changed in the past dozen years, but our belief in and support of powersports dealers has not wavered. We do not view dealers as useless middlemen who simply mark up Giant Loop products. By strategically growing, developing and expanding our manufacturing capabilities, Giant Loop has been able to set industry benchmarks for PREMIUM FEATURES, TOP-SHELF MATERIALS AND HIGHLY COMPETITIVE PRICES while offering dealers excellent margins. This is a win-win-win for consumers, dealers and Giant Loop.

We are here to help you sell more and to be more profitable. Customers choose to shop with you for your product knowledge and expertise, because you have earned a position as a trusted resource and inspire them to see the possibilities — the world of adventure offered by powersports-based outdoor recreation.

And that adds value not only to our businesses, but to the entire powersports industry.

Thank you all!

An exciting message from Giant Loop Ambassador Aaron Steinmann…

Giant Loop in New Zealand“Three and a half years, 134,000K and 50 countries later my bike finally got cleared by New Zealand customs and is back on home soil. Tomorrow I’ll head north from Auckland towards Cape Reinga and start a top to bottom of New Zealand which is how I started all this sillyness. A quick thanks to MotoZ for supporting me with another set of tires, and to Giant Loop who has always sent me whatever I might need of theirs anywhere in the world.” — Aaron Steinmann (February 1, 2020)
