Rider Jaume writes to us about our new Pronghorn Straps

Why I Love Giant Loop“When I’m traveling through mountains or across deserts I can’t take any risks, so I always trust Giant Loop to carry my gear. Light, reliable, resistant and well designed.  They have never let me down, which is why they are my constant travel companions. Best regards!” — Jaume von Arend, Fòrum Gastronòmic

Cool, Jaume — we love you too!

THE GIANT LOOP on a KTM 500 EXC

He made it, around-the-world!!!

Round-The-World on a KTM 500 EXC

“After 139,870K through 51 different countries on 6 continents over three and a half years — yesterday I finally made it to Bluff, the end of my journey. I hadn’t planned on going there yesterday, but after seeing rain was forecast I decided to head to Invercargill and before I knew it — I was doing a wheelie on the beach. It seems appropriate because this is how my “Forrest Gump” type journey has been mostly, which is unplanned and taking it day by day. I never set out to ride around the world. After Oregon, I decided Alaska was a better ending point. And then, for whatever reasons I thought I’ll turn around and ride it back home to New Zealand. A big thanks to Harold Olaf Cecil at Giant Loop, Dave at Adventure-Spec, and MotoZ Tires who have supported me with gear. But especially, I would like to thank all of you who have either been following my journey on Facebook, opened your home to me or I’ve met in person. I’ve been humbled and grateful for all the kindness I’ve experienced along the way and it’s given me faith in humanity, which is one of the awesome things about traveling. So no matter what journey you have in mind, just go do it and experience the kindness out there waiting for you.” — Aaron Steinmann (photos by Burt Munro)

Soggy Adventure on a Honda CRF250L with Giant Loop Bags

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

The Dork in the Road channel is a GL favorite!

An exciting message from Giant Loop Ambassador Aaron Steinmann…

Next will be a Coyote Saddle Bag for multiple day adventures. These small displacement adventure bikes can’t take the added weight of hard boxes and pannier racks. Giant Loop has the answer. I will be buying more Giant Loop products for my adventures next year as well. Thanks!” – Brent Lundevall

Right on Brent!

For the most grueling challenges, riders like Jeff Jensen turn to Giant Loop… 

Jeff successfully completed the “Tour of Idaho” solo!

“This year I used MoJavi Bags for a short trip in Southeast Oregon and then for a few additional days in the North Rim country before my full ten days of the TOI.”

“A navigation error put me on the old abandoned trail down an avalanche path. I spent over seven hours getting myself out of that and then resumed the tour, still having 75 miles to go.”

“The final Challenge Point on the tour – Sundance Lookout.”

Congrats Jeff on finishing the legendary Tour of Idaho
