Yamaha’s much anticipated new Ténéré 700 has finally arrived in North America. Although we’re just seeing the first production of the Ténéré 700 here in North America, our friends Dave and Steve in Australia have spent more than a year riding and testing this bike!

“I just wanted to let you know my Diablo Pro has been OUTSTANDING. The quality craftsmanship is second to none and I not only get compliments from fellow-ADV riders, but try and sway their decision to spend the money for a life-long tank bag. Cheers from PA. Stay safe man!” – Nate Shank
Thank you so much for the kind and encouraging words. We hope you, your family and community are staying safe and healthy…
After years of testing and development, Giant Loop’s new Tail Rack delivers a rugged, lightweight, low-profile, universal-fitting solution for anchoring saddlebags, tool packs and gear to any motorcycle’s rear plastic fender. Crafted from black anodized aluminum, the Tail Rack features unique stainless steel wire gate carabiner-style clips for quick strap attachment. Stainless steel hardware makes installation quick and easy. Included aluminum spacers slightly raise the Tail Rack, so Giant Loop’s stretch polyurethane Pronghorn Straps and webbing straps can slide beneath for solid mounting of GL’s Coyote Saddlebag, MoJavi Saddlebag, Klamath Tail Rack Pack, Possibles Pouch and other relatively light, compact items.
Weighing just 9.4 ounces (including hardware and spacers), the GL Tail Rack measures 5-inches wide by 8-inches long x 5/8-inch tall. Four wire-gate closures prevent webbing from disconnecting even when riding in the roughest terrain. The Tail Rack can be mounted in two different positions on virtually any dirt bike, dual sport or enduro rear plastic fender. All hardware required for installation is included (4x stainless steel button head bolts, 4x stainless steel nylock nuts, 4x stainless steel washers and 4x aluminum spacers). Total load restricted to 10 lbs. maximum, as the Tail Rack is designed to provide secure anchor points for Giant Loop Saddlebags and gear, NOT to support heavy loads.
USA MSRP for Giant Loop’s universal Tail Rack solution is $49.

NEW! Footmans Loop Anchor Kit
Giant Loop’s new Footmans Loop Anchor Kit is a simple, affordable, universal way to add solid anchor points for webbing straps to motorcycles, snow bikes, snowmobiles, ATVs, UTVs and 4x4s. Giant Loop’s Footmans Loop Anchor Kit is especially handy for creating lash points to secure our MoJavi Saddlebag and Coyote Saddlebag to late model KTM EXCs, Husqvarna FEs and other dual sport and dirt bikes that use an under fender support that prevents the fender hooks on our Saddlebags from from getting a good purchase on the fender edge.
Giant Loop’s Footmans Loop Anchor Kit includes 2 anodized black footmans loops, 4 flat washers, 4 locking nuts (8mm) and 4 aluminum M5x20mm button head bolts (3mm allen).

Motorcycle?racing is a strong part of Boano family heritage. The founder, Roberto Boano was an accomplished Italian and World Motocross racer. His company was formed in 1976 to sale and service off road motorcycles. The shop grew until 1981 when Roberto became an official Honda dealer, carrying the brand until 2010. Roberto raced the Dakar Rally 5 times, twice as factory Honda pilot, riding Honda Africa Twins in each race. His best finish was 11th in 1991. With?Roberto’s experience with factory rally bikes, combined with his two son’s, Ivan and Jarno, careers as ISDE Gold Medalists,?European?Enduro Champions and World Supermoto podium contender, the Boano family is well versed in getting bikes and racers on the rostrum.
In 2005, Betamotor of Italy chose Boano Racing to manage the Beta factory team in the World Enduro Championships and Italian Enduro championship. This alliance has gotten stronger in the last couple years, with Boano Racing building the Beta 450RR Atacama, a Dakar legal Rally Replica. Boano Racing supports privateer racers participating in FIM rallies, like Pharoah’s in Egypt and Sardegna in Italy, plus the Dakar Rally in South America.
Today, Jarno is in Egypt, managing racer Napoli Giulio and maintaining the Beta 450RR Atacama, during the stages of Pharoah’s Rally. Napoli raced the #94 Beta 450RR Atacama in the 2014 Dakar and retired from altitude sickness after the third stage. ?Wish them luck!!
Dakar is THE international offroad racing event of the year. Nothing thrills me more than New Years Day, since it indicates that start of Dakar is right around the corner.
Dakar veteran Riaan Van Niekerk ripped to a 12th place overall finish on board his Broadlink KTM 450RR, besting his rookie finish of 13th. He had his best stage time on Stage 5, coming in 4th place, against a laundry list of Factory-backed racers. ?Riaan uses the Mojavi for his practice rides, back home in South Africa.?Great Job Riaan!
At the other end of the pack, Luca Viglio, #173, finished 76th aboard his Boano Racing built Beta 450RR Atacama. Boano Racing is our Italian distributor.
Many times during the stages, Luca was faced with challenges that would keep him from finishing. Each time, he dug a bit deeper, or benefitted from the support of his team, locals and other racers, to help get him to the finish. I quoted a few remarks from Luca on ADVrider.com, translated by inmate auguzt. Thanks auguzt for sharing the news of Luca’s progress.
