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…
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.
And thanks for riding with Giant Loop!
Currently the event is in standby. Stay tuned for more updates and pray for some rain!
A great photo and some kind words from a customer posting on Adventure Rider about the GL Fandango Tank Bag…“Absolutely love my Fandango Tank Bag on my CSC RX4. Fits like a glove. Best system available.” — BenM721
Thanks Ben — and thanks for riding with Giant Loop!
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
Thanks for riding with Giant Loop!
“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
Thanks — we love Motorcycle Gear Hub!

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE 9TH ANNUAL GIANT LOOP RIDE IS ON — LET’S GO
9th Annual Giant Loop Ride is September 18-20, 2020 in Crystal Crane Hot Springs, Oregon, USA…
Join us — over 170 people registered already, for the biggest dual sport event in Oregon!
Test fitting the KTM 390 Adventure Part Three — “Weekend Plus!”
We offer have many options depending on the length of the ride and how much gear riders require to be safe, comfortable and self-reliant…
Giant Loop designs our motorcycle soft luggage as a modular, customizable packing system – pieces can be added and subtracted as needed. Bags can be scaled up or down depending on bike type or riding requirements…
Local rider and good friend Kathy let GL use her brand new 2020 KTM 390 Adventure to model our gear. This bike is a great “bang for the buck” — super quiet and stealthy. And less than $8,000 out the door!
We ran through a few different combos — mixing and matching Great Basin Saddlebags, Coyote Saddlebags, MoJavi Saddlebags with our Fandango, Diablo and Buckin’ Roll Tank Bags, Zigzag Handlebar Bag, Pannier Pockets, Rogue Dry Bag, Possibles Pouch, Bushwackers Hand Guards and Lift Straps…
“Personally, my favorite combo because it’s well proportioned to the bike is Coyote (expands with Rogue and Possible Pouches), Diablo (expands with Pannier Pockets) – plus Zigzag and Possibles Pouches on crash bars if more storage is needed.” — Harold Olaf Cecil, Founder of Giant Loop
“Fishing from my paddle board on the Deschutes just upstream from Bend – my favorite stretch to paddle, but it’s sort of just playing around because it’s really tough to control the board and the fly line!” — GL founder and owner, Harold Olaf Cecil
“Tank Bags are some of the most useful pieces of kit you can add to a motorcycle, offering streamlined cargo capacity that’s quickly accessible. Over the past year, I’ve run two Giant Loop Tank Bags. Before I left for Labrador last year, Giant Loop sent me a Diablo Tank Bag, and this spring, they sent me the updated Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag. They’re similar, but they’re designed for slightly different roles.” — Zac Kurylyk
“Added some SW Motech Pro luggage racks to my Africa Twin and strapped on the GL MotoTrekk Panniers. In my estimation, these are nearly perfect as a mid size soft pannier. They look and work great on the AT and compliment the Klamath Tail Bag.” — Wind_Rider, advrider.com
Nice setup — thanks for sharing!
“Giant Loop is not just for adventure and enduros. I have had your Zigzag Handlebar Bag for over a year and it’s a must have for any bike. I recently added the Klamath Tail Bag with the Tail Rack. It’s a great setup and amazing quality at a great price it’s just the right amount of storage without being too large. The upgraded straps are fantastic. Thanks Giant good stuff!” — Ron Eiermann
Thanks for the feedback Ron — nice ride!
This super rugged roll-top pocket integrates with GL saddlebags, panniers and dry bags to create external, easy access pockets, and it securely straps onto tail racks, engine guards, roll cages, raft frames and more. Essential kit for every outdoor adventure!
Great images from the UTV world!
“Hey guys, I took some photos on our latest overland adventure. I put those Tillamook Bags to work. Hope you guys enjoy, Cheers!” — Cameron, on Instagram @camhootch
Get ready for fall! GL is introducing two new styles of Bushwackers Hand Guards — one with a topo map theme and the other with a pine forest motif…
Both designs feature our new 18″ Pronghorn Straps — 3″ longer than the previous version to accommodate a wider array of deflectors and handlebars.
We call them “hand savers” as they keep hands dry up to forearm while riding in rain. Keep controls cleaner, drier, warmer and more comfortable in dirt, mud, rain, snow and brush. The new straps fit virtually every bike and deflector combo on the market — are easier to install and remove and are better suited to off-road riding. They pack flat to stow until needed — mounted and removed in just a minute. Perfect for adventure touring, dual sporting, trail riding, off-road racing, snow biking and snowmobiling.
“When you only get one pannier, it better be a good one. Find out what comes in the kit when you order a Round the World Pannier and Pannier Mount from Giant Loop. Giant Loop sells these in pairs if your bike takes two! The RTW Pannier is a universal fit for any and all motorcycles, I just happen to have gotten one for my Indian FTR 1200 S.” — Wes Fleming, Motorcycle Test Kitchen
Check out this informative review by Joe at RevZilla…
“Running out of gas is a problem, and it’s totally avoidable if you bring a little extra! Giant Loops’ Fuel Safe Bladder is an excellent way to add additional fuel storage to your motorcycle, and its compact size means you can easily stow it away when not in use.” — Joe Zito at RevZilla
