Framing the Spirit of Our 9th Annual Ride

By | Adventure Touring, Camping, Dirt bike, Dualsport, Enduro, Events, News, Overland, Photos, Riders, trail bike, travel

A couple of great photos by the amazing photographer Dave Schelske to kick off the occasion

“Woohooo! First time I’ve seen blue in the sky in almost 2 weeks. A great way to kick off the 9th Annual Giant Loop Ride! A day early for the Rally and already have 222 miles in on some epic desert terrain.”Dave Schelske @advnorthwest

Go light. Go fast. Go far!

And thanks Dave, for riding with Giant Loop!

The Annual Ride Must Go On! 

By | Blog, Camping, Events, FAQ, News, travel

Although it’s smoky in eastern Oregon, the Air Quality Index is better than most of the state, and the forecast is for conditions to improve…

See you at Crystal Crane Hot Springs  on Friday for the 9th Annual Giant Loop Ride! 

To minimize breathing smoke, please truck or trailer your bike there if possible – your lungs will thank you. Fire danger is extreme everywhere, so be extra careful around dry grasses, etc. Wearing a face mask does help with the smoke – and anything is better than nothing, even if you don’t have an X-95 rated mask.

Go light. Go fast. Go far!

And thanks for riding with Giant Loop!

GL Mojavi Saddlebag Reviewed

Check out this article from our friends at Dirt Bike Magazine!

“We tested the Giant Loop MoJavi system with a Possibles Pouch. This adds an additional 3.5 liters of volume. Both the MoJavi and Possibles mount up very simply, and the new Pronghorn Strap (uses stamped aluminum buckles, arrows line up for easy fastening, and the metal buckle is sheathed for scratch protection) is an improvement in mounting the luggage up. We stuffed them with a spare waterproof pullover; fit in tubes, tools, rags and spares; and can honestly say that we didn’t feel the luggage when we rode. Over months of testing we found the Giant Loop MoJavi to be super durable. They distribute the load nicely, and because we were carrying less of a body load, our long, tough off-road pulls were made easier. The zippers are super heavy duty and a bit tough to close, but beyond that, we consider this a big thumbs up for the dualsport/long-haul trail rider!”Dirt Bike Magazine

Tracker Packer Sales Donated to Kurt Caselli Foundation This Month

By | Giant Loop Gear, News, Riders, Tech Tips

Giant Loop developed the Tracker Packer holsters in collaboration with the Kurt Caselli Foundation as part of its mission to improve the safety of riders and racers in the off-road motorcycling industry…

During September, we’re donating 100% of gross sales revenue for the Tracker Packer holsters to the Foundation to support its safety tools, training, scholarship and other key programs.

The safest way to carry and use a GPS-enabled emergency beacon is to secure the device to the user. In motorcycle accidents, bike and rider often separate. The rugged Tracker Packer holster ensures the device stays with the rider and is plainly visible to first-on-the-scene…

With the ability to check in, send messages via satellite and to summon SOS emergency rescue, devices like the SPOT Gen3 and Garmin inReach have become indispensible kit for every adventure beyond cell phone range.

CHECK OUT THE TRACKER PACKERS — AND SUPPORT THE KURT CASELLI FOUNDATION!

Great Basin Saddlebag and Tillamook Dry Bag reviewed at Motorcycle Gear Hub — 5 out of 5 stars!

“The Great Basin Saddlebag is unrivaled. When all is said and done, it’s the universal fitment and versatility that puts Giant Loop’s flagship rockstar head and shoulders above the competition. You will benefit from putting this biomorphic saddlebag into your motorcycling life. And I speak from experience. Motorcycle Gear Hub’s seal of approval and most recommended! Buy the Giant Loop Great Basin Saddlebag and grab either the Tillamook Dry Bag or the Rogue Dry Bag if you want to build an epic, quick-installing, rackless touring rig to live for weeks at a time on the road!”Motorcycle Gear Hub
