Zigzag Handlebar Bag Reviewed at Sur-Ron

By | bike packing, Blog, Giant Loop Gear, Reviews, Riders, Tech Tips

Ride lighter, faster and farther with GL Zigzag Handlebar Bag!

Zigzag Handlebar Bag Reviewed at Sur-Ron“The craftsman who made my seat, James Renazco of Renazco Racing turned me on to a fantastic storage solution for my bike. It’s called the Zigzag Handlebar Bag made by a company called Giant Loop. I cannot think of a better ‘glove box’ bag for my bike. It’s simple, convenient, well made and a great addition to my bike. The logo and silver accents on the front of the bag are reflective as well!”Mark Kitaoka, Sur-Ron

Great looking bike – thanks Mark!

GL Ambassador Danell Lynn Article in OutdoorX4

By | Adventure Touring, bike packing, Blog, Camping, Dry Bags, Events, Giant Loop Gear, News, Overland, Panniers, Reviews, Riders, Straps, Tank Bags, Tech Tips, travel, Triumph

Keep an eye out for this beautiful adventure travel article by Guinness World Record holder and Giant Loop Ambassador Danell Lynn in Issue 36 of OutdoorX4. Written and photographed by Danell, “Colonial Mexico” recounts her travels on her trusty Triumph Bonneville “Amelia”… 

Danell rides with Siskiyou Panniers, Fandango Tank Bag and Rogue Dry Bag on this journey, keeping it a little lighter these days than her world record setting ride of all 50 states in a single year — “Longest journey by motorcycle in a single country” — she is the first solo woman motorcyclist to hold the record.

“Giant Loop was my first and only bag choice as the ride began its planning. I am so pleased with it. The ease of use, and complete dryness of my gear through downpours, will keep me coming back to Giant Loop.” — Danell Lynn

We are proud to play a role in Danell’s incredible travels. She puts GL products to a degree of testing that would take most riders many years to equal. Her spirit matches our mission as a brand and company. Cheers, Danell!

Gearing-up a Husqvarna in Kentucky

“I’m super glad I brought all that, because about 70 miles in to the first day and the farthest point from our cabin we got a flat. Luckily I had a tube and tools in the MoJavi Saddlebags, a patch kit and pump in my Possibles Pouch. So I was able to swap the tube and we were on our way. The MoJavi Saddlebags were super secure even on some enduro type stepped ledges. They didn’t get in my way at all and held secure where I mounted them. Super convenient and stable. Thank you!” — Andy Janik, Sullivan Tool and Repair

Nice gear — thanks for going with Giant Loop!

Insta360 Cam Covers GL MoJavi, Buckin’ Roll and Zigzag Bags

Check out this Bend, OR dirt bike chase with Giant Loop’s MoJavi Saddlebags, Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag and Zigzag Handlebar Bag

Shot with the Insta360, our dude Ryan chasing Instacam distributor Peter on a single track trail. We love how the MoJavi Saddlebag on Peter’s KTM 500 EXC never shifts, bounces or gets in the way. On Ryan’s Suzuki RMZ 450, the Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag and Zigzag Handlebar Bag is also equally stable…

With Giant Loop gear, riders can pack less weight in their backpack and more on the bike for better endurance, comfort and reduced fatigue. Like it’s not even there!

Benvenuto Federico!

By | Blog, Events, News, Photos, Riders, travel, Yamaha

Our dear friend and new Giant Loop Ambassador Federico Tondelli has been on the team for a very long time. GL’s first trip to the huge EICMA Motorcycle show in Milano was in 2011. We had never been in the show, never been to Italy. We don’t speak any Italian. We needed a motorcycle for display in our stand in the USA Pavilion, so I started posting online that we needed a bike parked in our stand for a few days…

Out of the blue, Federico contacts us and offers to let Giant Loop take delivery of his new Yamaha Super Tenere at the show – all we had to do was roll it from the Yamaha stand to ours! We were blown away by Fede’s kindness and willingness to help. 

Since then, he has helped us in countless other ways. Last year, during the off-season for MotoGP (he is now the press manager for the Suzuki team), Federico rode in South America with GL gear and took a ton of beautiful photos.

Here’s shot of dinner from our 2013 trip to EICMA. That’s Fede (second from left) enjoying plate-sized Milanesa at a classic Lombardy restaurant in Milano…

“Dear Harold, I spent the whole morning to find some proper words to express how much honored and proud I am to read these beautiful words that you wrote for me, but I couldn’t. So please allow me to just say: THANK YOU. Giant Loop has a very special place in my heart. Not only as a brand, but also as the people like you who I consider a true friend besides and before any ‘business’. My trip in Patagonia has been a true life-changer for me and proved once again how much the GL’s products are well thought, well engineered and well done. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” — Fede

Federico has shared the truest Italian hospitality with us for many years, and has been a steadfast friend and ally for Giant Loop throughout most of our history as a company. Grande Fede!
