Thank you RoadRUNNER Motorcycle, Touring, and Travel for reviewing our MotoTrekk Panniers in the July/August issue

RoadRUNNER Reviews GL’s MotoTrekk Panniers

“I’m very happy with the solution and highly recommend it to any adventure rider who goes off-road, but in fact it has a lot of value for road touring due to its low weight and narrow profile.” — Yuval Naveh

“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!

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!

Zigzag Bag, Tail Rack, Possibles Pouch and Pronghorn Straps

By | Adventure Touring, bike packing, Blog, Dirt bike, Enduro, Giant Loop Gear, Photos, Straps, Tech Tips, trail bike

Our friend Andy sent us an email detailing how he uses Giant Loop gear to make the magic happen…

Handlebar Bag ,Tail Rack , Possibilities Pouch and Prong Straps“I’ve been using the Zigzag Handlebar Bag, Tail Rack and Possibles Pouch with the Pronghorn Straps. The Tail Rack holds the Possibles Pouch super secure with the Pronghorn Straps. I threw all my tools in there so I always have them on the bike and did some really rocky rides and hill climbs and I was never worried I’d lose the tools. It was great! Not having to worry about my gear being secure is so nice. It gives me the confidence to rip harder sections and never worry. The Zigzag Handlebar Bag is great for holding my phone and snacks and charger. Not having to take my backpack off to get to essentials is great!” — Andy Janik

Good one Andy — thanks!

“I would think people are planning and gearing up for when the “all clear” whistle blows, or at least things open up a bit. I sure am. When I’m not sewing masks for friends I’m modifying my camping gear. I’ve gotten good at Whoopi slings. I did a (socially isolated) dry run the other day to play with and test new gear.” — Bob Simon

Our Fuel Bag Reviewed

We’re very proud of this product

The Gas Bag

“Space is always a concern when traveling off-road, and the distance between filling stations can be enormous. The Gas Bag allows off-roaders to roll up the empty container and minimize storage when they are empty. They are a very tough ballistic nylon and can be easily moved from the truck and strapped to an ATV, side-by-side, dirt bike, snow bike or snowmobile using the daisy-chain webbing. With sizes of 1, 2, 3 or 5 gal., you can match a Gas Bag to your needs.” — Perry Mack, 4WDrive Magazine

Thanks, Perry — always fantastic to get a great review!

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
